Unique Wolves If you visit northern Wisconsin, don't be surprised to hear the eerie and beautiful howl of wolves at night. They have returned after about 40 years of absence. By the 1950's, wolves had been driven out of their ancient homeland by ranchers and the federal government. Wolves killed livestock for food, so they were considered nuisances. But starting in the 1990's, the state reintroduced wolves to help manage the deer population.
Those adaptions are what keeps the polar bear species alive today. These bears hunt for their food and use the freezing water to get to some of their prey. To assist with swimming, they have a four inch layer of blubber that lets them stay bouyont. Along with their huge bodies, these carnivores have long powerful claws that grip the ice. When swimming, they have webbed feet to assist in swimming.
They are nearly extinct in many others. Removal of forests and hunting for meat has resulted in a huge loss of the chimpanzees. Chimpanzees are a very close relative of humans and they share 98% of their genes with us. There are four different types of chimpanzees; Western chimpanzees, Central chimpanzees, Eastern chimpanzees, and Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzees. Chimpanzees have very long arms that go down past their knees.
Bobcats, Canada lynx, bears, wolverines, and packs of coyotes usually prey mainly on fawns. Bears may sometimes attack adult deer, while lynxes, coyotes, and wolverines are most likely to take adult deer when the ungulates are weakened by harsh winter weather. Many scavengers rely on deer as carrion, including New World vultures, raptors, foxes, and corvids.By the early 20th century, commercial exploitation and unregulated
Polar Bears Have Natural Heating Ability The arctic circle is a cold and unforgiving wasteland, to live there you have to able to regulate your body temperature. According to Polar Bears International, polar bears are built for these harsh environments. Polar bears are animals that have to face this tough environment every single day of their lives. The polar bear uses many ways to insulate its body from the inside to the outside. Charlotte Lindqvist, Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at Buffalo College of Arts and Sciences, states “Gene functions that had to do with nitric oxide production seemed to be more enriched in the polar bear[s]” (qtd.
Introduction: Due to moving the arctic snow fox to the tropical rainforest, the snow fox will experience tremendous amount of evolutionary impact. So due to speciation, the formation of a new species due to evolution, it will be called a Forest Fox. The Arctic Snow Foxes environment is very frigid. They feed on the weakest of animals, and even feed of of the leftovers of other animals like polar bears. One of its predators is a polar bear, but because of its white fur, it is very hard to spot.
The Kermode Bear The Kermode Bear is a different kind of black bear because it has a gene that normal black bears don’t have. This bear was mentioned in a book called Touching Spirit Bear. This particular bear is a subspecies of the black bear. It has dark nose pads, white or creamy fur, brown eyes, and nearly white claws. This kind of bear is quite rare and maybe about 100 exist near British Columbia.
Wolves are considered to be one of the most intelligent animals on the earth. They have 30% more brain capacity than all dogs. Wolves aren’t at all what they seem in movies like “The Grey.” In “The Grey” wolves hunt and chase humans similar to the shark in the movie “Jaws.” It’s sheer ignorance. Quite the opposite happens in real life, they are usually running from us. Wolves purposely avoid us, but we really don’t know if it’s out of fear or respect.
What will happen to you if you stepped of the tail of your pet wolf? Your pet cat has been out of the wild for hundreds of generations, yet it still has the instincts to hunt. A bear that was removed from the wild as a cub will definitely still learn how to hunt and kill. This puts you in danger if you are trying to keep this animal as pet. As Slater states in her article “And though such animals are no longer wild, neither are they
Pit vipers are fascinating creatures. The scientific name for the pit viper is a Crotalinae. This interesting name originated from Asia and western Europe 24 million years ago. Pit Vipers range in size, they can grow all the way to 12 feet such as the bushmaster and can get as tiny as 2 feet or smaller such as the Mao-Lan pit viper. These creatures are very giant so they can weigh up to 30 pounds, but they can be very tiny as well only weighing 6.6 pounds.
The less food supply, water, and shelter in the area, the larger range a bears home becomes. With the bears strong build, they are able to travel anywhere in the forest. With long sharp claws, they can climb trees when feeling threatened. They have very
