Rivera, Ma. Ione Skye Niches and Adaptations Part I: Animal #1 BLACK BEARS American Black Bears are forest dwellers and are usually found in mixed forest areas and also places that can be as high as 10,000 feet in elevation. Their habitat is mainly in an understory surrounded with lots of fruits, nuts, and berries.
The United States of America abounds with beautiful scenery, amazing natural resources, and fascinating animals. Each state can boast of its unique natural resources. The state of Alaska provides an abundant habitat for numerous species of mammals, fish, and birds.
Grizzly bears are a dominant species in their niche. They are located in the north america deep into the forest. There favorite food is salmon. There ecosystem is filled with all sorts of other wildlife. Grizzly bears are also efficient in the ecosystem.
“Once upon a time there were fourteen bears.” In this picture, they are no longer lined up on a log, easy to count in a row. Instead this page invites a challenge, with busy bears engaged in activities like perching on front stoops, playing ball, painting pictures, and reading books. But yes, there are still 14 of them. Some of them are engaging with each other, playing a game of tag, or catch.
Earth’s climate has been changing over the last few decades, with the global temperatures rising at a high rate (Corell, 2006). Some of these climate changes are due to natural causes, although the strength at which temperatures are rising indicates human influences, such as increased carbon dioxide emission, as well as other greenhouse gases. Climate change particularly affects the Arctic region, where warmer temperatures are causing decrease in sea ice extent and thickness, permafrost thawing, coastal erosion, changes in ice sheets and shelves, and consequently, changes in the distribution and reproduction rates of Arctic species (Corell, 2006).
Kermode bears are important for many reasons. The idea of the Kermode bear started with Frances Kermode of the royal British army the bear was named after him because many people thought he was very important. Sometimes these bears can help states attract tourist which helps the state raise money to save the bear’s habitats and the bears themselves from being endangered. These bears are important to people in so many different ways like the bears help hunters in hunting season, they also help give people the meat and bones they need they need to survive and to help make a profit (Local Distilleries’ Fight for Spirit Bears). The Kermode bears are also called the spirit bear because of their white ghostly look which makes them important to some
How do hunters help the population? Several natural predators of white-tailed deer occur. Wolves, cougars, American alligators, jaguars, and humans are the most effective natural predators of white-tailed deer. These predators frequently pick out easily caught young or infirm deer, but can and do take healthy adults of any size. 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
Ironically, most black bears are not black, but instead are mostly brown, blond, and sometimes reddish brown. Average adult males weight about 115 kilograms and females about 70 kilograms, thought the largest recorded black bear weighed 312 kilogams. Their diet mainly consists of grasses and berries, and acorns during the fall. Black bears consume about 20,000 calories per day, which is equivalent to a person eating 40 McDonald’s Big Mac sandwiches. A fun fact about Yosemite black bears is that their diet has drastically changed because they have become accustomed to eating human food.
Yellowstone has 61 different mammals spread around the park including moose, elk, badgers, otters, and many others. Yellowstone is the ultimate Bear Country with over 500 grizzly bears plus an estimate of 600 black bears. Bison are another huge wildlife attraction in Yellowstone with anywhere from 2,300 to 5,500 depending on the season. In January 2016, the amount of wolves recorded was 98 wolves living in 10 different packs. Now, there are at least 13 different packs spread over the
Arctic hares are about 43-70 centimetres long, not including tail length. They typically have a body mass of about 6-12 pounds, though some large hares can weigh up to 15 pounds. Arctic hares eat woody plants, lichens, mosses, berries, leaves, and various other
One of the main reasons polar bears are going extinct is because they aren’t getting the right amount of food they need to survive. Seals, the main food source for the polar bears, are animals that depend largely on the algae that grows on the ice of the Arctic. With the ice content slowly depleting, there isn’t enough seals to sustain the polar bear population. One of the
Humans consider polar bears as one of the cutest animals on the planet. Not only are they adorable, but they are also going extinct because of the warming temperatures in the Arctic. But what the public does not know is that the warmer weather is not the only thing killing off these animals; it is truly cannibalism. Rod Sterling's story, "Monsters Are Due on Maple street," reveals this surprising truth in a similar way. The story takes place in an ordinary neighborhood that is supposedly being attacked by aliens.
Bears with thicker coats have a higher survival rate A population will change over time. Survial rate of bears with thicker coats rises, population of bears with thin coats will gradually decrease 3. In ostriches, there are 2 types: ones that run fast and those that run slowly.
