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.
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.
The Arctic fox has multiple adaptations to help it survive the same. Compared to other fox species, the Arctic fox has relatively shorter necks, legs and ears(structural adaptation). With a smaller surface area exposed, less heat is lost when compared to the more lanky Southern Foxes. The southern foxes are 25% larger that their Arctic counterparts, and thus unable to survive the harsh Arctic weather. Additionally, the Arctic fox also has a thick and insulating coat, including on the tail.
Because buffalo was so plentiful, they were hunted most often. Making buffalo a big part of Cree Diets. Nomadic bands would follow the migration of buffalo, so that they always had food. Moose and Elk were also hunted occasionally and eaten. Wolves, lynx, coyotes, and rabbits were caught with traps the Cree would use to catch smaller game.
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.
Diet: In the summer, the pronghorn grazes on grasses, forbs, and cactus. In the winter, the pronghorn will eat sagebrush and other available plants. Pronghorn Predators: Coyotes, bobcats, mountain lions, golden eagles, and wild dogs Interesting Facts: -The pronghorn is the fastest mammal in the world! -They have great eyesight, they can pick up movement from 3 miles away -Fawns weigh 2-4 kg at birth (5-9 pounds) -Pronghorns are not leapers, i.e. If there was a fence, they wouldn’t jump over it, they would most likely climb under
They are found in many different habitats: grasslands, deserts, tundras, forests, etc. Grey wolves are located in Asia, Canada, Europe, and the United States. Wolves are carnivores, hunting both smaller and larger animals, such as mice, rabbits, squirrels, fish, crabs, deer, elk, moose, and caribou. They are able to swim and hunt for food in water, hence fish being a common
Originally thought to be a large species of Squirrel, The Aye-Aye is the largest nocturnal primate in the world. So, the Aye-Aye belongs to Kingdom Animalia, because it is a multicellular organism, and since it has a notochord, cartilaginous skeletal rod supporting the body, that supports its body, it is placed in the Phylum Chordata and Clade Synapsida (Yoder, pg. 1339-1341). The Aye-Aye’s Class is Mammalia due to its fur, mammary glands,
These were the most numerous among the Native when the first contact with the Europeans was made. Grouping divisions are based on language differences, as well as in survival methods and technological skills. The Inupiat and the Yupik, known as the real people, continue to hunt and gather in communities. They subsist on both sea and land resources. Even to this day their lives continue to evolve around the polar bear, caribou, fish, seal, whale, and walrus.
The moose was selected for this essay because the moose is a symbol of Canada. That depicts Canadian toughness and ruggedness similar to the game of hockey. The moose is the largest species in the deer family and they live among other animals in the Taiga or Boreal forest biome. Moose are distinguished by palmate flat antlers of the males; other members of the family have antlers with a branched form resembling a tree configuration. Moose are isolated from other deer species and they do not form herds.
