Introduction Mountain lions, also known as pumas or a cougar, the Felis Concolor Hippolestes have a very vague history. The fossil record of these large felines is a mystery to many, according to the Mountain Lion Foundation, for two reasons. The first, is that most ancestral cats occupied tropical forests where the environmental factors made it difficult to preserve fossils. The second was that the physical characteristics of these large cats were similar to the capture of prey making it difficult to distinguish a felines structure. Because these cats are so difficult to distinguish due to their similarities, there have been many debates about different species of cats, who their ancestors are and where they originated from.

This large cat can be found in Southern, North, and East Africa and some localities in Iran, but mainly in Eastern and Southern Africa. The cheetah’s species is IUCN Red listed as “vulnerable” due to the suffering of habitat loss, poaching, illegal pet trades, conflict with humans, and decline of prey. cheetahs inhabit various habitats within Africa such as dry forests, scrub forests, and savannahs.
In doing this they are able to control their body temperature because it will conform to the environmental temperature. The Social Life of the Naked Mole Rats Interestingly, even though the naked mole rats are mammals, they show a social life referred to as eusociality. This is the same social life as the ones that ants and wasps exhibit. There is a queen, and this is the only female that reproduces. There are a few males who will mate with the queen while the rest of the colony is made up of workers and guards.
The predator, which is an eagle, the rats hide in mud; The eagle is able to see the white rats and eats them, that is an advantage to brown rats. Disruptive selection means that natural selection is in favor of the average general individual in a group of organisms. An example of disruptive selection can be where there are white and black rabbits. Their offspring are grey, in the area where they live there are white and black rocks which they use to hide from their predators, this only benefits white and black rabbits. However, grey rabbits will have a greater chance to get eaten.

Fennec Fox Fossil record or genetic record of the Fennec Fox is currently unknown, but there have been times where scientists believed that this species were classified in a different genus called Fennecus. Scientists have found many similarities and differences in this species compared to other true foxes. Shared traits of this species include being omnivorous, male foxes marking their territory and compete for mates during mating season, and they are predators in their environment.
