Except for swiping at other animals, sloths are pretty defenseless. They blend with trees and slow moving so they don’t attract attention from predators. If the sloths leave their trees they become very vulnerable. Their main predators are jaguars, eagles, and humans. If a human shoots a sloth, they tend to stay in place because their claws hold them in place so well.
Sloths are very strange animals with their sluggish behaviors, yet they are very interesting at the same time. Sloths belong to the mammalian order Xenarthra, which also includes armadillos and anteaters. There are two different kinds of sloths, the two-toed and the three-toed sloth. There are four species of three-toed sloths and two species of two-toed sloths. Two of these species of sloth can be found in the tropical forests of Costa Rica, the brown-throated three-toed sloth (Bradypus variegatus) and Hoffmann’s two-toed sloth (Choloepus hoffmanni).
Meerkats have binocular vision and have dark markings around their eyes, which keeps sun glares out of their eyes. Meerkats are mainly insectivores that use up the day to forage for food such as beetles, spiders, millipedes and centipedes. However, meerkats will eat snake eggs, grubs, and scorpions whenever they find them. Meerkats live in dry and open conditions like the Kalahari Desert in Africa, where there are sandy soils. Their primary habitat is in underground burrows in which they dig in sandy soils.
Dholes are wild dogs from Asia. They are very fantastic creatures in many ways. The Dhole is a wild dog, but there are three zoos that have packs of Dholes. They have the appetite of a bear that needs to fatten up for the winter there are many similarities and differences between wild dogs and tamed dogs including the Dhole. The Dholes however, are endangered animals and there are very few left in the wild.
It is believed that sea lions are capable to detect humans by smell over a long distance of hundreds of meters away. The sea lions use their sensitive vibrissae to explore objects on land and in the water. They seek out physical touch with other sea lions and form groups and lye with each other on land. Feeding habits: Sea Lions are carnivorous having fish being their favorite food including herring, mackerel, pompano, salmon, capelin and squid. They also feed on crabs and clams.
Dogs all have canine teeth, but they come in different sizes. A mastiff could have very large teeth and a yorkie could have small teeth. All dogs have non retractable claws. This means a dog can’t make its claws go in and out like a cat can. Some dogs may be skinny, muscular, or even fat.
The three sloth are vertebrates. The Three-Toed Sloth has one adaptation which is that it is so sedentary, or still and lazy, that an algae grows on its fur, making a camouflage for the sloth to hide itself with. Their hind legs are incredibly weak, but their front arms are so strong, that sloths pull themselves along the ground. This makes it clumsy on land, but a surprisingly great swimmer. They also have an incredibly strong grip provided by their claws, which helps them stay up in trees There main prey are: buds, leaves, fruit There main predators are: Eagles, snakes, and jaguars
The jaw is very powerful, it has the strongest bite of all the mammals. It has canine teeth, the hyena’s teeth can resist fractures. How I said the hyena’s teeth (jaw) is powerful, the hyena’s teeth can even chew down bones. That’s how they are able to hunt and get their food, I will be talking about where the hyenas live because those features are from the places where they live. I will talk of the hyenas place where they live on the next paragraph.
