The two species of elephant,
African and Asian, are the
largest land animals in the
world. An Asian bull may
achieve a height of 10 feet
at the shoulder and may
weigh up to 6 tons.
An African bull can weigh up to
7 tons. African elephants have
large ears and two fingers at
the end of their trunk. Asian
elephants have much smaller
ears and one finger at the end
of their trunk.
Wolves are the descendants
of a generalized, carnivore
ancestor called Creodont which
lived about 100 million years
ago. This ancestry applies
to all modern carnivores
such as cats, dogs and bears.
Eagles have powerful eye
sight allowing them to see
three to four times farther
away than a human. From
a perch position in a high
tree, eagles can see prey
up to one mile away.

Elephants eat up to 250kg of
food a day - that's a lot of
food, which means they
need large areas to live in.
The elephant's trunk is a
combination of the upper lip
and nose. It is prehensile and
can grasp onto many things
such as another elephant's tail.
Wolves weigh about 100 lbs.
and measure around 5.5 feet
from nose to tail tip which
makes them the largest
member of the dog family.
Bald eagles are not really bald. 
The feathers on their head
are white giving an appearance
of baldness.  Bald eagles were
once known as the White Eagle.

Sometimes when herds of
elephants are confined to small
National Parks, they can do a
lot of damage to the habitat.
Elephant trunks are sensitive
enough to pick up a single
blade of grass and strong
enough to pick up a heavy log.
Wolves are an extremely social
animal. They exist as a social
unit called a pack.
The bald eagle got its name
from the Old English word
"balde", meaning white.

In the biggest National Parks
the grass, trees and bushes
recover when the elephants
move to a different area.
A new born baby elephant
weighs in at about 120
kilograms, more than most
fully grown human beings.
Pack sizes vary, averaging
seven or less, depending on
variables including the current
numbers of the wolf population,
the abundance of food, and
wolf pack social factors.
Eagles are typically eight to
thirteen pounds. The body is
up to two feet in length. The
eagles skeleton only weighs
about 1/2 pound - about 5%
to 6% of its overall weight.

Elephants are strictly
vegetarians. Elephants eat
leaves, grass, twigs and small
branches.
 During birth, other female
elephants gather around the
mother to watch and protect
the baby. Calves suckle for
two years then eat solid food.
Various facial muscles, eyes,
ears and the nose are
extremely important when
wolves are expressing their
feelings.
  Bones in an eagle are
lightweight and hollow. The
beak, talons and feathers are
made of a material called
keratin.
Giraffes Primates Fox & Coyote Birds
Click on the giraffes for a large image.  Click on the gorilla for a large image. Click on the fox for a large image. Click on the owl for a large image.
A baby giraffe is about 6' tall
when it is born. During the first
month of its life it is hidden by
its mother for imprinting, safety
from predators like the lion, and
mutual recognition by the
mother and baby when they
return to the rest of the herd.
Fourteen primate species are
apes.  Apes are all Old World
primates.  The four largest
species--gorillas, orangutans,
chimpanzees and banabos, are
called great apes. Smaller
gibbons and siamangs are
classified as lesser apes.
Regarded as the embodiment
of cunning, the red fox is
extremely cautious and, like
other canids, capable of
learning from experience. The
fox is difficult to observe, as it
is shy, nervous, and primarily
nocturnal.
Owls are nocturnal birds of
prey. Owls have flattened
faces and forward facing
eyes, hooked bills and
powerful claws. The soft
fluffy plumage of an owl
allows them to fly noiselessly.

Click on the monkeys for a large image. Click on the coyote for a large image.
When giraffes get older, they
join a group of calves with one
cow staying behind to baby-sit
while the others feed. A calf
will remain in this nursery herd
for about one year.
Chimpanzees, gorillas and
bonobos live in central and
west Africa. Gibbons and
orangutans are found in SE
Asia. T
The best runner among the
canids, the coyote cruises
normally at 4050 km/h,
getting up to 65 km/h for
short distances, and can
make 14-foot leaps.
The falcon has a very strong
compact body with powerful,
long, pointed wings, and a
sharp, hooked beak. Peregrine
falcons have been called
nature's finest flying machine.

Giraffes are the tallest of all
land mammals. Adult males can
grow up to 17' tall. Their tall
legs enable them to see danger
form a long distance. Giraffes
can quickly escape danger by
running up to 35mph.
All primates are agile climbers
that grasp with their hands and
feet.  They have flat nails, not
claws, and have eyes on the
front of their heads and
binacular vision for depth
perception.
Bounding and graceful the
deer is the epitome of
wilderness beauty. Deer are
found in most parts of the
world where there are
woodland meadows to browse.
Peregrine falcons are nature's
fastest fliers: Peregrines have
been clocked diving, or
stooping, at speeds of up to
180 miles per hour!

With their long legs and neck,
giraffes can reach up to the 
leaves that are out of reach
for all other browsing animals.
Monkeys are the largest and
most varied group of primates
with 158 species. They live in
trees and have hands and feet
that grasp branches.
Three kinds of deer live in
North
The heron is the bird of
marshes and waterways. The
largest herons are the great
blue and the great white,
standing 4 feet tall.
Click on the giraffe for a large image. Click on the monkeys for a large image. Click on the deer for a large image. Click on the parrots for a large image.
The 18" muscular tongue of a
giraffe easily plucks leaves
from the trees. They also have
prehensile lips that aid in
browsing.
Like apes, monkeys are divided
into two main groups: the
monkeys of the East known as
Old World monkeys; and those
 in the West, called New World
monkeys.
Deer breed in the fall, and
fawns are born in the spring,
staying with their mothers all
summer. Most male deer have
antlers that are shed and
renewed annually.
The parrot is a seed cracking,
tropical bird. Their are 350
species of parrots including the
macaws, cockatoos, lories,
parakeets, and true parrots.
Some parrots learn to "talk".
Zebras Raccoons & Squirrels Click on the deer for a large image. Click on the geese for a large image.
Click on the zebras for a large image. Click on the raccoon for a large image.
Zebras are shaped like a horse
and possess great speed and
good eyesight. No two zebra
have the same pattern or
stripes.
Raccoons are nocturnal animals
and are easily identified by the
dark mask over its eyes and
ringed tail. Raccoons are found
only in North America.
After a period of feeding, deer
usually bed down in thick
brush, regurgitate food, and
chew their "cud." Deer are
social and often move in herds
dominated by an older female.
As each goose flaps its wings it
creates an "uplift" for the birds
that follow. By flying in a
V-formation, the whole flock
adds 72% greater flying range
than if each bird flew alone.
Click on the zebras for a large image. Click on the raccoon for a large image. Click on the deer for a large image. Click on the golden finches for a large image.
Zebras are water dependent
and will travel many miles when
not available. When necessary,
zebras will even dig for water.
On average, zebras drink about
14 liters of water per day.
Raccoons are often seen
turning over rocks or digging
under logs in search of food. 
Raccoons, when hunting, rely
on their sense of touch more
than eyesight.
For most of the year elk
cows, calves and yearlings
live in loose herds or groups;
and elk bulls in bachelor groups
or alone.
Songbirds make up the largest,
most complex and evolved
group among all birds. Most
songbirds are migratory,
migrating to warmer climates
in the fall and winter.
Click on the zebras for a large image. Click on the squirrel for a large image. Click on the elk for a large image. Click on the scrub jay for a large image.
Other herbivores use their
tongues to feed the grass into
their mouths, but the zebra
use their front teeth. Thus,
zebras graze right down to
the soil level.
Squirrel's belong to the order
"Rodentia". There are over 365
species of squirrels in seven
families. They include the tree
squirrel, ground squirrel, and
flying squirrel.
The moose is a large ruminant
mammal with large flattened
antlers. The moose is the
largest member of the deer
family, and is found in the
woodlands of North America,
mostly in Canada.
A bird song and a bird call are
quite different. Calls are usually
short and used to signal things
such as danger or hunger. Bird
songs are long, complicated
and repetitive. They can often
 continue for hours at a time.
Click on the zebras for a large image. The male tree squirrel takes
twice as long, as the female,
to groom itself. Squirrels are
the cleanest animal in the
rodent family.
