Hi. I’m Leo the African Lion

My Biome: Found in south Africa and middle Africa in the grasslands or savannas

  • ~~Fun Facts About Me!~~

  • Size relative to a 6-ft (2-m) man

  • My weight can be and where from 265 to 420 lbs (120 to 191 kg)

  • Scientific Name: Pantheraleo

  • Lions reach sexual maturity at 2 years old and mate at all times of the year. The gestation period is 102-112 days which usually results in 2 to 5 cubs.

  • Lions are social and territorial animals who live in family groups called prides

  • Diet: Carnivorous, mainly mammals from giraffes to buffalo, deer and carrion

  • Special Features: Lions are unique among cats in that the male can be easily distinguished from the female (lioness) because he possesses a mane of hair. As in most cats, the eyes are adapted for seeing at night when they do a lot of hunting. The claws can be retracted in sheaths to prevent them getting blunted when walking across the savannah, which they can do almost noiselessly on soft pads.

Camel

Fun Facts about me!

Camels are about seven feet (2.1 meters) tall (measured to the shoulder). They weigh up to 1500 lbs (700kg). They live 40 to 50 yearsDiet: Branches, leaves, shrubs, grasses.Predators: Wolves, tigers, lionsScientific Name: CamelusA camel's hump does not store water. It stores fat, lessening heat-trapping insulation around the rest of the body.One reason camels can go long periods without water is the shape of their red blood cells. These are oval and so will flow when they are dehydrated rather than clumping, as ours do. The camel is the only mammal to have oval red blood cells.

Mike the Monkey

My Biome is the Tropical Rain Forest. Baboons are found in Savannas and Grasslands.

  • There are currently 264 known monkey species.

  • Monkeys can be divided into two groups, Old World monkeys that live in Africa and Asia, and New World monkeys that live in South America.\

  • A baboon is an example of an Old World monkey, while a marmoset is an example of a New World monkey.

  • The Pygmy Marmoset is the smallest type of monkey, with adults weighing between 120 and 140 grams.

  • The Mandrill is the largest type of monkey, with adult males weighing up to 35 kg.

  • Spider monkeys get their name because of their long arms, legs and tail.

  • The monkey is the 9th animal that appears on the Chinese zodiac, appearing as the zodiac sign in 2016.


Kangaroos

My Biome is:

There are about 60 different species of kangaroo in Australia, and they each have unique adaptations for different biomes. Different species can live in all parts of Australia. Kangaroos live in a variety of climates ranging from sub-Alpine to savanna grassland to temperate bushland and coastal heath. Some varieties of kangaroos seem to enjoy swimming, whilst others are just as happy in the dry mulga scrub. Tree kangaroos live in tropical rainforest biomes.

Many larger species of kangaroos such as the red kangaroo, commonly said to live in the desert, cannot survive in the sandy desert at all. There is insufficient food or water for them to survive. However, they can certainly live in semi-arid areas where there are permanent waterholes, and where the vegetation is soft and juicy enough for them to eat.

Kangaroos

  • Kangaroos are herbivores, and they eat a wide variety of plants, including grasses, shrubs, tree leaves and shoots. Ecologically, kangaroos are Australia's equivalent of bison, deer and cattle in North America.

  • Species: Macropusrufus (Red Kangaroo), Macropusfuliginosus (Western Grey Kangaroo), Macropusgiganteus (Eastern Grey Kangaroo), Macropusantilopinus (Antilopine Kangaroo)

  • A kangaroo can grow to between 3 and 8 feet (1 to 3 meters) tall, and they can weigh between 40 and 200 pounds (18 to 100 kilograms), depending on the species. The Eastern Gray Kangaroo is the heaviest marsupial in the world, and the Red Kangaroo is the largest.

  • When a kangaroo senses danger, it alerts others by loudly thumping its feet on the ground.

  • Kangaroos are marsupials, a sub-type of mammal that is distinguished by the fact that it gives birth to relatively undeveloped young that develop further in their mother's pouch.

Alligators

An Alligator skull and a human

Skull.

Alligators are opportunistic feeders. Their diets include prey species that are abundant and easily accessible. Juvenile alligators eat primarily insects, amphibians, small fish, and other invertebrates. Adult alligators eat rough fish, snakes, turtles, small mammals, and birds.

Female alligators rarely exceed 9 feet in length, but males can grow much larger. The Florida state record for length is a 14 foot 3-1/2 inch male from Lake Washington in Brevard County. The Florida record for weight is a 1,043 pound (13 feet 10-1/2 inches long) male from Orange Lake in Alachua County. FWC biologists have published an article on the maximum size of the alligator.

REPRODUCTION: Nearly all alligators become sexually mature by the time they reach approximately 7 feet in length although females can reach maturity at 6 feet. A female may require 10-15 years and a male 8-12 years to reach these lengths. Courtship begins in early April, and mating occurs in May or June. Females build a mound nest of soil, vegetation, or debris and deposit an average of 32 to 46 eggs in late June or early July. Incubation requires approximately 60-65 days, and hatching occurs in late August or early September.
