Leopard of the Future

  1. 1. Leopards 21 st Century Group Number: Period 2
  2. 2. What is the Scientific name? <ul><li>The scientific name for the Leopard is Panthera pardus. </li></ul><ul><li>It belongs to the cat family. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Where does it live? <ul><li>Found in  Africa as far north as the Sahara, and in Asia from Turkey to Korea and Java. </li></ul><ul><li>The leopard can adapt to any type of habitat that provides it with sufficient food and cover. </li></ul><ul><li>Found in every type of forest, savannah, grassland, thin bush and semi desert. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Lifestyle of a Leopard <ul><li>The leopard are fierce predators. </li></ul><ul><li>Depending on the region, leopards may mate all year round or seasonally during January to February. </li></ul><ul><li>The estrous cycle lasts about 46 days and the female usually is in heat for 6–7 days. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Adaption to their Environment <ul><li>Communicate using via visual marking; scratch trees and make scrape marks in the dirt by raking with their hind feet. </li></ul><ul><li>Their fur and skin keeps them warm in winter. </li></ul><ul><li>Their black marks on their body help them camouflage at night so they can either catch their prey or hide from fierce animals </li></ul>
  6. 6. Adaptation To Their Environment Continued… <ul><li>They are killed by lions or crocodiles but starvation is the biggest problem. </li></ul><ul><li>They maintain their rights to these area primarily by scent marking. </li></ul><ul><li>They urine mostly near trail intersections or road junctions so when the leopard needs to head back home they just smell their urine. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Environment
  8. 8. 21 st Organism’s Descendent The Leopis
  9. 9. Its Way of Living <ul><li>The leopard grew more fur to support itself during the ice age. Due to the change in the environment the leopard grew sharper and longer teeth so it can catch more prey. </li></ul><ul><li>The Leopis can be found in places in North Europe or in the far North part of Europe. </li></ul><ul><li>Instead of the leopard being in hot climates, like in the forests, the Leopis are now adapted to snow, rain, hail, strong winds, and a colder environment. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Lifestyle of the Leopis <ul><li>Since the Leopis has doubled its size unlike the leopard, it is now only able to produce one cub at a time. </li></ul><ul><li>The Leopis interact with each other by making loud growls or noises, because of how big and fierce they have become. </li></ul><ul><li>The Leopis interact with other species by attacking them or making a dirty remarks or attempts to hurt them </li></ul>
  11. 11. The Adaption's <ul><li>It has adapted to its climate by having more skin and fur on them. It makes them capable to survive during the ice age. </li></ul><ul><li>The leopards still like before stalks their prey and at the last minute pounce on its prey and strangle its throat with a quick bite. </li></ul>

  13. 13. The Environment
  15. 15. Environment <ul><li>The leopis is found in the northern part of Europe. During the Ice Age. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Major Changes <ul><li>5 million years the world entered a time of ice age and the humans are extinct. </li></ul><ul><li>Most of the rainforests have disappeared. </li></ul><ul><li>Now there are more volcanic eruptions going on and those are producing the greenhouse effect. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Major Changes <ul><li>At 100 million years the water covered much of the world and wherever there was a little land those places are swamps. </li></ul><ul><li>Mostly there were rainforests everywhere. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Major Changes <ul><li>At 200 million years the world slowly drifted the continents together into one big continent, and most of the world is covered by ocean. </li></ul>
  19. 19. Adaption to the Changing Environmental Conditions <ul><li>In 5 million years the leopard grew more fur on its body to keep itself warm from the cold weather during the ice age. </li></ul><ul><li>Since most of the other organisms also grew big like the leopard the leopis produced longer and sharper teeth to help it catch more prey. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Adaption to the Changing Environmental Conditions <ul><li>In 100 million years the leopard grew smaller and produced fish like fins. </li></ul><ul><li>The leopard lives in swamps and isn’t capable of living in the water for more than 1 week it has to occasionally come up on land. </li></ul><ul><li>The leopard by now has lost all of it’s fur. </li></ul>
  21. 21. Adaption to the Changing Environmental Conditions <ul><li>In 200 million years the leopard fully became like a fish. </li></ul><ul><li>The leopard grew bigger fins and was able to live in water for as long as they can. </li></ul><ul><li>The leopard still has sharp teeth to take a big bite of it’s prey. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Transitional Forms <ul><li>The transitional forms or other descendents of our 21st century organism looked kind’ ve like fish but with whiskers and big teeth. </li></ul><ul><li>Also they have lost all of their fur and they can’t live very long in water. </li></ul><ul><li>Their legs have turned into almost fish like fins. </li></ul>
