  • Animal Life By Stacy Forgacs
    • Gray Wolf

    Black Bear Cheetah Ah, Ha Sources
  • Ah, Ha
    • To be honest, I probably would have missed the questions if I were taking this myself. I thought that it was interesting that Cheetahs do not roar. I also assumed that gray wolves were always gray because that is what they are called. The other information I have on here was interesting as well.
    Main Menu
  • True or false? Gray wolves fur is always Gray.
    • True
    False
  • Correct!!!
    • “ Fur coloration varies greatly, running from gray to gray-brown, all the way through the canine spectrum of white, red, brown, and black. These colors tend to mix in many populations to form predominantly blended individuals, though it is not uncommon for an individual or an entire population to be entirely one color (usually all black or all white).” (Wikipedia, 2010)

  • Did you know?
    • “ Gray wolves can measure anywhere from 1.3 to 2 meters (4.3 to 6.6 ft) from nose to the tip of the tail, which itself accounts for approximately one quarter of overall body length” (Wikipedia, 2010)
    • “ The gestation period lasts between 60 and 63 days. The pups, which weigh about 0.5-kilogram (1 lb) at birth, are born blind, deaf, and completely dependent on their mother. The average litter size is 5–6 pups…” (Wikipedia, 2010)

  • Black bear’s diet is:
    • 85% vegetation
    25% vegetation
  • Oops Wrong!
    • “ Up to 85% of the black bear's diet consists of vegetation, though they tend to feed on softer vegetation than brown bears, eating far less roots, bulbs, corms and tubers than the latter species. Young shoots from trees and bushes during the spring period are important to black bears emerging from hibernation, as they assist in rebuilding muscle and strengthening the skeleton. During this period, they may also raid the nut caches of squirrels. Black bears are fond of honey, and will gnaw through trees if hives are too deeply set into the trunks for them to reach them with their paws. Once the hive is breached, black bears will scrape the honeycombs together with their paws and eat them, regardless of stings.” (Wikipedia, 2010)
    What else?
  • Right On!!!

  • Bear/Human interaction:
    • “ Black bears rarely attack when confronted by humans, and usually limit themselves to making mock charges, emitting blowing noises and swatting the ground with their forepaws.” (Wikipedia, 2010)
    • “ Unlike grizzlies, female black bears do not display the same level of protectiveness to their cubs, and will seldomly attack humans in their vicinity. ” (Wikipedia, 2010)
    • “ Winnie the Pooh was named after Winnipeg, a female black bear cub that lived at London Zoo from 1915 until her death in 1934.” (Wikipedia,2010)

  • The Cat’s Meow
    • Can the cheetah roar?
    Yes No
  • Bulls Eye!!! “ The cheetah cannot roar, but does have the following vocalizations: Chirping - When cheetahs attempt to find each other, or a mother tries to locate her cubs, it uses a high-pitched barking called chirping. The chirps made by a cheetah cub sound more like a bird chirping, and so are termed chirping . Churring or stuttering - This vocalization is emitted by a cheetah during social meetings. A churr can be seen as a social invitation to other cheetahs, an expression of interest, uncertainty, or appeasement or during meetings with the opposite sex (although each sex churrs for different reasons). Growling - This vocalization is often accompanied by hissing and spitting and is exhibited by the cheetah during annoyance, or when faced with danger. Yowling - This is an escalated version of growling, usually displayed when danger worsens. Purring - This is made when the cheetah is content, usually during pleasant social meetings (mostly between cubs and their mothers). A characteristic of purring is that it is realised on both egressive and ingressive airstream. A purring cheetah can be heard on Robert Eklund's Ingressive Speech website or on Robert Eklund's Wildlife page .” (Wikipedia,2010) More Info

  • On the hunt.
    • “ The cheetah has an average hunting success rate of around 50% - half of its chases result in failure.” (Wikipedia, 2010)
    • “ Adaptations that enable the cheetah to run as fast as it does include large nostrils that allow for increased oxygen intake, and an enlarged heart and lungs that work together to circulate oxygen efficiently. During a typical chase its respiratory rate increases from 60 to 150 breaths per minute” (Wikipedia, 2010)
