The Seahorse

In my point of view I clearly think that seahorse's are very unique animals.

Unlike other animals they mate for life and they are also monogomous.

Saying that seahorse's are one of the few animals on earth where the male seahorse bears the unborn young.

Seahorse's are relatives to the pipefish. They can range in size from 0.6 inches ( 1.5 centimeters ) to 14 inches ( 35 centimeters ) long.

I think seahorses are very spectacular animals and very interesting animals.


Ring Tailed Lemur

Type:Mammal
Diet:Herbivore
Average life span in the wild:Up to 18 years
Size:Head and body, 17.75 in (45 cm); tail, 21.75 in (55 cm)
Weight:5 to 7.5 lbs (2.3 to 3.4 kg)
Group name:Troop

Size relative to a 6-ft (2-m) man:

Ring Tailed Lemurs are only found on the African Island of Madagascar, they can also be found on some other small islands nearby. Madagascar is a place where there are animals that can be found no where else on the earth.

Ring Tailed Lemurs have vividly stripe, black and white tails that are very long. They are also exhibits at many zoo's around the world.

Lemurs use their hands and feet to move through trees, but they can not grip with their tails. Ring Tailed Lemurs may also spend a fair amount of time on the ground, which I think is very unusual.

Ring Tailed Lemurs eat alot of fruit which is a main part of their diet. Although they do eat a few other things aswell apart from fruit, they eat flowers, leaves, tree bark and sap.

Ring Tailed Lemurs have an odur that they can use to communicate and also be used as a weapon at the same time.

Lemurs also mark there own territory by their scent. During mating season lemurs tend to battle by out stinking each other.

Ring Tailed Lemurs tend to live in groups called Troops. Did you know that this Troop may contain 6 to 30 Lemurs, but it tends to be only 17 in the group. In these troups it is not just males there are also females aswell.

Ring Tailed Lemurs are endangered.


Hayyy guys today I am going to be talking to you about the amazing animal the giraffe!

The Giraffe!
The giraffe to me is a very interesting animal, the main feature I love about it is the giraffes long neck.
In the giraffes neck there a only 7 bones, can you believe that!
The male giraffe can grow to a height of five and a half metres tall.
The female giraffe can only grow to a small height of 5 metres tall.
DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE ARE A WHOPPING NINE DIFFERENT BREEDS OF GIRAFFES.
Also Giraffes have horns on the top of their head called Ossicones.
The giraffes skin is blotched in yellow and brown spots.
The different species of giraffes have different patterns of skin.
Habitat:

Giraffes are found in different parts of Africa. You will mainly find Giraffes In the Savannah Grassland.
They DO NOT live in thick forest's, because it is easy for them not to see dark predators approaching.
The giraffes live in groups called herds although they do not stay together all there life, they come and go.

Feeding:
Giraffes eat mostly leaves.
The Giraffes tounge are a big advantage to them when they are eating.
DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE TOUNGES ARE 40 TO 50CM LONG...........
DO YOU KNOW WHY THE TOUNGE IS BLACK?
Well the tounge is black so it does not get sunburnt when it is out of the mouth ( while eating)
