Animals are a major group of mostly multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia or Metazoa. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their life. Most animals are motile, meaning they can move spontaneously and independently. All animals are also heterotrophs, meaning they must ingest other organisms for sustenance.
The dog is a domesticated form of the gray wolf, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. The term is used for both feral and pet varieties. The domestic dog has been the most widely kept working, hunting and companion animal in human history. The word “dog” may also mean the male of a canine species, as opposed to the word “bitch” for the female of the species
Nomad tribe of Bushmen is on the hot Kalahari Desert – in the company of tame cheetah. Although by nature they are killers, these big cats is surprisingly easy to tame. Photos of animals taken in Wildlife Naankuse in Namibia. They were educated people, after their mother was shot dead by poachers five years ago. As a result, three cheetahs – a male and two females with joy rushing to their masters, the people of the tribe of Bushmen, on a daily three-hour walk through the desert.
The lion is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera, and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia with a critically endangered remnant population in Gir Forest National Park in India, having disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene, about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. They were found in most of Africa, across Eurasia from western Europe to India, and in the Americas from the Yukon to Peru
Wildlife photography is regarded as one of the more challenging forms of photography. As well as needing sound technical skills, such as being able to expose correctly, wildlife photographers generally need good field craft skills. For example, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal’s behaviour is needed in order to be able to predict their actions. Photographing some species may require stalking skills or the use of a hide/blind for concealment. While wildlife photographs can be taken using basic equipment, successful photography of some types of wildlife requires specialist equipment, such as macro lenses for insects, long focal length lenses for birds and underwater cameras for marine life. However, since the advent of digital cameras, greater adventure travel and automated cameras, a great wildlife photograph can also be the result of being in the right place at the right time.
The cheetah is an atypical member of the cat family that is unique in its speed, while lacking strong climbing abilities. The species is the only living member of the genus Acinonyx. It is the fastest land animal, reaching speeds between 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph) in short bursts covering distances up to 460 m (1,510 ft), and has the ability to accelerate from 0 to 103 km/h (64 mph) in three seconds, faster than most supercars. Recent studies confirm the cheetah’s status as the fastest land animal. The cheetah has unusually low genetic variability and a very low sperm count and motility, and deformed flagella. Skin grafts between unrelated cheetahs illustrate this point in that there is no rejection of the donor skin. It is thought that the species went through a prolonged period of inbreeding following a genetic bottleneck during the last ice age. It probably evolved in Africa during the Miocene epoch (26 million to 7.5 million years ago), before migrating to Asia
Lion king of the animals in many opinions, he is strong, fast, tricky and among the top predators in the animal kingdom .. Do not be afraid to attack and several times larger and stronger prey by themselves, and do not give up so easily from the victim .. As can be seen from the attached e disregards the absolutely anything and not let the victim as long as possible .. This buffalo was lucky how hard it was able to divert lava zakačenog up to a platoon of vehicles on the highway …
The concept of ugliness is really a big word and thought. Ugliness of the world have tried many minds to define and there are still uncertainties about the word. Ugly people, ugly animals all that man could accept but to certain limits. This wonder of nature greatly exceeds that limit. I uglier creature I saw in my life. This is the ugliest cat in the world. I do not know really which race belongs to and whether this can be described as a monster race. But there are people who own some flaws conceal a variety of natural wonders such as this one ugly cat. Personally, I’d be more afraid to wake up and see this creature next to my bed.
The cat, also known as the domestic cat or housecat to distinguish it from other felines and felids, is a small furry domesticated carnivorous mammal that is valued by humans for its companionship and for its ability to hunt vermin and household pests. Cats have been associated with humans for at least 9,500 years, and are currently the most popular pet in the world. Owing to their close association with humans, cats are now found almost everywhere on Earth.
