Grey Wolf

Snow leopard

My animal's name is Grey Wolf. It lives in Alaska, Northern Wisconsin, Northern Michigan, Western Montana, Northern Idaho... It’s canines with long bushy tails that are often black-tipped. Coat color is typically a mix of gray and brown with buffy facial markings. My animal prefer eat large hoofed mammals such as deer, elk, bison and moose.

Snow leopard prefer to inhabit steep cliff areas, rocky outcrops and ravines. Such habitats provide them with the camouflage they need to ambush unsuspecting prey. They stalktheir prey and usually spring from distance of 20­50 feet. Their long and powerful hindlimbs help snow leopards leap up to 30 feet, which is 6 times their body lenght. It's matingseason takes places between January and mid­March. Gestation lasts between 3­31/2months. The litter size is between 2­3 cubs. My animal eats blue sheep, Argaly wildsheep, ibex, marmots, pikas and hares. The biggest predator is human. Hunting, habitatloss and retaliatory killings are the main reasons this big cat is now listed as an endangered species. WWF's work focuses on reducing human­leopard conflict and ruraldevelopment, education for sustainable development, stopping mining in fragile snowleopard habitat, and the control of the illegal wildlife trade.

The name a species is crocodylus actutus. It measures about 2.5 m long, the Weight varies, being approximately 90 kilos. They have a tail that is 30% of their body length.Their bellies are different to the body color, ranging from yellow to gray and white. Breeding occurs in rainy weather in early summer. They build nests in vegetation near water and branches. Mothers placed 15 to 40 eggs and incubation can last about 13 weeks. They were protected in the United States, but many were killed by hunters and their skins were brought to Europe to be sent back to the United States like crocodile.
