Growing Up

The Teeth

Most mammals develope very quickly and become self pleasing. At 63 days old, kittens are able to fend for themselves. While the young cat is self-sufficient, a human baby is basically helpless. The best behavior of a child is to smile, encouraging affection and handling(and warmth). It takes the baby many more years to become fully independant.

A horse's tail is used to whisk away flies. The Canadian beaver uses their tail for as a rudder when they swim. Armadillo's have tails that are well armored. The tough plates developed from hardened, dead skin.

To stay clean, mammals groom themselves or eachother. The cat, for example, licks its front paw to clean behind the ears. Horses stand side by side to remove lice and ticks.
