Cats have been known to extirpate a bird species within specific regions, a genetic study in concluded that domestic cats are descended from Near Eastern wildcats, having diverged around 8, BC in the Middle East. As of a study, cats are the second most popular pet in the US by number of pets owned, in a study they were ranked the third most popular pet in the UK, after fish and dogs, with around 8 million being owned.
The domestic cat is believed to have evolved from the Near Eastern wildcat, the felids are a rapidly evolving family of mammals that share a common ancestor only 10—15 million years ago and include lions, tigers, cougars and many others. Within this family, domestic cats are part of the genus Felis, members of the genus are found worldwide and include the jungle cat of southeast Asia, European wildcat, African wildcat, the Chinese mountain cat, and the Arabian sand cat, among others.
The domestic cat was first classified as Felis catus by Carl Linnaeus in the 10th edition of his Systema Naturae published inbecause of modern phylogenetics, domestic cats are usually regarded as another subspecies of the wildcat, F.
This has resulted in mixed usage of the terms, as the cat can be called by its subspecies name. Wildcats have also referred to as various subspecies of F. The most common name in use for the cat remains F. Hedgehog — A hedgehog is any of the spiny mammals of the subfamily Erinaceinae, in the Eulipotyphlan family Erinaceidae.
There are seventeen species of hedgehog in five genera, found through parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa, there are no hedgehogs native to Australia, and no living species native to the Americas. Hedgehogs share distant ancestry with shrews, with gymnures possibly being the intermediate link, like many of the first mammals, they have adapted to a nocturnal way of life.
Hedgehogs spiny protection resembles that of the porcupines, which are rodents, and echidnas.
The name hedgehog came into use around the yearderived from the Middle English heyghoge, from heyg, hegge, because it frequents hedgerows, other names include urchin, hedgepig and furze-pig.
The collective noun for a group of hedgehogs is array, hedgehogs are easily recognized by their spines, which are hollow hairs made stiff with keratin. Their spines are not poisonous or barbed and unlike the quills of a porcupine, however, the immature animals spines normally fall out as they are replaced with adult spines. Spines can also shed when the animal is diseased or under extreme stress, a defense that all species of hedgehogs possess is the ability to roll into a tight ball, causing all of the spines to point outwards.
The hedgehogs back contains two large muscles that control the position of the quills, when the creature is rolled into a ball, the quills on the back protect the tucked head, feet, and belly, which are not quilled. Hedgehogs are primarily nocturnal, though some species can also be active during the day, hedgehogs sleep for a large portion of the day under bushes, grasses, rocks, or most commonly in dens dug in the ground, with varying habits among the species.
Hedgehogs occasionally perform a ritual called anointing, when the animal encounters a new scent, it will lick and bite the source, then form a scented froth in its mouth and paste it on its spines with its tongue.
Anointing is sometimes also called anting because of a behavior in birds. In addition, hedgehogs are one of four known mammalian groups with mutations that protect against another snake venom, the olfactory regions have not been thoroughly studied in the hedgehog.
In mammals, the part of the brain is covered by neopallium. This difficulty is not impossible, as it varies from one species to another, tests have suggested that hedgehogs share the same electrical activity as cats.
Although traditionally classified in the now abandoned order Insectivora, hedgehogs are omnivorous and they feed on insects, snails, frogs and toads, snakes, bird eggs, carrion, mushrooms, grass roots, berries, melons and watermelons.
Berries constitute a part of an Afghan hedgehogs diet in early spring after hibernation The origins of the poodles are still discussed with a dispute whether the poodle descends from the old French Barbet breed or from Germany as a type of water dog.
Toy Poodles won Best in Show at Crufts in andStandard Poodles achieved the award in , and The winner came from Norway and was the first overseas exhibit to win the Crufts best in show award, the origin of the poodle is disputed.
Due to the popularity in France, it became established as a national breed. It was the pet dog of the late 18th century in Spain. France had toy poodles as pampered favorites during the reign of Louis XVI at about the same period, the poodle has been bred in at least three sizes, including Standard, Miniature, and Toy.
According to the American Kennel Club, which recognised the breed inthe British Kennel Club also says recognises three sizes, stating that the miniature and toy are scaled down versions of the standard. The smallest, or Toy variety, was developed in England in the 18th century, Miniature and Toy varieties tend to be bred primarily for companionship.
Traditionally the Standard Poodle, the largest of the breed, was a retriever or gun dog, used in particular for duck hunting, the breed has been used for fowl hunting in US and Canada since the early s, in and out of hunting tests. However, in the past 20 years, some breeders in the United States and Canada have been selecting for dogs with drive for birds in order to revive the breed for hunting, with some success.
The Canadian Kennel Club admitted the Standard Poodle for hunting trials inas of Julythe end results of 20 years of breeding to reawaken the hunting instinct have been dogs that are very eager to please their masters. Unlike other spaniels and retrievers, Standard Poodles will attempt to solve a problem independently, during WWII, Roland Kilbon of the New York Sun, reported that other countries had used dogs in their armies for many years Elephant — Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea.
Three species are recognised, the African bush elephant, the African forest elephant, Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Elephantidae is the surviving family of the order Proboscidea, other, now extinct, members of the order include deinotheres, gomphotheres, mammoths. Male African elephants are the largest extant terrestrial animals and can reach a height of 4 m, all elephants have several distinctive features, the most notable of which is a long trunk or proboscis, used for many purposes, particularly breathing, lifting water, and grasping objects.
Their incisors grow into tusks, which can serve as weapons and as tools for moving objects, Elephants large ear flaps help to control their body temperature. Their pillar-like legs can carry their great weight, African elephants have larger ears and concave backs while Asian elephants have smaller ears and convex or level backs. Elephants are herbivorous and can be found in different habitats including savannahs, forests, deserts and they prefer to stay near water.
They are considered to be keystone species due to their impact on their environments, other animals tend to keep their distance from elephants while predators, such as lions, tigers, hyenas, and wild dogs, usually target only young elephants. Females tend to live in groups, which can consist of one female with her calves or several related females with offspring. The groups are led by a known as the matriarch.

Elephants have a society in which multiple family groups come together to socialise. Males leave their family groups when they reach puberty and may live alone or with other males, calves are the centre of attention in their family groups and rely on their mothers for as long as three years.
Elephants can live up to 70 years in the wild and they communicate by touch, sight, smell, and sound, elephants use infrasound, and seismic communication over long distances. Elephant intelligence has been compared with that of primates and cetaceans and they appear to have self-awareness and show empathy for dying or dead individuals of their kind.
African elephants are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature while the Asian elephant is classed as endangered, one of the biggest threats to elephant populations is the ivory trade, as the animals are poached for their ivory tusks. Other threats to elephants include habitat destruction and conflicts with local people. Elephants are used as working animals in Asia, in the past, they were used in war, today, they are often controversially put on display in zoos, or exploited for entertainment in circuses.
Elephants are highly recognisable and have featured in art, folklore, religion, literature Chicken — The chicken is a type of domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the red junglefowl. It is one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meat and their eggs.
From India, the chicken was imported to Lydia in western Asia Minor. In the UK and Ireland adult male chickens over the age of one year are known as cocks, whereas in America, Australia. Males less than a year old are cockerels, females over a year old are known as hens and younger females as pullets although in the egg-laying industry, a pullet becomes a hen when she begins to lay eggs at 16 to 20 weeks of age.
Chicken originally referred to domestic fowl. The species as a whole was then called domestic fowl, or just fowl. This use of chicken survives in the phrase Hen and Chickens, sometimes used as a British public house or theatre name, the word chicken is sometimes erroneously construed to mean females exclusively, despite the term hen for females being in wide circulation. Underneath, he wears a white tank top and shorts. Personality Edit Due to his experience in Vietnam, Wynyard is very nervous and shell-shocked.
He even has a bad case of the shakes from being so jittery. To recover from this problem, he injects himself with drugs that somehow make him less shaky. Wynyard also lives in incredible guilt after his Vietnam commanding officer, Jimsaved his life after he got shot in the leg, but did not go back to save his life when he needed help getting out of a pit; leaving him to die. Role in the Movie Edit Wynyard first appeared as one of the cast members who were singing the theme song during rehearsal.
He was later shown limping over to Trevorhis drug supplier, asking when he's going to get the next shipment of drugs for him. Trevor told Wynyard that it's coming, but the the nervous frog told him that he needs it now so his bad case of the shakes won't interfere with his act.
This began to get on the rat's nerves as he angrily told him, once again, that it's coming. Wynyard then took out some cash to show that he can pay for it, only for Trevor to snatch it out of his hands because he said that it would be enough to cover what he owed him last time. While practicing his knife-throwing act on stage during rehearsal, Wynyard nervously looked at the spinning wheel his assistant was strapped on to.
Without getting his fix, he was worried that his case of the shakes would mess him up. Role in the Movie Edit In Wynyard's story, it was said that Jim saved his life when he got shot in the leg by one of the Vietnamese gophers. As soon as Jim saw his friend laying out in the battlefield yelling for help, he charged on over and brought him back to the home base without getting injured.
Wynyard thanked Jim for saving him, in which he replied by saying, "I wasn't about to see my best buddy peppered with Charlie's lead. As they were walking, Wynyard noticed that Eight-Ball was missing and Jim suggested that they should all go back and look for him.Meet The Feebles (1989) 720p [WIDESCREEN]
They soon found Eight-Ball's head through some bushes, and were very relieved to see him. However, much to their horror, they found out that his head was really impaled on a stick, and then discovered that it was really a trap as the Vietnamese gophers popped out of the bushes and captured them.
