* NOTICE *

This web site is dedicated to all the wonderful creatures of the world.Some "animal lovers", like myself may be offended by some of the content on this site,but I assure you I would never intentionally cause or promote harm to any living creature.I have just merely added some humor to this page and if you visit the Meet the Founder page you will learn where the nickname " ROADKILL " came from.Anyways I have created this page for the purpose of educating people about the many different classes of the Animal Kingdom.I will do my best to give information as well as pictures to give you a better understanding of the many different species of animals.Since it will be impossible to supply information and pictures of each and every animal existing today,I will break it down class by class and only give a few examples of each.I hope this site will teach everyone about the animals we share our planet with and to acknowledge all of Gods facinating creatures.

THE CARNIVORES


Carnivores are animals that rely on eating other animals in order to survive.These animals have powerful jaws and teeth which are specialized for biting and tearing.Carnivores must hunt for their food.Some hunt in packs while others hunt alone.Hunting food requires these animals to be sleek,strong,quick,and alert.The senses of these animals are finely tuned. They are the hunting beasts of the animal world. Carnivores are classified under five different groups:the dogs(canids),bears(ursids), raccoons(procyonids),weasels(mustelids),and cats(felids).Below I will supply facts and examples of each group.






The dogs (canids) - Most canids have long legs,a narrow snout, large pointed ears,and a long tail.Canid feet are distinctive.Each has four toes that touch the ground and a prominent rear pad.The pad is not really a heel.The pad is what gives these animals their excellent support while running.Long travel is necessary for these animals to find enough prey for them to survive.Canids hunt animals in an exclusive territory usually in packs.These territories are marked by urine and feces to let other canid packs know that a certain area is already taken.Canid territories are occupied by breeding pairs and their offspring.Here are some examples of canids:Wolves,foxes,and coyotes.Below I have listed a few interesting links to find out more on a specific species.

Wolves

To me the wolf is the most gorgeous and misunderstood animal on the planet.
I would like to dedicate this video to all the wolves in the world.






The bears (ursids) - The ursid group belongs to the largest carnivores that walk on earth,the bears.Bears are stocky,slow moving animals.Their eyes and ears are small in realation to their large heads but are actually far keener than most people believe.Bears also have a very good sense of smell.The sense of smell can be demonstrated in their roaming.While roaming bears often pause to sniff the air for scents of food or intruders.Bears seek foods high in protein and sugars.They can eat up to 90 pounds of food per day and may gain up to 7 pounds per day.Because bears sleep(hibernate)for long periods in the winter their food supplies are seasonal.They must feed almost continuously while food is abundant.Bears mate during spring and the females will give birth in midwinter.Today,with growing numbers of people and shrinking habitats,competition for space between bears and people is more intense than ever.These truly wild animals need all the respect, attention,and living space that management can provide.

The Mustelids (Weasles) - The mustelid group includes animals such as badgers,otters,skunks,and weasels.Most mustelids are small with long slender bodies.These animals tend to possess strenth and endurance.Their legs are short and powerful,and their five-toed feet are adapted for running, digging, climbing, and swimming.Most mustelids have scent glands which are used for defense and marking territory.A good example would be the skunk.

The Cats (Felids) - Members of this group possess keen senses and muscular bodies.The front legs are armed with razor sharp claws while the hind legs provide bursts of speed and the ability to leap.Jaws and teeth are designed to seize,kill,and devour other animals.Felids have the largest and sharpest eyes of all the carnivores.Their night vision is far better than other animals. Felids usually live in rocky areas or areas with dense cover.When felids hunt they stalk and spring upon thier prey.They can kill and overpower animals twice thier size.They usually kill thier prey by inflicting deadly wounds to the neck and throat.Some examples of felids would be the tiger,the bobcat, the lynx,the ocelot,and the mountain lion.

The Procyonids (Raccoons) - Procynids are animals that have ringed tails.They range from the size of a house cat to a medium sized dog.These animals are mainly nocturnal which means they are most active at night.Procyonids will eat almost anything: mice, berries, fish, eggs, insects, fruit, and young rabbits.Examples of procyonids would include: raccoons, ringtails, and coatis.
