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.

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.
