Maned wolf – rare animal

A wolf with a mane that adorns its neck and shoulders and resembles not so much the mane of a lion as much as a horse is a real decoration of the animal world. This predator lives in South America – for the most part in the savannas, but it is also found in the pampas, in the high grass of the marshes, which are many in the territories of Northern Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil. This wild animal is very similar to a huge fox: it has a bright red hair, the same sly elongated muzzle, high ears. The wolf is light, lean: about one and a half meters long, as tall as a small dog – seventy, seventy-five centimeters at the withers, and weighs not so much as wolves of the northern hemisphere – only about twenty kilograms.
His legs are excellent, extremely long, which helps this rare animal to look out for prey, hiding in the grass of the swamp or savanna, and it is always very high there. Only here such “photo-model” legs do not help him to run fast and long. Continue reading

Wolves and dogs: degree of kinship between wild and domestic animals

Zoologists and cynologists are more than confident that the characteristics of an animal as a result of artificial selection can change extremely quickly and beyond recognition – by instinct, by character, by exterior. External signs for zoologists mean, for example, a lot – and color, and the length of the muzzle, and the location of the ears, and the shape of the eyes. Breeds of animals – both wild and domestic – are extremely diverse, and therefore the search for canine ancestors without the latest research methods would be futile. Continue reading

Why a cat breathes with an open mouth

Like any other mammal, a cat can sometimes use its mouth to get oxygen. This can occur for physiological reasons. For example, in a stuffy room, an open mouth in a cat is a natural way to lower body temperature. Breathing through the mouth will be the norm, if the animal has received a strong physical exertion. When the cat returns to a state of rest, her state will quickly recover. Continue reading
