When I think of nature I think of animals. For example, I think of pandas, koala bears, and lions. I’m going to talk about pandas, koala bears, and lions in this blog post.

The first animal I’m going to talk about is Panda’s. Panda’s live in the remote mountains of central China. They’re endangered animals, and only have a life-expectancy of 20 years in the wild. Panda’s are omnivores, which means they eat both plants and animals. Panda bears love bamboo, and need twenty-eight pounds of it to satisfy it’s needs. Sometimes they even eat birds and rodents. An interesting fact about Panda’s is that they’re effecient swimmers.

The second animal I’m going to write about is the Koala. Koala’s are pouched animals. That means that they carry their child in their pouch for about six months after the child is born. They live in eastern Australia because that’s where the eucalyptus trees are. Koala’s hardly leave these trees, and sleep up to eighteen hours a day. A lot of the moisture they pick up are from the eucalyptus trees. In fact, they hardly drink any water because of the trees. Koala’s are a threatened species, and they have a herbivore as a diet status.

For the last animal, I’m going to talk about Lion’s. Lion’s are mostly located in sub-Saharan Africa. They are the only cat’s that live in groups called prides. Prides are family units with around three male lions and a dozen lionesses, incliding their young. The male’s protect the territory, while the females are the primary hunters. Lion’s are carnivores, and the lionesses usually hunt down antelopes, zebras, wildebeest, and other large animals for the whole pride. Throughout history the Lion has been celebrated for the courage and strength that they show. They are also a vulnerable species. National Geographic is trying to prevent extinction of big cats with the Big Cats Initiative program.
