Question:for a science exam, i have to be able identify different physical features of the 4 main types of animals and use them to determine what each type feeds upon. even a list of the different types of animals [that vary in feeding habbits] will be helpful thanks!

Answers:are there only 4 main types of animals? someone gave mammals, birds, fish, reptiles... but that leaves out the marsupials.

Question:What are the differences between the digestive system of a herbivore, carnivore and a primarily nector feeding animal??? I mainly need to know stuff about nector eaters, so that would be really helpful. THanks :)

Answers:length Herbiovres have a comparatively longer digestive system than omnivores and carnivores in order to digest the plant matieral ( and in particular cellulose). carnivores have the shortest in comparison as meat is more easily digested and does not need to be long. I beleive a nector eating one is even shorter....i think this is becasue the nectar is already sugars ( which is what a lot of our food has to be broken into to be small enough to be absorbed into the small intestine).....these sugars are easily absorbed into the body......Don't quote me on this, but I have a feeling this is correct.

Question:

Answers:CARNIVORES The largest group of carnivores are mammals, which include the cat family (wild cats, lions, leopards, tigers and domestic cats) and the dog family (wolves, foxes, jackals, wild dogs and domestic dogs). They are hunters and can only eat once they have caught their prey (not the domestic dog). Carnivores hear and smell well and have strong, pointed jaws to snap at their prey and tear off chunks of flesh easily. Their eyes are situated in the front of their heads, so they can focus well and judge distance very accurately. They also have strong legs that enable them to be fast and agile when chasing their prey. They can run fast for long distances, without tiring. Carnivores are found everywhere: on land in the sea among birds and in the insect world Carnivores are predators. They hunt and eat other animals to survive. Mammals that are carnivores have sharp teeth adapted for ripping meat from a carcass. Carnivores like the wolf have large, powerful jaws that help bring down large animals like deer. The bobcat and cougar have powerful paws with sharp claws that help them catch prey. HERBIVORES Herbivores have teeth adapted to chewing plants. Their big molars are designed to help them grind up leaves, seeds and twigs. They eat seed-pods, grass, leaves and vegetables. They do not eat meat and therefore do not hunt. Instead, they are hunted by carnivores. Their bodies are adapted to suit their way of life and feeding habits. They have large ears and can hear exceptionally well. Some of them have stripes (e.g. kudu, nyala, zebra, etc.) to camouflage themselves. Many carnivores only see shades of grey, black and white. As carnivores do not distinguish between colours, kudu and other buck can remain safe while they stand quite still when danger threatens. Most plant-eaters have very good eye-sight, with the eyes set at the sides of the head, which gives them a wide field of vision. They also have a good sense of smell. Herbivores (e.g. kudu, rabbits, hares, locusts, springbuck, sheep, etc.) are constantly on guard against danger! 0MNIVORES Omnivores eat a variety of foods, including meat and vegetables. Baboons, rats, cockroaches and people are all examples of omnivores. They normally have small ears and eyes set in the front of their heads.

Question:Can you please give me your feeding schedules for your 9-month-old? I'm not asking for opinions on my, etc. I just want to see several different schedules and what your are feeing your little one. I will list our current schedule below. I am trying to take out 1 of the bottles and add more foods. My baby is just starting table foods, and is learning to chew. I am trying to figure out how to incorporate more of those foods as well. Thanks. 8am: Bottle -6oz, cereal, baby food fruit 11am: Bottle-6oz 2pm: Bottle-4oz, cereal with 2oz formula, baby food fruit or veggie 5 pm: Bottle-6oz 6:30pm: Baby food veggie, Baby food meat 8:30pm: Bottle 6oz Thanks. I am not a rigid schedule follower. We use it as a guide. I was actually thinking of taking out the 11am bottle and making that a snack. Anyways, I would really appreciate it if anyone could list their actual schedules as I did above. Thanks.

Answers:here's my 9-mo.-old daughter's schedule: 7:00 a.m. -- 6 oz. formula 8:00 a.m. -- cereal/fruit/yogurt/etc. 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. -- nap 11:30 a.m. -- 6 oz. formula 12:00 noon -- veggies/protein/fruit 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. -- nap 3:30 p.m. -- juice + 6 oz. formula 5:00 p.m. -- bath 5:30 p.m. -- veggies/protein/fruit 7:00 p.m. -- 7 oz. formula 7:30 p.m. -- bedtime so far this schedule has been working out great and is consistent with the 3-meal-a-day-plus-snacks plan, closely resembling an average adult's schedule. until she switches to one nap, the current times of her morning and afternoon naps are also ideal. if you haven't already, try reading dr. marc weissbluth's "healthy sleep habits, happy child" book. it talks about biological sleep times (when it's easiest for kids/adults to fall asleep). figure that out and then coordinating feeding times around naps/bedtime becomes a cinch. btw, i find that organic baby food tastes much better than non-organic. so it may be something to keep in mind if you plan to increase your baby's intake of solids... hope that helps. good luck!

Strange Animals: Strange Fish :An oarfish can easily be mistaken for a sea serpent, but they are really the longest bony fish in the sea, growing to fifty feet or more in length. The longest oarfish alive according to the Guinness Book of World Records is 36 feet in length. Oarfish are rare but found worldwide in tropical and temperate waters at depths from the surface to 3000 feet. Not much is known about their habits and life cycles, but they probably only come to the surface when injured or dying. They feed on very small fish, shrimp, and other invertebrates that they filter through their toothless mouths. Oarfish have shiny, silvery bodies, bright red crests on their heads, and are also known as ribbon fish.
