Living animals in the North Pole
and I'm Matthew
Hello Mrs. Perez and fellow students. Today we are going to present you about the animals that lived in the North Pole... Please sit back and enjoy!
Where is North Pole?
You might think north pole is a big piece of land, but where we live is instead a huge area covering large ice sheets in the Arctic Circle (Arctic Ocean).
We live within these several countries:
Coastal areas of Greenland
Northern Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden and Finland)
and Siberia in northern Russia
We live in the most north place in the world and it is the opposite of the South Pole. Also, we are located on the north hemisphere of the world and 90 degrees N latitude.
By Matthew and Daksham!
That is the Arctic Circle, it is big, isn't it?
These are some of the animals that are more common in North Pole
But remember that there are still a lot more species of animals
Just so you could visualize what the animals we are going to talk about looks like
Most of us, have long and thick fur all over our body. It is half the reason to protect us and provide us more warmth, which also makes a camouflage effect from any other predators, we are, for example the Arctic Foxes, Arctic Hares, Polar bears...
We were really depended on food because without food, we would starve and die. Some of us, the endangered animals were even caused by starvation or even placed in the lowest level of the food chain.
We also depended on necessary shelter to live in and to protect ourselves from storms and from danger.
-They're from 13 to 20 feet (4 to 6.1 meters) in length, and weighing up to about 1.5t.
-Migrate in the winter.
-34 teeth not designed for chewing, but for grabbing and tearing prey and they swallow their prey whole
-Belugas are slow swimmers.
Think about this: What do they mostly have in common?
Most of us spend our days either hunting or taking care of our children and some even train our cubs to hunt and find food then just finding it for them, we also let them try by their own, but usually we hunt as a group.
How does North Pole work
The winter in the North Pole is around −43 °C (−45 °F) to −26 °C (−15 °F) , and about 0 °C (32 °F) in the summer.
The sun, in the North Pole rises earlier and in the summer; but the sun rises later and sets sooner in the winter as the North Pole feels the full impact of the Earth's seasonal tilt away from the sun.
We think that you may be wondering that how do we manage to survive in the arctic where it is -40 degrees c? Well if you watch closer of how we walk, you would see that our fur moves along with our body that it is because we have a layer of flubber which is more then 2 in. or 3 cm thick , it protects us in the cold and if we did not have that, we would be dead in less then 3 minutes!!
Male (boars) weigh about 500kg (772-1,433 lb.)
and are about 2.5 to 3 m (8.2-9.8 ft.) long.
Females (sows) weight about 250 kg (331-551 lb.) and are 2 to 2.5 m (6.6-8.2 ft.) long.
Dependent on sea ice and also seals for food.
They are carnivores so these bears hunt for seals all day long!
They have body parts that help them keep warm.
- Thicker fur providing extra heat
- Fur under feet to increase friction to ice
They are severely endangered because some of them died from starvation and that they became homeless from global warming
These bear' scientific names are Ursus Maritimus.
Adults hunt all day too in pods, they eat 3-4% of their own body weight everyday!
They inhabit all oceans around the world
Lived beside the shallow waters and huddled together as a herd as their habitat
The blubber layer beneath is up to 15 cm (5.9 in) thick.
Small groups known as pods, they feed on fish, crustaceans, and worms.
Adult beluga will eat about 2.5% to 3% of its body weight per day of food a day same as females
They ate fishes, birds, squids and other marine animals
The scientific name is Monodon Monoceros
Dear Matthew and Daksham,
Can you tell us about the North Pole and what are some of the animals that live there.
621 (Brain-pop format... aka the inquiry question)
Well, lets first have a background knowledge of where the North Pole is! In an animal's perspective
Delphinapterus leucas is their scientific name
The females usually measure 162–205 cm (64–81 in) in length and weigh 80–120 kg (180–260 lb). The males (or "bulls") are typically larger, measuring 180–214 cm (71–84 in) in length and usually weighing 159–182 kg (350–400 lb) Size: 4-5 ft Weight: 500+ lb
These elk-like mammals which searched for mosses and lichens.
They migrate in the winter form Arctic to Subarctic in about 600 miles migration to keep warm in the winter even though they had the ability to prevent the cold.
They have big hoofs that help them dig through the snow covered ground and search for suitable food, they are also one of those animals which are colour blind
They are herbivores but they have a huge diet, about 5kg of well, plants every day.
Scientific name for them is Rangifer tarandus
They live up to 25-30 years
They are severely endangered too
Odobenus rosmarus is their scientific binomial name
Males (bulls) are about 10-12 ft., Females (cows) are about 8-9 ft. Bulls weigh about 2 tons, Cows weigh over 1 ton.
They have a bulky layer of skin to provide extra warmth and two long tusks either to defend from polar bears or pulling itself over the slippery ice.
Most of us are endangered currently because your, human activity and the greenhouse effect, global warming! Therefore we sometimes even die because we become homeless
Seasons change, the fox's coat turns as well, adopts a brown or gray appearance
They are omnivores and they will also eat vegetables when they are available.
Arctic Foxes are about measures 3 - 3.5 feet in length from head
to tail meters tall The arctic foxes weighs 6.5 to 17 pounds
Head and body, 18 to 26.75 in (46 to 68 cm); tail, up to 13.75 in (35 cm
43 to 70 cm (17 to 28 in) long. They have a tail length of 4.5–10 cm (1.8–3.9 in) They weigh 2.5–5.5 kg (6–12 lb.) and that large specimens can weigh up to 7 kg (15 lb.)
The scientific name for the Arctic Hare is the Lepus Arcticus
and they feed in food that are mostly willow, (leaves, barks, shoots, roots and etc.)
They have white fur to blend in the snow from predators
They hop around in the snow
They spend most of their days looking for food and shelter
They mostly lived on land and sometimes water
-1.7 to 2.0 m (5 to 6 feet) long and weigh from 140 to 190 kg (300 to 400 pounds).
-Fish, including halibut, redfish, capelin, cod and herring
They mostly spend all day taking care of their young.
They are carnivorous mammals
Have furry soles, short ears, and short muzzle
Arctic foxes will follow the region's premier predator, a polar bear to eat the leftover scraps from its kills.
Now lets talk about the animal that live there, and how they are. In a tourist' perspective.
They are Omnivorous mammals, that they eat other smaller mammals and their eggs
There are 13 to 20 ft (4 to 6.1 m) big and they weigh about 1.8 t but females were just slightly smaller
Feed on squids, fishes, flatfishes and other marine animals
Live up to 20-30 years
Walruses prefer mollusks and other benthic creatures for their meals
The arctic seal diet is Crab, shrimp, octopus, jellyfish, plankton, and squid are some of their favorites. Baby seals drink milk from their mothers.
live up to 20 years
They swim slowly in pods in the Arctic waters
They have a 2m long tusk which are actually not for hunting that it is also a mystery for scientists
They are migratory and prefer to stay above the surface of the water, but can also dive down to 5,000 ft.
And there are also some to support them when swimming.
- long neck with narrow skull for streamlining
- strong arms for paddling
Both males and females are about 23 to 32 ft big (7 to 9.7 m) and that they could weigh up to around 6 tons (5,443 kg)
They live up to a range of 30- 60 years
They are one of the most intelligent mammals in the world and they catch prey with their variety of strategies, usually in pods like other whales
These dolphin like whales are called Orcinus Orca in their scientific name
There are different types of seals in the North Pole and that this is Harp Seal
They can live up to 50 years
Thank you to...
en.wikipedia.org/wiki (for scientific names and some pics)
- A female polar bear can already have a baby when she is five
- A baby polar bear born is no bigger than a rat
- The belugas can nod their head in any direction
- Caribou are the only species of deer that both sexes have antlers
- In Latin the walrus scientific name is called the 'tooth-walking sea-horse'
- If a person or a prey is in the middle of a pod of whales (mentioned), it will get totally stunned by the sound they make
- Orcas can flip their 8 t bodies in the air, front-flip or back-flip both fine.
- Killer whales are known as whales, but they are considered as dolphins.
- Narwhals are known as the legendary, underwater unicorns!
- The discovery of the tusk on narwhals lips are still mysterious.
Before finishing off... We would like to show you a fascinating video (Matthew thinks so)
A proof of the intelligence of the orcas
What do you think about the presentation, ready for some cool facts? Yes, okay!
These snowy white foxes are called Vulpes lagopus in their scientific name
Thank you very much for participating in our presentation and I hope you enjoyed it and liked it! :)
