Nebraska Wildlife:
Mammals Mohave Ground
Squirrels Mohave Ground Squirrels-
spermophilus mohavensis is their
scientific name-live mostly in the
California desert. They range from
Los Angeles to San Bernardino
in California. By Kaylyn
Weilage Also, Mohave Ground squirrels are omnivores because they eat both plants and meat. The squirrel is mostly prey, but is a predator to insects. Red Fox The red fox's scientific name is vulpes vulpes. They are carnivores because they eat meat. The red fox is a predator, because it eats other animals. It is also prey because owls and hawks will eat the red fox when they have the chance. The red fox lives in many environments, such as deserts and forests. Red Fox--Continued Florida Panther Florida Panthers live in both wetlands and grasslands. It is strictly a carnivore, because it eats only meat. Their scientific name is puma concolor coryi. The Florida Panther is a predator. Florida Panther-
Continued Among some of interesting facts about the Florida panther is the fact that it sometimes grabs its prey around the neck or throat and
suffocates it and then eats it. The Florida
panther prefers this way rather than eating it
alive. American Black
Bear The American black bear's scientific name is ursus americanus. It is found in tree-covered areas and meadows. That bear is an omnivore and it eats mainly fish, nuts, buds, twigs, berries, honey, and bees. The American Black
Bear-Continued The American black bear is a predator because it hunts small mammals such as mice and rats. It also eats snakes and sometimes birds. The Arctic Hare The arctic hare - its scientific name is lepus arcticus - lives in the tundra and rocky mountainous areas. It is a herbivore because it eats mostly woody plants such as willow twigs and roots. However, it also will also eat sedges, mosses, and berries. Arctic Hare--
Continued The arctic hare is prey because things like eagles, hawks, snakes, and bears eat it. One of the many interesting facts about the arctic hare is that they are nocturnal. The Beaver The beaver - its scientific name is castor canadensis - is an omnivore because it eats fish, tree bark, and nuts. It is prey and predator because it is hunted but it also hunts other animals. The Beaver--
Continued The beaver lives near rivers, ponds, streams, small lakes,
and marshes. One of its human uses is the facts that is hunted for its coat. One interesting fact is that Beaver Lake was named because of the beavers living around it. Pronghorn The pronghorn's scientific name is antilocapra americana. It lives in grasslands, bushlands, and deserts. It is very populous in Nebraska and other central states like Kansas
and Oklahoma. The Wild Turkey The wild turkey's scientific name is meleagris gallopavo. It lives in fields, meadows, orchards, marshes, and pastures. The wild turkey is an omnivore because it eats salamanders and fruit and buds. It is mostly prey because animals like wolves hunt it. The Wild Turkey--
Continued The wild turkey's human uses include being hunted by humans for meat and feathers. The pronghorn is a herbivore because it eats grasses, sagebrush, and cactus. It is prey because other animals like wolves hunt it. The Pronghorn--
Continued North American Porcupine The North American Porcupine is a herbivore because it eats roots, twigs, and green plants like clover and skunk cabbage. Its scientific name is erithizon dorsatum. The North American Porcupine lives in timbers and forests in the east, and scrubby areas in the west. Humans use their quills for hair accessories. The North American Porcupine--
Continued The North American Porcupine is prey because if a hungry animal is desperate enough, it will try and kill the porcupine. One interesting fact is, despite what most people think, the porcupine does not shoot its quills. They are on the porcupine's tail, so when it feels threatened, it lashes out with its tail. The North American Mink The North American Mink - its scientific name is neovison vison - is a carnivore because it eats muskrats, rabbits, chipmunks, mice, fish, snakes, frogs, and birds. The North American Mink lives in forested areas that are near rivers, streams, lakes, and marshes. The North American Mink--
Continued The North American Mink both a predator and prey because animals like foxes, cougars, mountain lions, and wolves will hunt it. However, like it said on the other slide before this, the North American Mink hunts animals like chipmunks and mice. One intersting fact is that, like the skunk, it sprays a foul-smelling liquid when it feels threatened. Unlike the skunk, however, it cannot aim its spray! Thanks for watching!!
