Transcript of Animal Behaviors

-By: Matt Kostmayer Animal Behaviors Finding Food When they are in the water, only their eyes, ears, and nose are visible above water, and you can barely see them. They lunge, with the help of their strong tail, and strike faster than the prey can move. This is an Innate behavior. Marking Territory Dog (Mammal) Defensive Action Snakes (Reptile) Courtship Groups of flamingos perform ritualized stretching and preening when courting begins. Males group together and often run with bills pointed up and necks held straight out. Birds interested in one another call to each other frequently and together. Parenting Kangaroos (Mammals) Seasonal Behavior Bear (Mammal) An Example of Animal Communication Dolphins develop a distinctive high-pitched whistle. It may let the rest of the group know which dolphins are around, where they are, and sometimes something about their mental state. Dolphins in distress sometimes whistle very loudly. Another Example of Animal Communication Gorillas (Mammals) Crocodiles (Reptiles) Source: http://mieka.hubpages.com/hub/Crocodilians-What-do-they-eat-and-how-do-they-kill-it Dogs mark their territory by urinating on it.
The smell tells other animals that it is the dog's territory. This is an Innate behavior. Source: http://www.humanesociety.org/animals/dogs/tips/urine_marking.html Snakes defend themselves by blending in their surroundings. If they are seen the way they fight is they lash out super fast and bite their prey with their poisonous fangs. This is an Innate behavior. source: http://answers.ask.com/Science/Other/how_do_snakes_protect_themselves Flamingos (Birds) source: http://www.seaworld.org/infobooks/flamingos/freproduction.html When the Joey (baby kangaroo) is born, it is about the size of a lima bean. The Joey will usually stay in the pouch for about nine months before starting to leave the pouch for small periods of time. The baby kangaroo is usually fed by its mother until reaching 18 months. source: http://www.decodedstuff.com/parenting-in-the-animal-kingdom-my-baby-and-me/ This is a learned behavior. This is an Innate behavior. Bears are very active during late spring through early fall, but sleep throughout the winter. source: http://www.bearsmart.com This is an Innate Behavior. Dolphins (Mammals) source: http://www.dolphins.org/marineed_communication.php Gorillas will make very loud screaming sounds and at the same time they will beat their chest with their hands rapidly. This is a warning signal to the younger gorillas to back off or they will start a fight. They make chirps, grunts, roars, growls, and even hooting like an owl at times. But some we don't know what they mean. They also laugh and stick their tongues out. (Learned) (Learned) HOPE YOU ENJOYED MY PREZI! -MATT KOSTMAYER
