Introduction

I would like to thank my whole family for helping me to do my project.I also would like to thank my science teacher,Mr Raja to teach me do this project.I am so proud to have a teacher like Mr Raja. A place where organisms is call habitat. Examples of habitat are forests,sea,ponds and wetlands.

Group Animals
Amphibians

Amphibians are four-limbed vertebrates that include salamanders, newts, caecilians, frogs, and toads. Early amphibians arose during the Devonian Period, 370 million years ago, and were the first vertebrates to venture out from the water and adapt to life on land. Despite their early colonization of land, most amphibians have never fully severed their ties with aquatic habitats

Competition
Animals Compete for Food
In their search for food, animals are in competition with others in their own species, as well of those in other species. This is especially an issue if food is in short supply. Typically, animals find food on the basis of their own performance, plus some luck. In some cases, they battle head-on-head for possession of the some food. There are also cases where animals will take food that belongs to another or even eat the other animal as food.
Eat other animal

There are predatory animals that eat other animals for food. This is a competition in which the predator is seeking the reward of a meal, while the victim of the attack or the p rey is fighting to save its life. Sometimes the predator wins the competition and eats its prey. Other times, the prey will escape and be the winner. In some occasions, the prey will counter-attack and either chase off the predatory or even kill it. A lion will attack a small elephant and kill it, or the elephant may be able to escape the attack. Sometimes the lion can pick the wrong elephant that will counter-attack and kill or injure the lion.

Endangered Species

Once flourishing in the forests of Asia, there are now fewer than five thousand tigers left in the world. Already the Caspian and Malinese tigers are extinct. However, there finally is a law that bans hunting of tigers everywhere. Unfortunately there is even a greater threat to them which they face, a far greater threat than hunters. Thousands of tigers have been killed in the last 50 years because their habitat has been destroyed by bulldozers and chainsaws. Already more than 80 per cent of India's forests have been destroyed. Still more forests are being cut down in order to sell firewood and lumber, plus to clear the land for farming. Despite all of the hardships and disasters that this animal has endured, the tiger population has actually risen over the last ten years. This has only been possible through strict laws protecting these magnificent animals and

wilderness preserves around the world. However, this is just a small step in saving the tigers. New preserves must be added, but finding these preserves will not be easy. There must be enough water, prey, and plants for their prey to feed on. The people living near the tigers must manage and control the commercial use of the lands natural resources.

Illegal and Excessive logging

This is an example of illegal and excessive logging.

Hunting Animals

Reason

The animals point of view

Why did a debate about hunting take off in Britain? Essentially, because people have been learning to see hunting from the animals point of view. When, like Descartes, people believed that animals were automata, with no feelings but only a kind of invisible clockwork inside, they had no qualms about treating them in whatever way seemed enjoyable or useful. We human beings have moved on since Descartes day. We know not just that we are animals, but that we belong to the same family tree as other mammals, that our physiology and bodily processes are just like theirs, and that our mental processes too are from the same general pattern. Some people believe that animals have rights. I dont go that far, since I recognise that rights are a kind of social construct. Rights exist only when there is also law and contract and litigation. But just because the other animals fall short of us in those respects (lucky things) it doesnt follow that they have a lesser capacity to feel fear, pain, grief, anxiety, distress and all the other emotions that lead us to take pity on each other. You just need to look at a dog with a broken leg, or a mouse caught by a cat, to recognise the symptoms of pain, fear and panic. If you pity people then you will pity these animals too. s This is what the debate over hunting is really about. If I saw a child being pursued across a field by a pack of dogs, I would be horrified: his fear would be my fear, and his pain when caught would be my pain. This is what I feel when I see a fox in the same situation.

Solitary Animals

The Sunda pangolin (scientific name: Manis javanica) is a scaly anteater that is found in Singapore and various other parts of Southeast Asia. It is a land mammal but has often been mistaken to be a reptile because of its scalecovered body. ... A shy an...
Aardvark vs Anteater - Difference and Comparison | Diffen

Difference between Aardvark and Anteater. ... Anteaters and aardvarks are similar looking animals that are actually different species. An anteater is a mammal of the suborder Vermilingua. It is a solitary animal and is also known as the anthill bear. Animal Totem Bears The most common bear is the black bear. This name can be misleading since some black bears are various shades of brown. The Grizzly is most famous for its ferocious strength but is not aggressive by nature. ... The largest bear is the Alaskan Brown Bear

Appreciation I would like to thank my science Teacher, Mr.Raja for giving me the opportunity to do this science project.I also like to thnk my family.
