A Predator and His Prey:  A Predator and His Prey Made by Ms. Ochoa & Stephanie Brusuelas The Difference between Predators & Preys :  The Difference between Predators & Preys Predators Preys An animal that is killed and eaten by another animal Any animal that lives by preying on other animals An animal that attacks and feeds on other animals (prey) that are usually smaller and less powerful than itself. The prey is usually killed quickly and entirely or almost entirely eaten; many prey are consumed by the predator during its life An animal is prey when another animal hunts and kills it for food. Puma:  Puma They supplement their diet with other seasonally abundant prey like ground squirrels, slugs, grasshoppers, lizards, rheas, peccaries, fish, porcupines, even coyote and marten. Their diet is seasonal, depending on prey availability. Giraffes:  Giraffes Giraffes are so big that they really don't need to hide from predators. Besides humans, they are hunted only by lions and crocodiles. When they have to, giraffes defend themselves with a deadly kick. Their speed, the way they move, and their body designs also help them to escape predators if they need to. Range: in pockets of Africa, south of the Sahara Desert Habitat: savanna American Scimitar :  American Scimitar Scimitar cats were widespread in North America, from the far north in Alaska to the south in Texas. Scimitars were carnivores that hunted large mammals.                                                                Lion:  Lion Lions are found in savannas, grasslands, dense bush and woodlands. Cooperative hunting enables lions to take prey as large as wildebeests, zebras, buffaloes, young elephants, rhinos, hippos and giraffes, any of which can provide several meals for the pride. Mice, lizards, tortoises, warthogs, antelopes and even crocodiles also form part of a lion's diet. Because they often take over kills made by hyenas, cheetahs and leopards, scavenged food provides more than 50 percent of their diets in areas like the Serengeti plains. Snowy Owl:  Snowy Owl Range: Northern most Canada, Alaska, also circumpolar - prefers open spaces; tundra, grasslands, or frozen lakes. Diet: Lemmings, hare, vole, and shrews. It also sometimes will eat hare or small birds. During the spring breeding season, owls will also eat eggs of waterfowl like swans. In summer, Snowy Owls are brownish with dark spots and stripes.  In winter, they are completely white.  These changes in appearance are so they can hide when they hunt, so that Snow Owls can sneak up and catch the small mice and birds that they eat.  Jaguar:  Jaguar Their large jaw muscles allow them to kill their prey by piercing the skull with their sharp teeth. This allows them to eat spectacled caimans and hard-shelled reptiles like turtles and tortoises. Range: North, Central, and South America Habitat: rain forests, swampy areas, grasslands, woodlands, dry forests, and even deserts Zebra:  Zebra Range: eastern and southern Africa Habitat: most zebras live in grasslands and savannas. The Grevy's zebra lives in subdesert and arid grasslands. They also have a powerful kick that can cause serious injury to a predator, like a lion, a hyena, or an African wild dog.
