The elephant's trunk is a unique and very sensitive organ. It is used to smell, touch and grip.
African Elephants are the largest members of the elephant family and thus the largest land animals. They have four toes on their front feet and five on their hind feet. African Elephants live in large herds which are divided into smaller families. The eldest and largest female is the matriarch and leads the others on the endless quest for food and water. Elephants spend up to sixteen hours a day searching for grass, branches, fruit and creeping plants. Elephants have a rugged but flexible hide, a long trunk and two ivory tusks. They use their amazingly moveable trunk to communicate with one another through touch and smell. Elephant calves are suckled for up to five years. Elephant cows stay with their mother until they are ready to bear young themselves and start their own family. Calves stay with their mother for up to twelve years until they leave to join a "bachelor herd."

The hairs in a Dalmatian's coat are barbed, making them stick to almost any type of fabric.
Dalmatians are named after the region they're from -- Dalmatia, an area in Croatia along the Adriatic Sea. Puppies are completely white when they're born. They develop their own unique pattern of dark brown or black spots within a few weeks. Eye color may be brown, blue, or a combination thereof. Ten percent of Dalmatians are born deaf, but that doesn't stop them from doing their jobs: for thousands of years Dalmatians worked as carriage dogs-they walked alongside horse-drawn chariots and then carriages, encouraging the horses to move forward. Before the motorized car was invented, fire trucks were actually just horse-drawn vehicles, and the Dalmatian urged the horses to run as fast as they could to the blazing fires. Nowadays, they're just along for the ride.

Females can give birth to thirty young annually.
Coming out to eat at dusk, rabbits and hares find soft shoots and grasses while being alert to potential danger. They use their front incisors to cut their food while the teeth near the back grind it. Their front teeth never dull because they grow throughout their entire life. When threatened, they bounce away looking for a place to hide. Depending on speed to escape from predators, these mammals use their strong hind legs and feet, often bounding in a zig zag pattern or even just leaping into the air.Learn More
A wolf's tail constitutes one quarter of its body length.
Wolves are carnivorous canines that vary in size depending on their habitat. They travel in packs led by the Alpha pair. They hunt in packs too; this way they can take down bigger prey. A prey that stands its ground has a better chance for survival since wolves can chase their prey, reaching speeds of forty miles per hour with the help of their specialized paws and body structure. By marking their hunting territory, wolves are one step closer to ensuring their survival and their need for almost two tons of meat per year. To combat the elements, wolves have thick fur made up of two layers. The top layer contains guard hairs which repel dirt and water while the bottom layer insulates their body.
