Hybrids between different species within the same genus (such as between lions and tigers) are known as interspecific hybrids or crosses. Young marsupials are born in a very undeveloped state and are sheltered in a pouch that contains the nipples of the milk glands. The dominate male in a lion pride will mate every 10 to 20 minutes 24/7 for 7 days. This uses 35% less energy and reduces aerodynamic drag, which compensates for their heavier, more muscular wings.

Omnivorous; primarily feeds on vegetation and insects. In New Hampshire, Williamson and Langley [ 457 ] gave the following recommendations for managing spruce-fir yards: 1) maintain cover within most of the yard; 2) encourage spruce and fir regeneration in the yard and in adjacent stands; and 3) where possible, manage adjacent hardwood stands for browse production.

If a person or a pet has come in direct contact with one of these animals please contact your physician, veterinarian or Veterinary Public Health at (919) 707-5900. Our work relies heavily on the support of our donors. Kangaroos and wombats feed mostly on grasses, while koalas eat leaves. Aquatic mammals have flippers, or fins, for swimming rather than legs. Thus, use of burned areas is also likely influenced by these factors. The larval form of a modern-day lamprey, which looks like a lancelet, may resemble the first vertebrates: it has the three chordate characteristics (like the tunicate larva), as well as a two-chambered heart, a three-part brain, and other internal organs that are like those of vertebrates.
