Scientific Name: Aquila chrysaetosCommon Name: Golden Eagle Species Taxonomy: Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Cordata Class: Aves Order: Accipitriformes Family: Accipitridae Subfamily: Buteoninae Genus: Aquila Species: A. chrysaetos What environment would your species be found? semi open areas and mountain regions in North America and Eurasia. Species Habitat: cliff sides and wide open valleys in mountain regions. Species Diet: Carnivorous Species Predators: wolverines and grizzly bears Species Prey: small mammals and fish Three Adaptations that the species has: Talons to trap slippery fish, large wings to help it fly through the air, excellent eyesight to see fish and small mammals, and sharp beak to dig into dead prey. Species Reproduction Process: the golden eagle is a sexual reproducer. The golden eagle male picks up a rock and then drops it and then catches it in mid air three times. If the female is interested in him she picks up a rock and drops it and catches it up in mid air. The golden eagles mate for about 40-60 days until the egg is actually ‘laid’. Species Needs: The golden eagle needs water, plentiful food supply, high altitude and wide open space areas, and a not too hot environment. Species Life Span: 30 to 40 years How is species affected by climate change: the golden eagle has adapted to really cool environments. The golden eagle cannot be in a too hot of a temperature. How is species affected by humans: when wind turbines are built in a golden eagles habitat they struggle a lot and often die because of wind turbines. What caused species to become extinct: alive When did this species live: alive Interesting Fact about Species: 1. Has a wingspan of 5-8 ft long 2. Are the most superlative flyers of all eagles Author: Scott Bibliography: Wikipedia, allaboutbirds.org, and audubon.org
Scientific Name: Panthera uncia Common Name: Snow Leopard Species Taxonomy: Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Carnivora Family: Felidae Genus: Panthera Species: Uncia What environment would your species be found? Rugged mountains of Central Asia Species Habitat: Den Species Diet: Blue Sheep and Idex Species Predators: No animal eat snow leopards Species Prey: marmots, pika, hares and birds. Three Adaptations that the species has: They have a self-developed chest also have short forelimbs with sizable paws, long hind limb, and a thick tail nearly a meter long. Species Reproduction Process: they are sexual of there reproduction Species Needs: snow leopard typically hunt such as the Argali sheep are also hunted by local communities. Species Life Span: snow leopard lifespan in the wild How is species affected by climate change: Their typical habitat range is between where the tree line stops and the snow line begins on the mountains. How is species affected by humans: Human density in snow leopard habitat is among the lowest in the world, but our impact are pervasive. What caused species to become extinct: Snow leopards are endangered When did this species live: In rugged mountains of Central Asia Interesting Fact about Species: They are active at dawn and dusk in their hunting activities.

Scientific Name: Ochotona Common Name: Pika Species Taxonomy: Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Lagomorpha Family: Ochotonidae Genus: Ochotona What environment would your species be found? They would be found in decent weather climates, Pikas are VERY sensitive to heat so they keep moving higher and higher on the mountains to stay cool. Species Habitat: alpine terrain, above the tree line, on mountains. They live on rock faces, talus and cliffs near mountain meadows. rocky areas on the side of cliffs, slopes or hillsides. Species Diet: is a herbivore, eats a variety of greens such as grasses, sedges, thistle, and fireweed. Species Predators: eagles, hawks, coyotes, bobcats, foxes, weasels, and racoons. Species Prey: do not hunt, it’s a herbivore Three Adaptations that the species has: a pika has very loud vocals, they used to sound an alarm for other nearby pikas for predators. Their bodies are also meant to run rapidly fast, allowing them to escape predators. The Pika also spends most of its day out gathering food and protecting its den from predators. Species Reproduction Process: They are able to reproduce at 1 year old, and females can carry 2 or 3 litters of babies each year, but it is rare for more than one litter to survive. Species Needs: They need to have water available at all times, and they need to have a cool climate. Species Life Span: 3-7 How is species affected by climate change: they are effected extremely. Pikas are incredible sensitive to heat, so when the heat increases they have to keep climbing the terrain to the highest point to stay cool. How is species affected by humans: Pikas aren’t a concern, they aren’t effected by humans that much. What caused species to become extinct: They are still alive When did this species live: They are still alive Interesting Fact about Species: Pikas can run a maximum of 30 mph Author: Rayne Bibliography: ???
Scientific Name: Canis lupus Common Name: Grey Wolf Species Taxonomy: lupus. Canis latrans, the coyote Canis rufus, the red wolf. What environment would your species be found? In lower 48 states grey wolves were hunted almost to extinction, though some populations survived and others have since been reintroduced. There are a few that live in Europe, but there are many the live in Alaska, Canada, and Asia. Species Habitat: Wolves can be in many different diversities of habitats from the tundra to woodlands, forests, grasslands, and desserts. Today, gray wolves have populated in Alaska, Northern Michigan, Northern Wisconsin, Western Montana, Northern Idaho, Northeast Oregon, and the Yellowstone area of Wyoming. Species Diet: Grey wolves are carnivores. They prefer to eat large hoofed mammals such as deer, elk, bison, and moose. They also will hint small mammals like beavers, rodents, and hares. Species Predators: Grey wolves are, and other wolves, are apex predators in the environment where they live in. Which makes they don’t really have natural predators pf their own, especially since they form packs. But they do have enemies however, as they fight for food sources. Their enemies are bears, tigers, and other wolf packs, depending on the region. Species Prey: Large hoofed animals (like deer, elk, bison, and moose. Also small mammals like beavers, rodents, and, hares. Three Adaptations that the species has: They have many adaptations that help them survive. Their fur is a great insulator and it can keep out the moisture. Their hearing and sense of smell are a lot better then what us humans have. Then their fleshy paws have better traction for the winter and their eyes have adapted in a way that gives them night vision. Species Reproduction Process: Almost always only the male and female alphas of the pack will mate. Wolf packs typically have one litter of pups per year. Mating will typically happen between January and March. Wolves begin breeding between 2 and 3 years of age and are believed to mate for life. Species Need: Since they can be in many different habitats. They really just need water and somewhere where they can get their prey. Species Life Span: Gray Wolves live 5 to 6 years. How is species affected by climate change: The change in temperature is changing and either making it to cold or too hot for them to live in their habitat. How is species affected by humans: The most common cause of death for wolves is conflict with people over livestock losses. While wolf predation on livestock is fairly uncommon, wolves that are suspected of preying on livestock are often killed. Even sometimes the entire pack is killed. There's also other common death for wolves which s hunting and trappings too. What caused species to become extinct: Not extinct When did this species live: Not extinct Interesting Fact about Species: When a wolf wants to show that it is submissive to another wolf, it will crouch, whimper, tuck in its tail, lick the other wolf's mouth, or roll over on its back. When a wolf wants to challenge another wolf, it will grow or lay its ears back on its head. A playful wolf dances and bows. Wolves will bark as warnings. Howling is for long-distance communication to pull a pack back together and to keep strangers away. Author: Kira Bibliography: Defenders.org Journals.plos.org Nwf.org
