Fox
Foxes are much more interesting than just a red and white ball of fur that hunts in the forest. Have you ever wondered about fox pups?


Firstly, the mother carries the pups for about 53 days and are usually born between march and may. The fox babies are called kits there are about two to seven pups in a litter. after a month the kits will start to eat the food that the family gets for them, the mother and father will take turns caring for them and the older brothers and sisters will help by getting them more food.


Secondly Their mother will start to feed them live prey to play with and eat which gives them the skills they will need for hunting when they leave the den. 17.jpg


Lastly After 7 months the wolf pups will leave the den to go make a life for themselves. They will most likely live alone until mating season when they will find a den to live in with the father and give birth to the kits.

The lifecycle of the fox will continue repeating itself if you can help stop fox hunting then we can save these beautiful creatures. There are about 240,000 foxes left in the world and the number drops everyday. SAVE THE FOXES PEOPLE!!

i thought this piece of writing was a fun challenge although i had a little bit of trouble making my facts flow together but otherwise it was fun.

Red panda

Red panda
Opening statement
Red Panda are an endangered species living in the mountains of  Nepal, Buruma and central China. Their scientific name is Ailurus fulgens with its relatives the giant panda and the raccoon sharing the same tail markings with their own unique family, Ailuridae.
Appearance
maxresdefault.jpgRed pandas are similar to raccoons with the same tail markings just differently coloured. They are a reddish brown with rings around their long bushy tails on their heads are two cute black and white ears as well as their muzzle while the bottom of their feet are also white keeping them warm.
Diet
Just like giant pandas, the red pandas like to eat Bamboo shoots. They have a special small wrist structure which helps them hold onto the shoots. They also like to eat Fruits, Nuts, grass, leaves, eggs, Flowers and seeds.
Reproduction
The red pandas breeding season is in late fall until late winter and the wait for the babies are about 4 months. In a normal litter about 1 - 4 are born in late spring and summer. They build nests, use hollow tree trunks or a small cave for spots to give birth. The mother will take care of her cubs until they are adults which is when the next mating season begins.
Habitat
The red panda lives in forests that grow on mountains in the himalayas Bhutan, Nepal, India, Myanmar and China which usually have lots of food for them. But in most areas, red pandas are extinct and are rapidly declining in others.
General statement

Red panda numbers are quickly decreasing by climate change and us cutting down the forests and polluting the air. We need to think more responsibly about our future, be resilient by not letting it happen and RESPECT the red pandas lives and families!
Lynx
Opening statement
Lynx are the most endangered species in the big cat family which live in the remote forests of North America, Asia and Europe. There are Seven species of lynx, the Eurasian Lynx, the Iberian Lynx, the Canada Lynx and the Bobcat. The scientific name for Lynx is Lynx.
Appearance
0_CATERS_LYNX_KITTEN_04-800x498.jpgThe lynx have short tails with tufts (tufts, long fluffy things on their ears) on their ears and spots on their fur which is either greyish blue, Goldish, to a sort of white . They have large paws for walking through snowy areas and long whiskers. Under the lynxes neck there is a ruff (Ruff, a projecting or conspicuously coloured ring of feathers or hair round the neck of a bird or mammal) that looks a bit like a bowtie but is not often seen at first glance. Every species of lynx have a white belly, chest and on the inside of their legs. The smallest species of lynx are the bobcat and the canada lynx.
Behaviour and Diet
Lynx mostly travel and hunt alone, they can smell prey from over 250 meters away and  use resting or hunting beds to wait for prey to close enough then they attack. They mainly target Snowshoe hare which is most of what they feed on. They also eat Mice, Voles, Grouse, Ptarmigan, Red squirrel and Carrion. (Carrion, the decaying flesh of dead animals.)
Repopulation
Lynx Mate during winter and only give birth once a year. The lynx don't create den sites either, they put their kittens in a log on the ground, a root that makes kind of a shelter or simple ground depression surrounded by dense vegetation. The kittens stay with their mother for the first year of their life while they are taught and learn how to hunt. The father lynx does not help the mother with the kittens.The female lynx gives birth to about 4 kittens when their are enough snowshoe hare available, the amount of kits that come depends on how many snowshoe hare there are.
General statement
If we kill snowshoe hare the lynx population will drop every winter. We can't let another species die out and only leave memories behind. Just think about it and what your doing to our future. Our children may not be able to ever even know what lynxes are! Lets protect them and let our future be a good one.
