Clouded leopard can open its jaws wider than any other cat, (and its tooth development is most like that of the extinct sabertooth cat - so I red)
A clouded’s 5 centimeters (2 inch) long canine teeth are the same size as those of a tiger, even though a tiger is 10 times larger in body size!
Cormorants do not have waterproof feathers. It turns out that waterproof feathers stink for diving, so instead cormorants kept feathers that are easily waterlogged to help them sink and dive faster. This is why you’ll often see them with just their heads sticking out of the water because their feathers are waterlogged and weighing them down and you’ll also see them sitting on rocks with their wings spread out drying their wet feathers.
The sun bear can be found in the tropical rainforests of southeastern Asia . They are hunted for their meat and their body parts which are used for medicine.
Sun bears are recognised by their short black fur, small round ears, bowed front legs and cream coloured curved claws. They are the smallest of all bears.
Common myna roosts in large flocks that occasionally consist of few thousand birds and it is a species that is part of the starling family. The myna produces various songs that consist of whistling, squeaking and gurgling sounds. Captive birds are able to mimic humans' speech.
Roe deer antlers grow at a different time to red deer antlers. Roe antlers start growing around December, stop growing in April or May, and fall off around November.
Their antlers are made out of a special kind of bone. They grow by having fur round them, and the fur is called velvet. The velvet helps get blood to the antlers to help them grow. Velvet on roe deer is thicker than velvet on red deer antlers because they have to keep the antlers warmer in winter.

The Rook is superabundant throughout all habitat types in the UK. It is also a breeding resident in the UK. The Rook appears in all counties throughout the UK, however, it is less numerous in North West Scotland as habitat is a little less suitable. This species is also a member of the crow family.
While starlings appear black at a distance, close up they have glossy green and purple iridescent plumage. In the breeding season, adults have yellow bills with different colour bases depending on their sex; in males this is blue and in females pink. Their winter plumage is duller with white spots and the bill is dark.
This is a hybrid gyrfalcon and a peregrine falcon. A hybrid is a cross between different species. In captivity many species of falcon are hybridised to gain the characteristics of both species. A hybrid also exhibits 'hybrid vigour' which hopefully makes for a better hunting bird. Hybrids may also occur in the wild but usually do not survive for various reasons.
