Heksie, onewithnature :clap: :clap:

Wild Dogs allow the crested francolin to come into their den to clean up scraps of meat and crested francolins in return sound an alarm near their dens if their is danger.

Side-striped jackal Canis adustus: The back is darker grey than the underside, and the tail is black with a white tip. Indistinct white stripes are present on the flanks, running from elbow to hip.


Black-backed jackal Canis mesomelas: The black and silver saddle marking on its back gives this species its distinctive appearance and name.

Just for fun: :) The black-backed jackal's skull is similar to that of the side-striped jackal, but is less flat, and has a shorter, broader rostrum.

Keratin - it is the main component of hair, nails and hooves.

Phokojwe, over to you! :great:

"Keratin is a family of fibrous structural proteins. Keratin is the key structural material making up the outer layer of human skin. It is also the key structural component of hair and nails. Keratin monomers assemble into bundles to form intermediate filaments, which are tough and insoluble and form strong unmineralized tissues found in reptiles, birds, amphibians, and Mammals. The only other biological matter known to approximate the toughness of keratinized tissue is chitin".

The term ‘cetacean’ is used to describe what type of mammal?

Whales and dolphins. The blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived.

"Any of various aquatic, chiefly marine mammals of the order Cetacea, including the whales, dolphins, and porpoises, characterized by a nearly hairless body, anterior limbs modified into broad flippers, vestigial posterior limbs, and a flat notched tail".

Rooies and Philip1 :clap:

Thanks for that explanation Philip1 :thumbs_up:

Fossil evidence suggests that cetaceans share a common ancestor with land-dwelling mammals that began living in marine environments around 50 million years ago. Today, they are the mammals best adapted to aquatic life.
