GIVE THANKS TO THE ANIMALS WEEK- DAY #2
We’re celebrating predators today! Without these great predators the world’s ecosystems would be out of whack! Often these predators get a bad rap or are unnecessarily feared. So let’s give it up for the animals and give them thanks!
Snakes are feared, hated and misunderstood. Snakes are not human killers. They do not seek out people, but they do eat rodents. Without these predators there would be too many rodents around. Snakes also are preyed upon by other animals, like hawks. Snakes are very important part of the food web.
Sharks are amazing animals. They have skeletons made of cartilage and mouths full of teeth. They come in all sizes and there is one shark in particular that is most feared- the Great White. These apex predators are not mindless killing machines and they do not seek out humans. They do like fatty seals and fish though. The oceans wouldn’t be the same without these sharks.
Wolves are gorgeous members are the canine family. Wolves have been portrayed badly in myths and stories for years. These predators are thought to also prey on people- yet another belief that is untrue. Wolves help control deer and rabbit populations. Wolves should be respected not feared!
We love these predators and give them thanks for their place in the natural world! Do you have a favorite predator?
