Across
1.can grow up to lengths of 8 feet, but typically are about half this size. They are able to swim long distances which has allowed them to colonize many remote islands. Once on a new island, they have no trouble adapting, as being carnivorous, they will eat almost anything.
6.When threatened, it tries to frighten the predator by stomping its feet, arching its back, raising its tail and turning its back on the predator. Give them plenty of room, these creatures can spray up to 12 feet!
7.can inflate their elongated neck ribs, thereby showing their spectacular hood. They have a pair of fixed poison fangs at the front end of the upper jaw, and each fang is connected to a venom gland
9.a nocturnal and solitary creature that feeds almost exclusively on ants and termites
11.native to eastern Australia, they are sometimes called the "Bushman's Alarm Clock", as they wake everybody up early in the morning, and sound their riotous alarm again at sunset when it's time to go to bed.
12.have sharp muzzles, large, dark eyes, and pointed ears. They look a little like foxes, and in fact, are often referred to as "flying foxes."
14.Their nighttime shelter is typically in hollow logs and ground debris. To escape a predator, it can shed its tail. It also has movable and transparent lower eyelids that allow it to see while protecting its eyes from dust.
15.nocturnal tree-dwelling members of the raccoon family. Their prehensile tails help them climb in the tree canopy of the tropical rainforest, where natives there refer to them as "nightwalkers" or "honeybears."
17.They inhabit the lakes, rivers, freshwater swamps, brackish water and papyrus swampsof Africa. During extreme temperature conditions, they shelter themselves by digging dens with their snouts and feet. Hatchlings eat insects and small aquatic invertebrates, and quickly graduate to amphibians, reptiles and birds
18.one of the laziest animals ever, sleeping from 15 to 18 hours each day, they are leaf-eating animals who spend most of their solitary life hanging upside down from the forest canopy.
19.venomous stinger on the tip of its tail. Adults normally rely on their large claws to capture prey, however they are fairly docile and reluctant to strike at you unless provoked.
20.are bold and aggressive fighters and their massive, sharp-edged jaws cause them to be the terror of most of the aquatic and semi-aquatic creatures.
21.These large animals have been known to reach lengths of 25 feet and 200+ pounds. They feed on very large food items such as pigs and deer
22.they dig holes in the ground in the summer, making a dry, watertight cocoon that prevents the evaporation of their body fluids. Inside these cocoons, they can survive for several months in the dry soil by absorbing water stored in their bladder. During the rainy season moisture seeps into the ground & soaks the cocoon. The cocoon softens enough to split open, then it becomes a meal.
Down
2.nocturnal and can be found foraging on the floor of tropical forests, near riverbanks and around logs or trees.
3.Very small weighing in at 10-12 pounds as an adult, these marsupials are found throughout parts of Australia and surrounding islands. They are nocturnal.
4.found in the Sahara Desert and in Saudi Arabia, and being desert dwellers, they are sand-colored. Their most noticeable characteristic is their large ears, which are used for diffusing heat in the daytime and for hunting at night. Their long, bushy tails help them change direction quickly, as well as keep their feet and nose warm when they curl up to sleep.
5.warns potential enemies by stamping its feet, clicking its teeth and hisses while vibrating specialized quills that produce a characteristic rattle
8.can be found in rivers, swamps, bogs, lakes, ponds, creeks, canals and bayous. They can tolerate some saltwater and so have been spotted in marshes as well. Widespread in Florida, they also live in southern Texas, Louisiana, and parts of North and South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama.
10.their weight exceeds 220 lbs. Thick skin keeps moisture inside the body and thus prevents dehydration. They are known as eating machines and will spend hours grazing on grasses and hay, succulents, plants and leaf matter. They can live up to 70 years!
13.native to the coastal desert areas of central Mexico, living in burrows or under rocks. Females of this species can grow as large as 6 to 7 inches with a 3.5 to 4-inch body length.
16.They are stout animals, usually weighing 3 to 5 pounds, 12 to 24 inches in length with an age expectancy of 20 to 30 years. They have thick, short tails that contain fat storage, which the animals can use to survive on when there is no food or when they are hibernating.
