worldlike pandas elephants we are going to learn some
amazingthings about elephants lazy here are some baby sloths oh and gorillas you will also learn all about gorillas ok i cant handle the cuteness i just cant and Of course, we have a couple of surprise
animalsthat we are going to learn about as well. You will have to watch until the end to see which animals are first. Let's learn about elephants. they are elephants well elephants are huge mammals that have a long trunk and big ears oh look at this elephant taking a walk in a field we mentioned that elephants are huge and when we say they are huge we are not kidding in fact african elephants are the biggest land animals in the
worldok and you might be wondering how big african elephants are it's amazing that african elephants can grow to be 13 feet and weigh up to 14 000 pounds that's huge so if anyone Do you ever ask, what is the largest land animal in the world, do you know what to tell them, the African elephant, how big can it get up to 13 feet tall and 14,000 pounds?
So the elephants are huge and the African elephants are so big that they are the biggest. land animals in the world, but where can you find elephants living in the wild? Can you find wild elephants in their natural habitats? Okay, we can work with this world map now, let's look at the world map to find out where elephants live in the wild, elephants live in the wild, and parts of Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. let's say those places again and be sure to look at where they are on the map elephants live in the wild in parts of africa south asia and south east asia this next fact is a fact you'll want to share with someone ok check this out A group of elephants is called a parade, isn't that a good name for a group of elephants?
A group of elephants is called uh uh-huh a parade now if you ever see an elephant parade you will probably see it baby elephants in the parade do you know what baby elephants are called yes baby elephants are called calves can you say that word calves baby elephants are called calves now we are going to talk about a very special part of an elephant's body called the trunk the long trunk of an elephant is very useful here you can see an elephant using its trunk to eat this is what an elephant looks like carries food into its mouth using its trunk an elephant could not survive without its trunk you see elephants using their trunk to carry food and water to their mouths they also use their trunks to breathe and smell an elephant's trunk not only carries food and water to the mouth an elephant's mouth but also functions as its nose elephants also use their trunks for bathing and more Elephant trunks are very important to elephants.
Speaking of baths, elephants give themselves something called a dust bath. It may seem strange to us, right? Why would an elephant bathe only with dirt? But dust baths are a great way for elephants to help their skin. and fighting nasty insects called parasites isn't that amazing for an elephant taking a dust bath is a smart thing which shouldn't be surprising because elephants are incredibly smart they are incredibly smart in fact elephants have a brain bigger than any another other terrestrial mammal that's how it is and its brain can weigh 13 pounds 13 pounds imagine a 13 pound brain wow elephants are so smart and their brains are so big that's why elephants are famous for their incredible memory elephants have a memory amazing that they can remember places other elephants things that happen to them they can remember people have amazing memories the next time you have an exam you might think wow i wish i was an elephant t and i was able to remember so many things so easily but as people our memory is not so good, we have to work very hard to achieve it, but elephants can remember r unbelievably good, okay, it's time for our final fact on elephants and it has to work. with what elephants eat and the fact is these elephants are herbivores now what is a herbivore herbivores are animals that only eat plants and that is what an elephant is an elephant is a herbivore an animal that only eats plants they don't eat meat Do you like eat plants, cool plants are tasty and healthy, too awesome, next let's learn about pandas.
The thumbnail for this video had a panda on it. spots around the eyes above the ears, legs and back, these bears with black markings look really cool, don't they? So you might be wondering where pandas are from pandas are from china they still live in the wild in china although there are a few pandas that are in captivity in other parts of the world and this is interesting because living in china wasn't until 1869 the united states and europe found out about these amazing wow bears imagine pandas were like the best kept secret in the animal world for a long time let's learn even more facts about these special bears from china first let's see what a panda eats, it might surprise you, literally 99% of a panda's diet consists of bamboo, that's right, they are carnivorous, which means they can eat meat, but they just prefer bamboo and spend most of their day collecting bamboo, preparing it and eating it whenever pandas are in captivity, they generally eat many other foods, it can be difficult to provide pandas with the amount of bamboo they need when kept in other countries, but in the nature, pandas want their bamboo, wow, this cartoon panda is really going to town on this bamboo.
Next, we'll learn about perhaps the cutest babies in the world. the animal kingdom panda babies panda babies are so cute it might hurt your eyes not really but almost comment below if you think panda babies are the cutest in the animal world panda babies like other bears babies are called cubs , that's right and unlike the nice little cartoon here the father is not involved in raising the cub the mother alone raises the cub we mentioned panda parents go on and do their thing the reason they like to do that is because the Pandas are solitary creatures that enjoy being alone.
While there are times when a panda may be in a group, pandas generally prefer to be alone, now we must warn you here, seriously, prepare for the saddest fact we've ever shared, it's going to sound cruel, but that's not our fault. Aren't they the ones who did this? It's okay, you were warned. Okay, here's a group of pandas called an embarrassment. Yes, a group of pandas is a shame on pandas. b We call shame some people do not like this term, so some people call a group of pandas a bamboo a panda bamboo but the name of a group of pandas is actually a shame, actually there are people who are applying change that because that's just not a very nice way to say a bunch of pandas there's got to be a better way, a nicer way to say a bunch of pandas than to use the word shame okay we're all good so we learned pandas like to be alone and when they're in a group that group is called shame and they should probably change that word because it's bad but that's what they're called ok now let's talk about sleeping oh , that sounds funny so here's our question how much do pandas sleep that's a good question how much do you think how much do pandas sleep this might surprise you but pandas only sleep about 10 hours a day what follows It means that pandas sleep about the same amount as most children. t the same amount as a panda thats great pandas are very busy gathering food and eating can take a lot of time in their day they usually only fit in about 10 hours of sleep and rest wow these are really amazing animals we love pandas and we want to make sure we protect them Pandas were once considered an endangered species because their numbers dropped as recently as the 1970s there were only about a thousand pandas living in the wild that's only a thousand thankfully in 2018 the number is around 1 900 pandas so the number has been increasing one of the biggest challenges for pandas is that their habitat has been shrinking as more and more land is developed on land than pandas They call home keeps getting smaller remember that pandas like their space and enjoy being alone, but the land and forests they call home have shrunk substantially. entity.
The good news is that there are organizations fighting to protect not only the pandas, but also the areas they call h. Sometimes while pandas are no longer considered endangered they are still considered something called a threatened species which means we have to continue our efforts to protect and defend them ok now we are learning about sloths get it 'Cause they're moving slow, oh, we're getting ahead of ourselves. ourselves sloths are medium sized tree living mammals yes they live in trees they are tree dwellers that is where their home is they are in trees ok where in the world can you find these fascinating mammals that live? in trees called sloths if you wanted to see a sloth where in the world would you have to go you would have to go to central and south america that's where sloths live sloths live in central and south america living peaceful lives in the trees that's nice awesome this is where we need your help what sloths are known for hmm do you know what it is about sloths that almost everyone seems to know what the most famous thing about sloths is what sloths are known for just because yes sloths are known for being slow , sloths move very very slowly which actually helps them it is very important for sloths to move slowly because they are so slow it saves energy the food they eat does not give them much energy so it is very It is It is important that sloths save as much energy as they can.
Slow movement can also help them avoid detection by certain predators. That's great. If a predator discovers a sloth, the predator better watch out because sloths have very sharp claws. they are actually incredibly dangerous their claws can do a lot of damage they move slowly but their claws do a great job protecting sloths ok we get it sloths are slow but how slow are they we will catch this the three toed sloth is the slowest moving mammal in the world it is true that the other main type of sloth called two toed sloth is also very slow but as we mentioned slots it is an advantage to be slow hey did you notice the baby sloth in this photo? ah right there oh my god you little sloth baby another interesting thing about sloths is they have very low muscle mass especially when you compare them to other mammals they are really different from muscle man ted wow you love lifting weights , It is not like this? is a good question what do sloths eat well? all sloths eat leaves three toed sloths only eat leaves which to us may sound boring but they make it work two toed sloths can eat fruit insects and even lizards besides leaves but one thing is for sure they digest their food very slowly, but you may have already guessed that they do everything slowly.
This sloth is on the ground. Here's our final fact on sloths. They have to be very careful when they are on the ground. Many sloths just go. to the ground about once a week, that's when they're on the ground when they're most vulnerable and open to attack, but remember their claws sloths will definitely fight back very slowly but they will. Alright now we are going to learn about gorillas, yes gorillas are amazing and this is the first thing we are going to learn about gorillas. Gorillas are the largest apes in the world. Hey, do you know where gorillas live?
What part of the world are gorillas from? Hmm. Gorillas are from the African continent. Gorillas live in a part of Africa called sub-Saharan Africa. You may be wondering what sub-Saharan Africa is. africa is made up of something called the sahara it is a famous desert often called the great desert it is one of the largest deserts in the world it is so huge it is about the size of the entire united states subsaharan africa is the area of africa south of the sahara that is where the gorillas live gorillas live in the forests of africa some live in the tropical forests of sub saharan africa while others live in the sub tropical forests so if anyone asks you where the gorillas live first of all ask them hey what Are you a fan of gorillas?
Do you think they are cool? and then let them know that gorillas live in the forests of sub-Saharan Africa. Oh wow, here's a really interesting fact about gorillas. Just like humans, baby gorillas are called babies, that's right, not so cute, sweet little babies, theseBabies are super cute and unlike human babies, they don't wear diapers. well, babies are taken care of by their mothers, mother is the main caretaker in baby's life, father's main role is to protect mother and baby, this is great, gorillas live in groups called troops, right? is such an interesting group? of gorillas is called a troop they are usually led by a gorilla called a silverback a silverback is a mature male gorilla when male gorillas age some of the hair on their backs turns silver in color usually a troop is led by a silverback and the re The first part of the troop is made up of female gorillas and their children.
There are examples of troops having more than one silverback gorilla, but that's rarer. Usually there is a silverback gorilla who leads the troop and protects the female gorillas and children. The silverbacks are willing to give their life for the troop and they are very brave, ok, get ready for a shocking fact about gorillas , ok, you will be surprised, such a shocking fact that you will have to share it with your friends and your family did you know that gorillas normally don't drink water that's right gorillas don't usually drink water gorillas eat so much vegetation that is rich in water that they normally get all the water they need from their food gorillas love to eat plants and vegetation when they eat plants in the morning the plants have the morning dew on them which brings even more water into their system whereas gorillas have the ability to drink water, and in some circumstances will usually get all their water from the vegetation they eat. gorillas eat a lot of vegetation they live in herds they are the largest apes in the world and they live in sub-saharan africa okay now let's talk about how gorillas get plas to the place they walk in a very special way gorillas walk on their knuckles it's called walking with knuckles have you ever walked using your knuckles it hurts after a while it doesn't it doesn't happen often but gorillas sometimes walk on their two feet like we do if they need to carry something or in a situation where they feel threatened; otherwise they walk on knuckles.
Gorillas are known for how they walk, but also for how smart they are. Gorillas are animals so intelligent that they can create and use their own tools. They are able to think about the past and the future and have demonstrated the ability to learn and use sign language. Perhaps the most famous gorilla was a gorilla named Coco, recognized by about 2,000 English words and used sign language incredibly well. She died in June 2018, just two months before we made this video. She not only taught us a lot about gorillas, but she made lasting friendships with those who worked with her.
She was a gorilla. amazing pair What makes working with gorillas so special is not only their incredible intelligence, but also their emotions Gorillas laugh and cry just like we do They form special bonds with family and care deeply for family and friends Gorillas They are amazing. Unfortunately, the guerrillas are critically endangered and must be protected. There are laws that protect gorillas and many organizations. who work day in and day out to make sure gorilla populations stay healthy and strong we hope you have fun learning with us next we will learn about polar bears cool polar bears they are huge bears they love the cold they love the cold they live within an area of the globe called the arctic circle you can see it right here on this map if you were to look directly down at a globe that area at the top is the area of the globe in the arctic circle now this is interesting only about four million people live within the arctic circle can be a hard place to live because it is so unbelievably cold but it is the perfect place for polar bears polar bears love the cold that is why the arctic circle is the perfect home for these amazing bears oh look these two polar bears are friends they are friends just play nice play nice polar bears you may already know this but polar bears not only saw come in the arctic circle there are polar bears that live in other parts of the world in captivity which means they live in places like zoo habitats that humans create we are going to share more about this later in this video by now we need your help with an easy question can you help us what color are polar bears yes what color are they uh-huh yes they are white are they white now we have another question for you what color is their fur you guessed white many people think that polar bear fur is white because that is what it looks like to us but polar bear fur is not white it is clear that polar bear fur is actually light it is so why the polar bear f You look white to us because not only is the polar bear clear, it's translucent, wow, what a word translucent, can you say translucent? impress someone today and say polar bear fur is translucent, what does translucent mean?
Well, translucent means light can go through it, light does go through it. polar bear fur how cool is that isn't that amazing light passes through fur and fur reflects light a polar bear's fur always reflects light that's why its fur looks white that's why a polar bear looks white why is it bear white because light passes through the fur and the fur reflects light very well earlier we said polar bears are huge but how big are they let's put it this way polar bears are the largest land carnivores in the world world, that's how polar bears are the world's largest land carnivores a carnivore is an animal that eats meat male polar bears can weigh up to 1,500 pounds female polar bears can weigh up to 1,000 pounds being polar polar bears are too much tall polar bears can be up to 10 feet 10 feet polar bears are huge no wonder they are the world's largest land carnivores part of what makes them so big is their eating habits their food favorite is sealed meat seals love to eat polar bears love to eat seals they can also eat walrus beluga whales or any other meat they can find even you're on a plate watch out for seals that came close but let's change the subject let's talk about the baby polar bears like other baby bears baby polar bears are called cubs aren't they cute? these two pups are playing they are so playful pups start out weighing only a pound or two but grow up quickly this is great mom polar bears teach cubs their way of life and how to survive you know tips on how to eat as many seals as you can you know there were a lot of them just kind of h coming out before you should go see the ones you know the seals you know they also teach their cubs one of the favorite activities of polar bears swimming this is so amazing which you might not realize but polar bears are amazing swimmers they are great at swimming they could swim for miles and miles and they not only swim to get from here to there but they swim to relax and cool off its amazing they are great swimmers it's official polar bears are cool they're cool check this out we learned that polar bears are the world's largest land carnivores they are huge they live in the arctic circle lo which is perfect because they love the cold we learned that they have translucent fur this amazing fur that allows light to pass through and reflects that light and that's why they look white that's why they look like white bears we learned that polar bears love to eat seals watch out for seals you look like a polar bear snack you look like a polar bear snack and we learned they are great swimmers they could swim miles and miles not only to get from here to there but they really enjoy it sometimes they swim alone to cool off and relax ok we have one last fact this fact is really important polar bears are considered a globally increasing threatened species. temperatures have caused a decrease in the natural habitat of polar bears in the arctic, we mentioned earlier that polar bears live in captivity in different parts of the world and places like zoos, but life in captivity is not the same as life in nature, the amazing thing is that there are organizations that are working to protect polar bears, we want these amazing animals to live a happy and healthy life in their arctic home, finally, we are going to learn about jaguars, wait, jaguars, are you ready?
Let's start, what are jaguars? Well, jaguars are? wild cats living in the americas now you may be wondering where jaguars live in the americas thats a good question well jaguars live in the southwestern united states central america and south america see jaguars in the southwestern us united states is rare but it happens that jaguars have been seen in california, arizona and texas but most jaguars live in central and south america one of the things jaguars are famous for is their size thats correct Jaguars are the largest cats in North and South America. They are huge. Jaguars can weigh more than 300 pounds.
That's how it is. Much of your weight is muscle. These are really strong cats. so powerful they can bite through a skull that's right they have one of the most powerful bites in the cat world their jaws are strong enough to drag up to 800lbs across the ground that's so strong next let's talk about Jaguars look cool, they look cool, don't be jealous Mr. Whiskers, that's fine, you look cool too, most jaguars have fur that looks like a mix between orange and yellow with lots of spots. The spots near the neck and head are solid, the rest of the spots are generally more colorful with brown on the inside, you may have noticed this by now, but jaguars look a lot like leopards, it can be hard notice the difference between the two.
I don't know the difference between the two, but you don't. We are going to share an easy way to tell a jaguar from a leopard. It's all about the stains. The spots on jaguars and leopards are called rosettes. They're called rosettes because they're shaped like roses, which makes sense, so what's the easiest way to tell the difference between jaguars and leopards? Well, jaguars have much larger rosettes, not only that, but the rosettes have black dots. Leopards have many more rosettes. than jaguars but they are much smaller and don't have the spots inside them, there is also a difference in size, jaguars are much bigger and stronger than leopards, there are other differences as well but those are the main ones as well that the easiest way to tell the difference between a jaguar and a leopard is to look at their rosettes, but why do they have rosettes?
Why do they have them? That's a great question. Well, the rosettes are important because they help the cat to camouflage itself. Part of what makes jaguars so hard to find in the wild is the fact that they have these huge rosettes on their fur. We just talked about what jaguars are. and while most jaguars look like this, some jaguars don't, there are jaguars that actually have black fur, that's right, they also have rosettes, but it's usually very hard to see them. yes melanistic jaguars it means they have dark colored fur there is a different name most people call melanistic jaguars what do you think it is yes melanistic jaguars are common?
Black panthers found in Central and South America are melanistic jaguars. Black panthers that live in Africa and Asia are actually melanistic leopards. Black panthers are not their own species. Black panthers are leopards or jaguars. These black jaguars commonly called black panthers do very good, in the wild, they use their black coats to their advantage when hunting at night, it is very difficult to see a black panther while it is hunting, if you want to impress someone, next time you hear about it the black panthers, just let them know they are black panthers. they live in central and south america they are actually melanistic jaguars if they don't believe you you can invite them to look it up and they will say what are you an animal expert the next thing we want to learn is baby jaguars yeah so cute baby jaguars are called cubs that's right , cubs are born blind and cannot see until they are two weeks old, jaguar cubs stay in the same den they were born in until they are around six months old then a jaguar cub is ready to go hunting with mom once jaguars are fully grown they are usually very solitary they like to hunt and do things on their own jaguars are hunters through and through they not only hunt on land they can also hunt in the water they are also great swimmers what whatever they catch doesn't stand a good chance remember what we shared about a jaguar's jaw it can bite through a skull the final fact we're going to talk about blar its sad the jaguar population has been declining and jaguars are now considered near threatened like many other animals around the world jaguars have suffered due to deforestation jaguars are alsohunted by people a problem that has been difficult to stop if the jaguar population is not protected, they could become a threatened species species we hope you have enjoyed learning about animals around the world with us protecting animals like the ones you learned about is very important these animals are truly amazing special thanks to our sponsors who make videos like this possible if you would like to support us and get some cool homeschool pop tattoos please click the link below this video or visit homeschoolpop.com as always its awesome hope to see you at the next video
