Brahman

Brahman cattle are known for the hump on their backs. The hump helps them store water, which helps them survive during hot conditions. They can grow to weigh over 2,000 pounds, which is still only among the middle of the pack among cattle in the United States.

Nubian Goat

Nubian goats are rather large. They are British animals, and they are known for their large ears. These goats have a variety of uses, particularly for dairy production.

Spider Monkey

Spider monkeys usually live in tropical climates in Central and South America. They get their names from how they hang from trees like spiders. While they don’t have thumbs, they hang in trees with their tails and limbs.

Capuchin Monkey

Capuchin monkeys are famous for their white-fur faces and black-fur bodies. They can also have light tan faces and brown bodies. These monkeys are native to South America, and they can be about 22 inches long.

Marmoset Monkey

Marmosets are New World monkeys, and they are the smallest monkeys in the world. Including their tail, they do not get much more than seven inches long. They are so small, they are nicknamed the finger monkeys.

Lion

Lions are known as the king of the jungle, but most of them live in grasslands or savannahs. They live in groups of about 30, and these groups are called prides. The females do most of the hunting, bringing food back to the pride for everyone to eat.

Serval

Servals are cats who are about medium-sized, and have spots across their bodies. They are also known for their long necks and legs. These long legs help them jump about 9 feet into the air, which is perfect for catching birds for them to eat.

Caracal

Caracals are large cats known for their long tufted ears. They are carnivores, and can run up to 50 mph. In fact, they can outrun other fast animals such as ostriches and antelopes!

Arctic Fox

Arctic foxes are able to survive in harsh, cold temperatures thanks to their thick fur. While their fur is usually white, but their fur turns brown in the summer. They are often quite small, no larger than your typical house cat!
