Black footed ferrets exact origin is unknown, but they first appeared in North America approximately 100,000 years ago, and came from across the Bering Strait. The black footed ferret is native to North America in the grassland biome and are today found in the Great Plains states such as Montana,… New Mexico, and Arizona where they live on prairie dog towns .The black footed ferret lives in the North American prairie and grassland. There are three distinct areas of prairie - Tallgrass prairie, Mixed-grass prairie and Shortgrass prairie . In the United States, the greatest stretch of grassland is the prairie, extending from the Appalachians in the East to the Rocky Mountains in the West. Being in the center of the North American land mass, far from the moderating influence of major bodies of water, there is a great range of annual temperature .The dominant vegetation in these biotic communities is blue grama, mixed with galleta grass, Indian rice grass, and other grasses. Black footed ferret habitat and food source Black-footed ferrets are carnivores (meat-eaters) and their survival depends on prairie dogs as their main food source. Prairie dogs comprise 90 percent of the diet of black-footed ferrets. A ferret family of 4 will consume an average 763 prairie dogs per year. A prairie dog is as large as or larger than a black-footed ferret. The ferret will attack a prairie dog below ground at night when the prairie dog is sleeping. The ferret places a bite on the neck or throat of the prairie dog to suffocate it. The close confines of the burrow make it difficult for their prey to escape. Black-footed ferrets eat all parts of the prairie dog and have sharp teeth that can easily shear through the prairie dog bones. They also eat small rodents such as mice, eggs and small reptiles. Black footed ferrets do not dig their own burrows, and require the burrows of prairie dogs for shelter and to raise families , sometimes of prairie dogs they have eaten . Prairie dogs are rodents and live in aggregations called towns or colonies in burrows which can be as much as 15 feet deep and 60 feet long and sometimes connect with other burrows. Prairie dogs use prairie and grassland habitat ranging from the mid-west to the western United States. They are considered a key indicator species for the health of prairie and grassland habitat. When the black footed ferret takes a prairie dog burrow to live in, they alter it by backing out the dirt held against its chest and drags the dirt farther from the burrow entrance each time. The result is a trench 8-12 cm wide and up to 3.5 m long. These trenches are formed mostly at night and, if fresh, are a sure sign of the presence of a ferret as no other species of animal living in a dog town leaves this type of structure. The Black-footed ferret has special adaptations, They are extremely, highly specialized predators with powerful jaws. With a bite to the back of the neck of it's prey - the prairie dog, can be twice it's size. The black footed ferret has a long, slender body and short legs that allows them to use the prairie dog's burrow for shelter. They spend a majority of their time in the burrows avoiding predators. Black-footed ferrets are primarily nocturnal and are active in winter. Black footed ferret habitat loss Black-footed ferrets - once ranged over a large area across the Great Plains/Rocky Mountain states and Canadian province and found on black-tailed prairie dog colonies across the Great Plains from southern Canada to northern Mexico, and on white-tailed and Gunnison's prairie dog colonies across the intermountain west. They used to be found in Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, Utah and Wyoming and portions of Canada and Mexico before becoming extinct in the wild. By 1986 they were completely gone from the wild. In the early 1900's humans eradicated prairie dogs and destroyed prairie dog habitat. Ranchers see the prairie dog as a competitor for the grass that cattle eat, so they have poisoned prairie dogs with harmful chemicals that sometimes killed other animals. Also, many prairie dog towns have been plowed over for crop fields or destroyed for human development. Diseases, like sylvatic plague, have also reduced prairie dog populations. Scientists estimated we have lost as much as 98% of the prairie dog habitat that once existed. As human encroachment and other factors reduced the populations of prairie dogs, this also reduced ferret populations. The black footed ferret have been successfully reintroduced to 15 locations in their former range in the states of Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Kansas and Chihuahua, Mexico. Black footed ferret are also exhibited in zoos across North America . You can see a black-footed ferret in a zoo since ferrets are very rare and difficult to see in the wild. Many zoos and several federal agency's visitor centers across North America have black-footed ferrets on display. You can see a live black footed ferret at zoos in: .

Flamingos inhabit the edges of lakes and swamps where they can eat shrimp, algae, and other small creatures that live in shallow water.
It is called a flamingo because it comes from a Latin word called Phoenicopterus ruper , that means pink colored organism.
wood is their food source and normally inside a tree it is dark, so that is where you can normally find them.

There are many types of wasps and there are many areas that they can build their nests but most prefer to make a nest in a hollow tree or around a building of some kind.

No flamingos belong to the bird family and not the reptile family as they have wings.
Flamingos choose regions that have little food for other animals and avoid having many natural predators. They can be the target of large birds that move from place to place. Grown flamingos are not the target but the chicks are vulnerable and the parents must protect them and kept them close by.
no but they have small comb like things called lammelae that strain the tiny food they eat! i am awesome
It is because of all of the seafood that they eat. the food may leave an epic stench.but i bet you smell worse.

Nope. Only a mammiferous is able to produce milk. However, they do produce a milk-like substance from the cells lining their crops which has similar properties to milk. This is used to feed their young until their beaks are fully developed.

Rabbits love habitats that allow them to have plenty of room to move around. The general space requirements should be no less than 2 ft high, 3ft deep, and a good 6 ft long. The rabbit should be able to stand up, turn around, and make a few laps with ease. They do best with temperatures no more than… 80 degrees F, and cannot get wet or have drafts as this will damage their respiratory system. There are some debates as to whether or not wire is a good idea for cage bottoms. With a wood only cage, you would need a rabbit who is very good at using his litter box, but with wire only the waste just goes straight down. However it should be noted that some rabbits get sores on their feet from wire caging. And finally a clean cage is essential. ( Full Answer )
Grass and swampy plants, also plants that you would find in Africa. They eat krill, that's why they are pink.

It depends really on the breed of the cricket, like here in New Zealand they prefer heavily wooded areas that are quite damp; but in tropical areas they prefer places with a fair amount of ventilation that are quite dry but with still enough bush to hide in. Hope this helped! :)
