What kinds of animals are in the mountains what are their natural defenses against predators?
some animals have alot of predators and most cant get away from them so the defence from a predator is paticually hard!
some plants have thorns, and animals have poison in them
Alpacas are prey animals with very few defenses against predators. They can stomp small animals with their front feet and they can spit their stomach contents (bile soaked grass, Yuck!) at an enemy. Common predators against alpacas are coyotes, cougars, mountain lions, and bears.
The chemical defenses of plants against animals is, when the animal want to eat the plant, the plant will use its chemical defenses
Predators generally go after the easiest/most convenient prey. By that reasoning, predators "select" which animals will survive by allowing the best suited (poisonous/natural defenses) or camoflaged/mimics to survive.
Cacti have their spines that keep animals from resting and eating their fruit
Claws, teeth and size. While the Giant Panda may look cute and cuddly, it is a bear and can defend against most predators except man. Man is the panda's worst enemy.
Animals protect their young against predators who would like to eat them.
Dolphins survive from their predators because they have a special defense against sharks and other animals.
Many animals are the predators of a seahorse - it is a very small animal with very few defenses. Other fish are the main predators, but any other animal would eat a seahorse if they catch it.
Some animals, such as poison dart frogs or the cane toad, are protected against predators because they are deadly poisonous if eaten. Some animals prefer spines or shells, making them unattackable, such as porcupines and turtles. The majority of animals try to protect themselves from predators by simply outrunning their predators, or a few are big and formidable enough they can sometimes fight off predators. Examples of herbivores that would fight off a predator include… Read More
The defenses an animal uses to deter a predator vary between animals. Some use their enormous size to ward off attack while others use camouflage. Many animals can change their coloring to make them look poisonous and others emit a foul smell or taste to dissuade a predator from taking a bite.
Marine Iguanas are found only on the Galapagos Islands. They have very few defenses against introduced animals because they have evolved in an environment with very few natural predators. Rats prey on the eggs, cats prey on their young, and dogs prey on even the adults.

Yes either to take down prey or fend off predators
The adaptations of animals in the Piedmont region allow them to survive. Most of the animals have hooves that allow them to climb up the mountains. They are have good speed which allows them to run away from predators.
Animals have developed several ways to escape from predators. Running is one way, most animals will run from danger. Fighting is another. Teeth and claws often deter small predators from getting a meal. Camouflage is used to hide from those animals that would do others harm, fawns are spotted when born for just that purpose. Still others have developed natural defenses such as toads who urinate bad tasting liquid and skunks who smell really bad.
all animals are predators of the chinchilla
All animals are consumers; some animals are predators.
Alpacas are prey animals. They have little, if any, defenses against most predators. They are sometimes used as guards against small predators... raccoons, fox, coyotes, but anything larger and they just have no real way to protect. They can stomp their front feet to trample and they can spit green goo that smells really bad, that's it. Their larger cousin the llama is a much better guard. Their size is off-putting for most small predators… Read More
Animals use or are born with camouflage this is to protect themselves against predators. Though some have this so they can easily hide and catch other animals to eat.
Invasive species are plants and animals that have migrated or be placed in places were they are not native. This is very harmful to the native flora and fauna who have no natural defenses against the invaders.
predators that is the one who eat other animals like them or other meaty animals
Mountains goats and mountain sheep are not preying animals (predators). They eat grass, lichen, and other delicious plant life.
Adult blue whales have no natural predators. They are too big and too strong to be attacked and killed by any animal. However, Orca's (Killer Whales) are known to attack and kill youngsters. A group of Orca's can easily hunt a baby blue whale if its mother is not around. Otherwise, they have no natural predators Humans are the biggest threat to blue whales. Nearly 90% of the world population of these animals were wiped… Read More
Many predators themselves have no predators, such as lions and tigers. Animals such as elephants ahve no true predator. Their predator is humans.
Dibblers, though small, are exceedingly aggressive and will fight for their survival against predators. Animals which eat dibblers include owls, quolls and introduced predators such as foxes and feral cats.
Predators~ the animals that hunt on other animals. Prey~ the animals that get hunted upon.
They have poison glands behind their eyes. Animals who attempt to eat them usually spit them out (if they are lucky).
top predators are animals that eat other animals but don't get eaten themselves
No. Llamas are prey animals, not predators.
Does a black bear have any protective markings or colorings that help it to be protected against predators?
Bears do not have or need such markings; they are large, powerful animals, and any prospective predators can easily see how large a bear is.
An adult giant panda is the largest animal in its ecosystem so has no predators. However, young pandas are sometimes taken by jackals or snow leopards.
Yes most animals are afraid of their predators as the predator wants to kill and eat them.

These animals are called predators, and the animals they hunt are called prey. Animals that hunt other animals can be called "carnivores," "omnivores," predators," and maybe "hunters." Animals that hunt other animals for food are called predators; animals that eat meat are carnivores. I think you are looking for the word "predator". Wolfs,bears,sharks,algators
No. Yaks are herbivores and thus prey animals, not predators. Predators are hunters, not prey animals.
The giant panda is the largest animal in its habitat so has no predators. Such animals as the snow leopard and jackal will kill and eat young pandas, however.
Animals change their colors so predators can't see them. In other words, by changing their colors, animals are hiding from their predators.
Carnivores . Predators.
