Allosaurus
A 30-foot-long, two-legged cross between a crocodile and a mountatin lion. Add a huge skull and the predatory behavior of a shark. That's Allosaurus
This was how a 1993 issue of National Geographic appropriately described this remarkable animal. Allosaurus was the most common & successful predator of the late Jurassic. These theropods are often referred to as "the wolves of the Jurassic" because they so were so widespread (A. fragilis is the only theropod species positively identified on more than one continent) and they are believed to have been pack hunters. Thousands of fossilized bones (in a few cases,nearly complete skeletons) found throughout North America has made Allosaurus one the most well understood of all predatory dinosaurs.

Red Fox
The red fox has the largest geographic distribution of any carnivore in the world. Primarily nocturnal, it is a shy and nervous hunter and scavenger that will eat everything from insects and small mammals to berries and even human garbage. The red fox has acute hearing that can pick up the low-frequency sounds of digging and scraping in underground burrows. When food items are abundant, the fox caches them for harder times. The primary social unit is the mated pair, and their litters are born in dens dug by the adults or taken over from other mammals, such as badgers, and then ...

Striped Dolphin
Identified by the lateral stripes that originate at their eyes, the striped dolphins are sometimes seen swimming alongside large ships off California and in the Atlantic, a behavior known as bow-riding. In the eastern tropical Pacific, where they are also found, they tend to be shyer. These dolphins are energetic swimmers, sometimes moving upside down and jumping as high as twenty feet (6 m) out of the water to do backward somersaults. Social animals, they are commonly found in schools of up to five hundred individuals. The size of the school depends on geographic location; tho...
