Surviving in the wild is a priority for all living creatures. Whether small or large in appearance, all animals have their own unique way to survive.
When not fouraging for food, they like to be invisible by staying still for a long period of time, watching and waiting untill you have passed by.
Other strategies they use are:
- Living in numbers: these animals feel safe when staying in a group (example: Red Howler Monkeys, American Golden Plovers, Capybaras and Gian Otters)
- Relying on their speed: to escape from their predators (example: Hummingbirds, Collared Peccaries, Deer, Agoutis, Tapitis and Antbirds)
- Strength: either to catch their prey or defend oneselves, these animals rely on their strength (Anacondas, Harpy Eagles, Jaguars and Lowland Tapirs)
- Camouflage: adapting with their surroundings, these animals are masters of disguise (example: Caimans, Fer - de - lance, Nightjars, Three - toed Sloth, Green Ibises and Tree Runners)
- Travel buddies: usually small birds that are looking for shelter or 'food', in return they warn their big friend for danger (example: Black Caracaras on Lowland Tapirs and Giant Cowbirds on Capybaras)
