Just a place to store some basic animal info on everything since I am too lazy to keep it on WordPad and share it when needed. Most of this is copy and pasted.
Body Length: 61–182 cm (2.00–5.97 ft)
Lifespan: Six to eight years.
Habitait: Overgrown fields, forest openings, trees, palmetto flatwoods, and abandoned or seldom-used buildings and farms.
Breeding/Reproduction: Egg-laying occurs slightly more than a month after mating, with 12–24 eggs deposited into a warm, moist, hidden location. Once laid, the adult snake abandons the eggs and does not return to them. The eggs are oblong with leathery, flexible shells. About 10 weeks after laying, the young snakes use a specialized scale called an egg tooth to slice slits in the egg shell, from which they emerge at about 5 in long.
Diet and Behavior: Like all snakes, corn snakes are carnivorous and in the wild, they eat every few days. While most corn snakes eat small rodents, such as the white-footed mouse, they may also eat other reptiles or amphibians, or climb trees to find unguarded bird eggs. They capture their prey using constriction. Tail 'vibrates' when threatened.
Colors: Elkener, look it up on Wikipedia, this is long enough already.
Extra: They can be distinguished from copperheads by their brighter colors, slender build, round pupils, and lack of heat-sensing pits. In colder regions, snakes hibernate during winter. However, in the more temperate climate along the coast, they shelter in rock crevices and logs during cold weather. They hunt less during cold weather.
Size: About 3 feet from the shoulder
Lifespan: 6-14 years, 4.5 years usually due to unnatural causes
Behavior: Raises it's tail to alert that a predator or threat has been spotted. They have dichromatic vision, unlike humans, meaning that they cannot differentiate between colors like orange and red, but can still see color.
Colors: The deer's coat is a reddish-brown in the spring and summer and turns to a grey-brown throughout the fall and winter. The deer can be recognized by the characteristic white underside to its tail.
Antlers: Length and branching of antlers are determined by nutrition, age, and genetics. Rack growth tends to be very important from late spring until about a month before velvet sheds. Healthy deer in some areas that are well-fed can have eight-point branching antlers as yearlings (1.5 years old).
Diet: White-tailed deer eat large amounts of food, commonly eating legumes and foraging on other plants, including shoots, leaves, cacti (in deserts), prairie forbs, and grasses. They also eat acorns, fruit, and corn. Their special stomachs allow them to eat some things humans cannot, such as mushrooms and poison ivy. Their diets vary by season according to availability of food sources. They also eat hay, grass, white clover, and other foods they can find in a farm yard. Though almost entirely herbivorous, white-tailed deer have been known to opportunistically feed on nesting songbirds, field mice, and birds trapped in mist nets, if the need arises.
Predators: Coyotes, Bobcats, Alligators, Bears, Jaguars
Size: About 3 feet long, like a medium-sized dog.
Social and Reproduction Behaviors: The basic social unit of a coyote pack is a family containing a reproductive female. However, unrelated coyotes may join forces for companionship, or to bring down prey too large to attack singly. The newly mated pair then establishes a territory and either constructs their own den or cleans out abandoned badger, marmot, or skunk earths. The gestation period is 63 days, with an average litter size of six, though the number fluctuates depending on coyote population density and the abundance of food. The incisors erupt at about 12 days, the canines at 16, and the second premolars at 21. Their eyes open after 10 days, by which point the pups become increasingly more mobile, walking by 20 days, and running at the age of six weeks. The parents begin supplementing the pup's diet with regurgitated solid food after 12–15 days. By the age of four to six weeks, when their milk teeth are fully functional, the pups are given small food items such as mice, rabbits, or pieces of ungulate carcasses. Unlike wolf pups, coyote pups begin seriously fighting (as opposed to play fighting) prior to engaging in play behavior. A common play behavior includes the coyote "hip-slam". By three weeks of age, coyote pups bite each other with less inhibition than wolf pups. By the age of four to five weeks, pups have established dominance hierarchies, and are by then more likely to play rather than fight.
Territorial & Sheltering Behaviors:
The territories are a few square miles in each direction, depending on how much food there is and local competition.
