Whale are sea-living mammals. They, therefore, breathe air but cannot survive on land. Some species are very large indeed and the blue whale, which can exceed 30 metres length , is the largest animal to have lived on earth. Superficially, the whale looks rather like a fish, but there are important differences in its external structure. Its tail consists of a pair of broad, flat horizontal paddles, compared with the tail of fish that is vertical. It has a single nostril on top of its large, broad head. The skin is smooth and shiny and beneath it lies of fat. This is up to 30 cm in thickness and serves to conserve heat and body fluid.

Piranha fish are the fiercest animals in the world. They live in the fresh water rivers of South America, from Venezuela to Northern Argentina. These fish hunt in groups, called schools. They usually eat other fish smaller than themselves. Sometimes Piranhas will attack and eat each other.
There are about 18 kinds of piranha fish. Only four kinds attack man. Piranhas have large head and short thick bodies. They are usually about 20 cm ( 9 inches long) but one kind can be as much as 60 cm (two feet). It lives in the Sao Francisco river from Eastern Brazil. It is one of the most dangerous fish.
The most noticeable thing about Piranha fish is the large mouth. The mouth has a lot of triangular teeth with sharp point. The points pierce the skin of the prey. The razor sharp edges of the teeth chop out pieces of flesh. The teeth of the upper and lower jaws fit together like scissors. The muscles moving the jaws are big and very powerful.
On the back of the Piranha fish there is a ridge called a keel. There is another keel running along it belly. The tail is slender and muscular. Its tail fins are broad. All these features held the piranha to swim fast through the water. The piranha fish eat a large South American rat-like animal, called a Capybara, weighing 50 kilos ( 100 ponds) to a skeleton in less than 60 seconds.

Cheetahs are members of the cat family and are the world’s fastest land animals. They inhabit open grasslands and scrub in Africa, southern Asia and Middle East.
Cheetahs are often mistaken for leopards and have many similar features.
Their distinguishing marks are the long, teardrop-shaped lines on each side of the nose from the corner of the eyes to the mouth.
The animals have muscular and powerful bodies which are aerodynamically perfect for short, fast runs. Their bendy backs keep the body flexible as they sprint.
They can accelerate from standing to 40 mph in three strides and to a full speed of 70 mph within seconds. Cheetah’s feet are like running shoes and have grips and spikes to dig into the ground. The grips are special ridges on the animal’s footpads and the claws act as spikes. These claws stay out all the time. This is different from other cats, whose claws tuck away in special sheaths in their paws.
Cheetah are carnivores and eat gazelle and small antelope. A long tail helps the cheetah keep its balance as it serves after its prey, using large eyes that point forward to judge distance accurately. Once the cheetah has pounched, the victim is gripped by the throat to stop it breathing. However, the cheetah has weak jaws and small teeth and cannot always protect its kills or its young, especially if tired out after a run.
Female cheetahs gave birth to an average of three young that they rear by themselves. Once fully grown, the animals usually live alone, though males sometimes form small groups. Most cheetahs live about twelve years.
Cheetah are now an endangered species and many conservationists are trying to help protect the habitats of these interesting creatures.

The white pelican is one of the most successful fish eating birds. The success is largely due to its command hunting behaviour. A group, perhaps two dozens birds, will gather in a curved arc some distance offshore, beating the water furiously with their wings, driving the fish before them.
When the water is shallow enough for the birds to reach the fish, the formation breaks up as each bird dip its bill into the water to scoop up its meal. As the bird lifts its head, the water drains from its bill leaving the fish which are then swallowed.
Pelicans are among the oldest group of birds, Fossils of this genus have been found dating back 40 millions years.
