MAMMAL VOCALIZATIONS"'

Old World mammal sounds!

MONOTREMES

Platypus evolution
Platypus feeding, locomotion, venomous spurs, reproduction, etc.

PILOSA

Giant anteater, Myrmecophaga – my personal favorite mammal in the world. I was once attacked by one at the Bronx Zoo…
Giant anteater with baby on back
Baby giant anteater – cutest, weirdest animal on the planet
Two-toed sloths, courtship, near mating

CINGULATA

Armadillo foraging, using olfaction

TUBULIDENTATA

Aardvark foraging - note use of nose and olfaction to find prey

FEEDING

Giraffe feeding - tongue is used to strip leaves off of spiny Acacia trees in Africa
Lesser anteater (Tamandua) feeding on ants in trees
Pangolin feeding
Aardvark feeding - amazing tongue footage!

LOCOMOTION

Platypus locomotion - note laterally sprawled posture
Armadillo gathering grass
Armadillo locomotion
Lion skeleton animation showing mobile pectoral girdle and spinal flexion
Cheetah animated model showing extreme spinal flexion and increase in stride length
Baboon locomotion
Horse locomotion made from sequential still photos - note 4 feet off ground during gallop and relatively stiff spine
Kangaroo bipedal hopping - with each hop tendons stretch, then release elastic energy for rebound

PREDATION

Cheetah vs. gazelle
Harpy eagle vs. sloth
Golden eagle vs. mountain goat
Crowned eagle vs. water chevrotain
Golden Eagle vs. cougar
Jaguar vs. anaconda
Hunter vs. deer
Water buffalo vs. lion vs. croc
Jaguar vs. large caiman!
