Carnivorans | Carnivora

Carnivorans, or Carnivora, are a class of mammals widely distributed across all land and water bodies with characteristics evolved around eating flesh. They can be found in forests, deserts, grasslands, mountains, and even scrublands. They come in a variety of body sizes and shapes. Their coat is thick, luxurious, and in imaginable shades of colors. Their skull is well-defined, their stomach simple, and their brains are relatively large. Besides, they are fairly intelligent. For reproduction, they have a polygamous or monogamous mating system and may be led by a dominant female or male. Some are solitary, while others live in social groupings. Most females give birth and take care of the young.

What do species in the order of Carnivora have in common?

Species in the order Carnivora, whether cats or dogs, eat only flesh. That means they have to venture out and hunt for food unless domesticated. Among the most common physical features possessed by members of this species are powerful jaws, limbs, and agility. Besides, their digestive system is less complicated compared to herbivores.

What is the largest land animal in the Carnivora order?

Bears are the largest among land carnivores. You can find them in the inhospitable environments in the Northern Hemisphere. Male polar bears can weigh up to 700 kgs and can hunt both on land and at sea. This is made possible by a body covered in thick fur and fat reserves that help them to easily swim and dive in cold waters.

Are all animals in the Carnivora order carnivores?

Carnivores eat a wide range of meat dishes but not all of them depend only on meat and fish. For example, pandas are carnivores but feed on plant materials. Their digestive system is suited to digest bamboo shoots and leaves. There are also cases of domesticated dogs and cats eating corn.

The Olinguito has a body height between 6.3”-9.1” (16-23 cm), body width of 3.5”-5.7” (9-14.5 cm), and tail length of 13.2”-16.7” (33.5-42.5 cm).

Binturong (Arctictis binturong)
Scale illustration of an average Binturong compared to other Viverrid species

The Binturong (Arctictis binturong) is a viverrid that lives in tall forests, foothills and hills with good tree cover, and primary and secondary lowland forests in South Asia. However, as they are not very nimble, the Binturong frequently descends to the ground when moving between trees. They are stoutly built with a thick coat of coarse black hair, a bushy and prehensile tail, and a short and pointed muzzle. The ears are short and rounded and edged with white, and the feet are five-toed with strong claws and bare soles. As omnivores, the Binturong eats small mammals, fish, earthworms, insects, and fruits.

The Binturong has a body length in the range of 23.6”-37.8” (60-96 cm) and total weight of 19.8-52.9 lb (9-24 kg). The Binturong has a body height between 13.4”-21.25” (34-54 cm), body width of 10.2”-15.75” (26-40 cm), and tail length of 22”-35” (56-89 cm). The typical lifespan of the Binturong is between 10-27 years.

Bat-Eared Fox (Otocyon megalotis)

The Bat-Eared Fox (Otocyon megalotis) is a species that was named for its large ears that are used for hearing and regulating its temperature. They have sand-gray fur, lighter fur on their underside, and darker fur along their eyes and muzzle. They typically live in the African Savana. Bat-Eared Foxes are mostly insectivores and eat ants, beetles, crickets, grasshoppers, millipedes, moths, scorpions, and spiders. The Bat-Eared fox is nocturnal 85% of the time even though they are highly social animals and easily gets along with others.

Bat-Eared Foxs have a shoulder height of 12”-15” (30-38 cm), body length between 18”-26” (46-66 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 7-12 lb (3-5 kg). The typical lifespan of a Bat-Eared Fox is 5-7 years in the wild) and up to 12-16 years when raised in captivity.

Harp Seal (Pagophilus groenlandicus)
Scale illustration of an average Harp Seal compared to a human and similar seals

Harp seals, usually loved by commercial hunters, are sleek swimmers inhabiting the Arctic oceans and North Atlantic oceans with their name arising from the curved black patch on their back which looks like a harp. They prefer to swim and invest a meager time on land. They are also called Greenland seals or saddleback seals. Harp seals are true seals or earless seals characterized by pure black eyes, silver-grey coatings, and black harp markings. Males are relatively larger than females, with darker heads and better refined harp markings. Additionally, these animals migrate and display a preference for prey which is usually fish and invertebrates. Harp seals are social and regularly form huge colonies during mating or pupping.

Harp Seals have a total length between 5.92’-6.5’ (1.8-2 m), body height of 18.5”-19.7” (44-50 cm), and width of 20.1”-21.7” (51-55 cm). The typical weight of the Harp Seal is in the range of 254-310 lb (115-140 kg). Harp Seals have lifespans between 20-35 years.
