Life of Canines:
The Life of Canines program will start by taking a look at the five species of canines that live in the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains. We’ll discuss where they can be found, how big they are, and other general information. Then, we will take a deeper look at each of the five species!
For each of the canines, we will learn about the habitat(s) that you can find them within. Some of these species can be found across multiple habitats, while others are more specialized. Next, we’ll discuss their food webs; taking a look at some of their most common prey. We’ll also learn about the amazing adaptations that each of these species has. We'll learn about their adaptations to live in their unique habitat(s) and to find their unique food. We’ll conclude the program by talking about the social groups of these canines. Which of them live in packs… and which of them are solitary.
