Show 1205 Animals – Vertebrates – Mammals – Herbivores
Our first classification of mammals is herbivores. These are animals with a backbone that eat only plant materials. Plant eaters usually have large incisor teeth for cutting and chewing plants. They have large molars for grinding tough plants and they have a different digestive system to allow for slow digestion of plant fibers. Elephants are our first project – it’s hard to believe that an animal this large eats plants. We’ve designed a clay frame that copies an elephant’s hide. From large to small; the next herbivore is a comical squirrel sock puppet. Then, we’ve got more fuzzy, giant pipe cleaners to transform into a Zebra. Last, it’s your favorite mammal t- shirt from panthers to birds made into a tote or duffel bag.
