Capri-Sun is going wild!The new Capri-Sun Animal Edition is here.
But why does it eat so much? Pandas can only digest around a fifth of what they eat. And to make sure they get enough nutrition, they have to eat as much as possible!
The tiger’s stripes play a key role in differentiation, as each animal’s pattern is unique. It’s true that no two tigers are alike. The Bengal tiger is the second largest of the four tiger species that roam the earth. A full-grown Bengal tiger weighs in at around 250 kilograms and measures 3 metres in length.
Did you know that seals can even sleep in the water? They simply float up and down, allowing them to take a breath of fresh air whenever they need it. A full-grown seal can measure up to 180 centimetres in length and weigh up to 150 kilograms.
By the way, koalas are marsupials – not bears. Like kangaroos, a baby koala spends the first few months of its life in its mother’s protective pouch. When born, it’s roughly the size of a gummy bear! A full-grown male koala weighs around 14 kilograms and is 85 centimetres tall.
By the way, it’s the female lions who are responsible for hunting and killing prey. And that’s no small feat, as a full-grown lion can eat up to 10 kilograms of meat a day. The powerful animal can grow to 2.50 metres in length and weigh up to 225 kilograms.
Each gorilla family is led by an experienced male, who is called a silverback due to the silver hair on his back. He can grow to 1.80 metres in height and weigh up to 200 kilograms. The family also comprises a few young males, females and their young. When night falls, the gorilla family simply settles in for the night wherever they happen to be. The females construct cosy little nests on trees for themselves and their young to sleep in, whilst the males make themselves comfortable on the forest floor.
There are species of pangolins that live on the ground and some that make their homes in trees. Their diet primarily consists of ants and termites. Depending on species and age, a pangolin can grow to 30 to 67 centimetres in size, with its tail almost as long as that. This scaly anteater can weigh between 3 and 17 kilograms, depending on its size.
The intelligent birds are also known for their ability to talk. Take for example Douglas, the scarlet macaw that appeared in a Pippi Longstocking movie. He could say 50 words in Swedish. The most talented talker of them all is the hyacinth macaw, which also happens to be the largest and can grow to 1 metre in length and weigh up to 1.5 kilograms.
Hunting for fish and krill, an Adélie penguin can dive to ocean depths of up to 175 metres. A southern rockhopper penguin can dart through the waves at speeds of up to 40 kilometres per hour. And that’s despite its small size. At 45 to 58 centimetres in height, the southern rockhopper penguin weighs just 4.5 kilograms. There are a total of 18 different species of penguins, all of which live in the southern hemisphere, including six on the ice of the Antarctic.
For his digestion the iguana needs the right body temperature. But because the reptil is unable to maintain a constant internal body temperature itself, it has to move back and forth between sunlight and shade. And what do iguanas eat? When they’re young, iguanas love insects. But as they grow older, they become vegetarian and prefer plants.
It doesn’t have to go far to find its dinner and, because this plant-based diet is low in protein, it wouldn’t even have the energy to do so. The sloth can turn its head 180 degrees, so it can always keep an eye on its surroundings. Sloths can grow to 75 metres in size and weigh up to 9 kilograms.
