Capri-Sun is going wild!
The new Capri-Sun Animal Edition is here.

 
 
Capri-Sun is launching another special edition in-store again this year. And this time it’s all about the animal kingdom. Eleven different animals from all over the world are featured on the Capri-Sun pouch and invite you to discover exciting facts about their lives. Did you know that a seal can sleep in the water? Or that at birth a koala is only the size of a gummy bear? Scroll down to see what else you can learn!
 
 
 
Panda
The shy panda bear prefers to stay deep in the damp forest, nibbling on bamboo, its primary source of food. At a size of 1.70 metres, a full-grown panda can weigh around 150 kilograms and consume 22.5 kilograms of bamboo in a single day, which is an impressive 15 per cent of its body weight.

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!

Tiger
The tiger is a solitary creature that prefers to spend its time alone, patrolling its territory. Visits by other tigers are never welcome! The tiger marks all of the trees in its territory with urine and very specific scratches, so that any other tigers know to keep their distance.

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.
 
Seal
The seal is really in its element in the water. Seals can zip through the sea at speeds of up to 35 kilometres per hour and dive to depths of up to 200 metres while hunting for fish. These lively animals can even hold their breath for 30 minutes with ease. They have crystal clear vision underwater and their especially sensitive whiskers function much like antennae, allowing them to feel even the slightest movement underwater.

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.

Koala
The adorable koala is a real sleepyhead, slumbering away around 22 hours a day. The two hours it spends awake are dedicated to eating – almost exclusively eucalyptus leaves and bark. But koalas are also picky eaters. Of the around 600 species of eucalyptus in Australia, they only like the taste of two or three.

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.
 
 
 
Lion
With his unmistakable, mighty roar, the lion can frighten off any competitors that have entered his territory uninvited. That’s how he protects his family. Family? That’s right! Lions are the only species of big cats to live in a large group. A pride of lions comprises several females, their young and two to four younger males.

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.

Gorilla
Gorilla babies love nothing more than to romp around and play! And there’s more than enough time for the little ones to explore and discover, as gorilla families spend the entire day leisurely roaming the forest in search of food – with plenty of breaks along the way.

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.
 
Pangolin
With its entire body covered in thick scales, the pangolin looks much like a pine cone with legs. The older it gets, the harder and sharper its scales become. When threatened by a hungry predator, the pangolin quickly tucks its head between its hind legs and rolls into a ball.

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.

Macaw
Did you know that macaws can be left or right-footed? That’s a sign of intelligence, which these clever birds with colourful plumage have in spades. The macaw’s feet are actually claws and its most important tool, allowing it to climb, hold on tight and open nuts and seeds.

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.

Penguin
Is the penguin a bird or a fish? That’s a very good question. Even though it swims instead of flying, the penguin is actually a bird and simply uses its wings to swim and dive. And that’s where the penguin really excels!

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.
 
Leguan
With their elongated scales on the length of their spine, their colourful skin and their long tails, iguanas look much like little dragons or dinosaurs. There are eight different iguana species, many of which live on the ground. Others make their homes in trees and in rocky areas, and there’s even a species that lives in the water. There are tiny iguanas just 10 centimetres in size, as well as huge ones that measure 2 metres in length.

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.

Sloth
The sloth does nothing but hang around all day. But that’s not to say it’s lazy! In fact, it has merely adapted its lifestyle to its habitat with great success. The sloth lives high up in the treetops of the South American rainforest, where it hangs belly up from the branches and feeds on the leaves, flowers and fruits that grow on the trees.

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.
