Predator Animals in Kenya
Big 5

Predator animal species have got the unique characteristics and the adaptations that help them to sustain their lives and catch their prey that is they have got sharp teeth, claws and the venom that enhance their ability to their prey, as well the predator animal species do contain the extremely acute sensory organs that help them to find the potential prey that is suited for them. Predators have got the teeth that are used to help them to kill the prey and are used as ‘’knives and forks’’ while enjoying the prey as most of the predators have three kinds of teeth that is incisors, canines, molars, where other species like the crocodiles and sharks have got long, cone shaped teeth as these are used for grasping the prey as they pull it under the water.

Camouflage is also an adaptation that is used by the predators and prey, that is nature provides many ways for the animals to make themselves difficult to see, both the predators and prey do camouflage, prey use it to hide themselves from the predators, and the predators use it to keep their prey from knowing that they are coming after them.

Not all predators are animals but there are also carnivorous plants, such as the Venus fly trap and the pitcher plant, consume insects. Pitcher plants catch their prey in a pool of water containing digestive enzymes, whereas the Venus fly trap captures an insect between the two lobes of a leaf and seals the insect inside with digestive enzymes. These plants absorb nutrients from the insects as they become available during digestion. On a microscopic scale, protozoa and bacteria also consume prey organisms. They play an important role in maintaining population sizes in microbial communities, which promotes the diversity of microorganisms and contributes to a stable community structure.
