These guys maneuver and hunt with great precision using echolocation, the animal equivalent of sonar. They devour any insect that crosses it flight path, eating thousands each night. These bats live in three different roosting sites: day roosts, night roost and hibernation roosts.
These guys are a solitary, territorial species, with each one having an established range in which it lives and feeds. In this area, they dig a tunnel system, with tunnels ranging anywhere from 2 to 20 meters in length, along with many side-tunnels. There is usually only one entrance to the burrow, although they may create a smaller one to escape with.
These animals are mainly herbivores, but also scavenges. It is usually considered nocturnal, but in cold periods it is more commonly seen during daylight hours, and it has been suggested it is diurnal in regions where protected from humans. They live in herds of up to twenty animals consisting of females and their offspring, but usually also including a single old male.
Big Cat Rescue’s mission is to provide the best possible home for the animals in their care and try to stop the flow of exotic cats needing sanctuary by educating the public about the plight of the animals and supporting stronger laws to protect them. The non-profit organization is: Accredited by the Global Federation of Sanctuaries, Certified by Independent Charities of America as a “Best in America Charity”, a Member of the WorldSociety for Protection of Animals, Rated 4 Stars (highest rating) by Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management.
They feed at night, drifting inshore with the tide to snap up burrow-dwelling shellfish and worms. They have an acute sense of smell, and uses it to track down prey in the often murky water of its habitat. They live in coastal waters, as well as lower reaches of rivers, from Arctic Scandinavia south through Europe to North Africa.
It is a nocturnal and arboreal animal, found in lowland rain-forests with continuous canopy where they can move to different places without the need to descend from trees. When threatened, these guys defend themselves by standing on its hind legs and holding its forefeet close to its face so it can strike any animal that tries to get close with its sharp claws.
The long front horn averages 2-feet in length but can actually reach up to 5-feet in length. These guys usually move at about 15-mph in a graceful trot, but can gallop at up to 25 mph for shorter distances. These guys are almost matched with the hippo for the title of the second largest land mammal after the elephant. While the hippo may out weigh this rhino species, they are not as tall as the rhino.
One More Generation’s “Plastic Awareness Week” program is helping to save America’s children from our Plastic Pollution. If your interested in having our two young founders come out to your school or church to teach their program, send us an email. We would love to share what we have learned 😉

Olivia and Carter were recently invited to teach their Plastic Awareness program to the kids attending this years VBS classes at the Fayetteville First United Methodist Church in Fayetteville GA. Pastor Kristen Heiden and her amazing staff and volunteers host probably one of the areas most popular VBS summer camps. This year our two young founders were invited to share their Plastic Awareness program to all the attending students.
They move slowly, feeding mostly on algae. Sea otters, wolf eels, triggerfish, and other predators feed on them. Their “roe” (actually the gonads) is a delicacy in many cuisines. These guys are sensitive to touch, light, and chemicals. Although they do not have eyes or eye spots, recent research suggests that their entire body might function as one compound eye.
These fish are able to move their eyes independently, and many species can change the color or intensity of their patterns in response to environmental changes. In these respects they are somewhat similar to the terrestrial chameleon. Although most of these fish are drab, many have bright colors and distinctive markings and make no attempt to hide from predators.
