The wild is the hunting ground of the most dangerous predators out there. Some animals are designed for speed and agility which comes in handy in the game of survival.
However there are those animals whose natural design have made them into lean efficient hunting machines. To survive the harsh world of the African savanna, lions, leopards, hyenas and more must constantly be on the hunt.
Predation is an interaction between animals in which one captures and feeds upon another called the prey. The predator is usually the larger and stronger of the two.
Predators are always either carnivores or omnivores. The prey might typically be herbivore but some predators feed on anything they can capture including other predators.
As prey have developed defenses such as mimicry chemical defense camouflage or warning systems in order to evade predators, predators have developed skills and weapons to seek and capture a meal.
