alligator egg manipulation
temperature (The sex of the offspring is determined by the temperature in the nest and is fixed within 7 to 21 days of the start of incubation. Incubation temperatures of 86 °F or lower produce a clutch of females; those of 93 °F or higher produce entirely males)
Manatees cannot survive in water
below 60F (Prolonged exposure to water temperatures below 68F can bring about "cold stress syndrome" and death)
(Whitetail) deers eat
various vegetation (herbivores, eating a large varieties of food; leaves, grass, bark, acorns, and other plant material.)
a new set of antlers grow in the spring ( take three to five months to fully develop.They initially have a layer of skin, called "velvet," which is shed once the antlers become fully grown.

gray wolf (scientists believe they evolved from just a handful of gray wolves tamed by humans living in or near China less than 15,000 years ago. The earliest archaeological evidence of dog domestication dates back 12,000 years ago in Israel. Intensive breeding by humans over the last 500 years is responsible for the dramatic differences in appearance among modern dogs)
studies suggests the progenitors of today's cats split from their wild counterparts more than 100,000 years ago, The earliest archaeological evidence of cat domestication dates back 9,500 years.
Tuberculosis (TB) quarantine (for primates)
31 days (quarantine, a minimum of three tuberculin skin tests are performed and positive animals are destroyed)
