Some Examples of animal diets A tiger's favorite prey is deer and wild boar. Wolves predominately prey on hoofed animals including  Deer, moose, Bison, Elk, and caribou. The white-tailed deer is an herbivore or plant eater. It  follows well-used trails to its feeding areas. It feeds in the  early morning hours and in the late afternoon.

Desmond Morris, THE NAKED APE Very little, seems to be the answer. It has all been too  quick, too sudden, for any fundamental biological advances  to occur.  Superficially they seem to have occurred, it is true, but this  is largely make-believe.  Behind the facade of modern city life there is the same old  naked ape. Only the names have been changed:  for 'hunting' read 'working',  for 'hunting grounds' read 'place of business',  for 'home base' read house',  for 'pair-bond' read 'marriage',  For 'mate', read 'wife', and so on.

Mammoth Hunt: 14 000 Years Later In September of the past year, Russian scientists made  sensational findings on the famous mammoth’ burial site  Lugovskoe in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area.  Particularly, about 300 human-shaped stone objects and a  mammoth’s vertebra pierced by a spear or javelin head  were found.  The pierced vertebra is the first indisputable proof that men
