Predators and Prey from Stone Age times

Published by under Science

Today we looked at some skulls of some modern predators and prey. The pupils then drew wooly mammoths and sabre toothed cats as examples of a herbivore and a carnivore from Stone Age times.

    Did you know that a sabre tooth tiger is actually called a sabre tooth cat because a normal tiger is a big cat because it is part of the cat species.

      Very interesting Samson. Is a sabre tooth cat a prey or a predator?

    This is a prey because it has eyes at the front and side so that they would no if there’s predators around.

        Also a prey has flat teeth for grinding plants and they don’t chase after animals like predaror.

    We did drawling of a predator or a prey. I learnt that a predator has its eyes at the front, a prey has its eyes at the front. I also learnt that a woolly mammoth is a prey.

    In since we explored what skulls were and that a sabertoof tiger is actually a cat. We did paintings of sabertoofs and woolly mammoths. A prediter has eyes on the front so it can see pray and a pray has eyes on the side so it can see all around in case a predictor comes.

        Molly says: Predators have sharp teeth and prey have flat teeth so they can eat grass and plants. Predator has sharp teeth so it can eat meat inside the prey.

        Excellent! Tigers are cats and so are sabre tooths. But that doesn’t mean sabre tooths are tigers!!!! Does that make sense?!

    Predator for anything smaller than it but bigger than it like a megaladon or a t-Rex or a giant crocodile.

      Excellent Samson, so animals can be both a predator and prey. Well thought out!

    A predator is a animal who eats small animals and the small animals are called prey

      They might not have all died in pain – although the ones that sank into the tar pits in California will have!
