WATERCOLOR PAINTING FOR YOUTH: ENDANGERED SPECIES

Monday, October 17, 2022


QUESTION: What is an "Endangered Species"?

ANSWER:    An endangered species is an animal or plant that's considered at risk of extinction. Extinction is the state
                   or fact of being rendered nonexistent, physically unsound, or useless.  In the U.S. alone, there are 1675
                   endangered species. Species become endangered for two main reasons: loss of habitat and loss of genetic
                   variation.  We will also discuss extinction.


Leopard
The beautiful unique spots of the leopard will present a beautiful watercolor. The leopard is solitary. Male and female  leopards cross territories, but only to mate. It has been reported that some male leopards stay with female leopards after mating and may even help with rearing the young. Several males sometimes follow and fight over a female. Nimble-footed and strong, leopards carry and hide unfinished kills so that they are not taken by other predators.
