FELINES

By: Jared & Pablo

They are 4 legged animals with whiskers, paws, and fur. A cat has 250 bones in his body, compared to 206 in our bodies. They use more than 500 muscles to leap, jump, and sprint. They have five toes on each front paw, but only four toes on each back paw. The cat adjusts her grip on her prey until she feels a tiny depression in the neck, just behind the skull. They lose almost as much fluid in the saliva while grooming themselves as they do through urination.
