Carnivores rank high on the scale of intelligence among mammals.
The vast majority of species are terrestrial, but the pinnipeds are highly adapted to life in the water.
Such areas may sometimes be marked by secretions produced by anal or other scent glands and by deposition of feces in prominent locations.
There is a wide range of social patterns among carnivores.
As a result, the surviving animals are better fed and less subject to disease.
Many of these predators dig dens and provide burrows in which other forms of wildlife can take refuge.
