Physical Characteristics, Diet, Behavior And Reproduction, Carnivores And People, Conservation StatusGEOGRAPHIC RANGE, HABITAT

Carnivores are found throughout the world. Some, however, are not naturally occurring but have been introduced to some areas.

Carnivores are found both on land and sea. Although most terrestrial carnivores live on land, the polar bear spends most of its time on sea ice, while the palm civet is arboreal (a tree-dweller). The sea otter lives exclusively in the water, as opposed to other marine carnivores who forage in the sea and breed on land.
