All mammals have high levels of lactase when they are young - they do, after all, drink their mothers milk. However, this ability to digest lactose generally decreases with age because most mammals do not drink milk in the wild after weaning. For example, there is decreased lactose tolerance in up to 75% of humans (this rises to 90% in some Asian and African countries). The amount of lactase present in the digestive system of any given dog is thought to vary as widely as it does in humans. Even lactose-intolerant dogs probably usually have small amounts of lactase activity in their gut. When there is insufficient lactase activity to process the amount of ingested lactose, the lactose is not broken down into its constituent components and is therefore not absorbed by the dogs intestine. When lactose is not absorbed by the body, unusual digestive symptoms can arise and the animal is said to suffer from \"Lactose Intolerance\".
Marsupials are animals that carry their young ones in a pouch. They have a very small gestation period and the mother continues to feed the baby even when it is fully grown. The common marsupials are the kangaroo, opossum, koala and the wallaby. The platypus is an amazing marsupial animal as it lays eggs and yet belongs to the mammal group. Terrapin which is seemingly similar to a turtle has thinner shells and webbed feet. The unique feature of a terrapin lies in the diamond shaped back.
