Foxes, coyotes, and bobcats are all medium sized predators sometimes known as mesopredators. A smorgasbord of food options is available in cities: garbage, garden food, rodents, birds, pets, road-kill, and food that people leave out – even pet food (Bateman 2012).
Foxes, coyotes, and bobcats are all predators, but they have different eating habits, especially when they live in cities. Red foxes can get up to 60% of their diet from human sources and one study found remains of human food or food packaging in 62% of red fox scat (i.e.
Kit foxes and red foxes have been observed eating the food left at cat feeding stations in Bakersfield, CA (Harrison 2011). Coyotes in the city take advantage of some human-sourced food (only about 2 to 11% of their diet), but get most of their calories from hunting and foraging. If you didn’t already have enough reason to keep your cat indoors: up to 13% of an urban coyote’s diet may consist of cats (Bateman 2012). Fruit was found in 23% of Chicago coyote scats and 43% of urban Washington state coyote scats (Bateman 2012). In wild areas they are opportunistic hunters, eating a wide variety of mammals (from mice to deer), reptiles, birds, fish, insects, and eggs (Rubin 2006). In order to establish a sustainable population, urban mammals need a safe place to breed, rest, and raise their young.
Urban red foxes have been recorded breeding under the floorboards of occupied houses and derelict buildings in the UK (Bateman 2012) – and it is likely that sometimes they do the same in the US. Small culverts, thickets, and wooded areas provide needed resting areas for foxes (Bateman 2012). Kit foxes can dig their own dens, but some take over abandoned dens – or even share them with skunks! Coyotes prefer riparian areas and patches of native grass (manicured lawns don’t count!) to rest and breed (Gese 2012). They will not use human buildings for shelter, but like foxes, they dig their dens (Bateman 2012). Bobcats typically only take up residence in very large habitat fragments within cities or make forays into cities while still residing in wild areas (Bateman 2012, Chupp, 2013, Crooks 2002, Lowry 2013, Ordenana 2013, Tigas 2003).
They likely inhabit dens within these areas that are similar to their dens in wild areas (in rock formations, hollow logs, etc.) and venture into the city to hunt. Even in the city, the mesopredators need space to forage with corridors that connect enough habitat patches or other food sources that they can survive. Studies on how much space foxes, coyotes, and bobcats need and how far into a city that space can be have had varied results. Most studies have found that foxes are the most adapted to living deep within urban areas, within the smallest most fragmented patches (Chupp 2013, Crooks 2002, Tigas 2003). These studies argue that the areas inhabited by foxes are too small to support larger carnivores like coyotes and bobcats, but that the foxes thrive because they are “released” from predation by those larger mammals.
Surprisingly, one study in southern California found coyotes and bobcats at least visiting – if not dwelling in – isolated patches in the interior of cities while foxes were relegated to the outskirts (Ordenana 2010). This study posits that perhaps the foxes have moved out to avoid being eaten by the larger predators. The smallest area recorded as a gray fox habitat (whether urban or rural) was .97 km2 (Rubin 2006). Foxes in cities have smaller territories than rural foxes, because their food resources are higher and more stable (Bateman 2012, Gosselink 2010). Coyotes in Chicago were found to have territories on average roughly twice those of rural coyotes. Gese theorizes that it takes a larger area of city habitat to meet a coyote’s feeding needs (2012).
All of these urban mammals use places like flood channels, drainage lines, power line corridors, beach strands, and railroad corridors to get from one place to another in the city (Bateman 2012). They typically travel at night to avoid humans (Gese 2012 – of coyotes, Lowry 2013 – of coyotes & bobcats). Most of these mammals, even when living in cities, are naturally shy and are unlikely to approach you (Crooks 2002).
If you see a coyote that seems to be following you, the appropriate response is to harass it. This is not only for your safety (and your pet’s) but also for the safety of the animal itself. So often when we consider the impacts of urbanization on biodiversity, it is easy to overlook the fact that cities can provide habitat for some species. What I find particularly intriguing is the variation in how populations of a single species can respond in different ways to urban development. I agree, it is very intriguing & there is a lot of interesting work being done on the potential for more biodiversity in cities. A diagnosis of Fatty Liver Disease can be a real downer, but it may hearten you to know that there are steps you can take to reverse this condition.
Your fatty liver may well be a direct result of poor diet and nutrition, coupled with lack of exercise. However, in order to reduce the fat in your liver, you must reduce the fat in and on the rest of your body (at least 10%).
A healthy, nutritious diet instead of one made up primarily of fat, sugar and cholesterol laden empty calories can bring about a dramatic reversal of Fatty Liver Disease.
Eating a daily diet that is well balanced and includes all of the recommended food groups will be amazingly effective in reversing your disease.
As a rule of thumb, you should avoid any highly processed foods, too, if you have Fatty Liver Disease. If you have been eating a nutrient poor diet, you may be panicking and almost breaking out in a cold sweat at the thought of giving up those unhealthy foods you love and crave.
Almost everyone that has had to drastically alter their eating habits and learn to make healthy choices, such as eating a fresh carrot instead of reaching for a glazed donut, has experienced the same feelings you are and been where you’re at right now. Practice this the next time you go shopping: only stick to the walls of your grocery store. Learn some food psychology, as grocery chains have spent millions of dollars on the best ways to get you to buy junk food – at eye level, using welcoming colors (and even scents), and at the checkout and the front of the store. When you do have to go to the middle aisles, look on the higher and lower shelves … this is where the less desirable (and thus likely the healthier and less marketed) food options are. True, there will be times when you may find yourself Jonesing for a candy bar or a banana split.
For the first few weeks, I stuck with it, skipping the salt shaker, cutting down on salty foods, and beginning to look at how much sodium was in the processed food I bought (and trying to find low-sodium options).
Now, when I make soups and meals for family and friends, I tell them that they will have to add their own salt. I got a stomach ache afterwards (not to mention I drank a lot of water due to the salt content), and I found that I was actually craving vegetables. I have fatty liver grade 3, I am on a diet now, but recently I had cows liver as I am fond of it, is it bad or good for my fatty liver.
I really appreciate what i am learning and also to know that there are other people like me with NAFLD stage 3.
Is it ok to have fruits like 2 tangerine; plum; few berries per day who is suffering from fatty liver and sugar levels in border? Chow mein noodles are carbohydrates and are often cooked in oil, and the fat content is high … so, I would avoid them. Many Many thanks to Greg and all contributors who have helped me a lot in understanding my Grade 11 Fatty Liver.
Are you working in conjunction with your doctor on a diet that will address all these issues?


I recently had an ultrasound due to pain I had which I thought was due to my gallbladder because gallbladder problems run in my family. Unless your doctor has given you restrictions against pork, lean cuts of pork are fine, as well as lean cuts of beef, chicken or fish.
Unless your doctor has given you dietary restrictions against pork or chicken, these can be a healthy part of your liver health program.
Added sugars include all kinds of sugars and syrups that are put in a product during processing to make it taste better. Soda, fruit drinks and juices, sports drinks, energy drinks, and other sugar-sweetened beverages are the No. High-fructose corn syrup, which is processed from corn, is chemically and nutritionally almost identical to table sugar (that is to say, not very nutritious).
Another reason high-fructose corn syrup is used in so many packaged foods and drinks is because, as a syrup, it can easily be blended into their formulations. The artificial sweetener -- which is 200 to 700 times sweeter than regular table sugar -- was once linked to bladder cancer in rats.
If you're trying to avoid added sugars, which ingredient should you watch for on food labels? It's easy to think that you can just skip packaged foods and drinks and you'll avoid added sugars.
Acid Reflux is the process by which your stomach acid goes the wrong way (up your esophagus).
To avoid these unpleasant symptoms, it’s important to know what triggers the heartburn.
This workshop will help you to kick your habit, whilst teaching you how your diet can support your body when giving up this physiological addiction. I will draw on information from all of these studies when talking about foxes, but keep in mind that there may be variation between species. They rely on hunting to obtain food (Bateman 2012, Fischer 2012, Ordenana 2010, Ruell 2012). They might dig these dens, for which they need an area with soil that is soft enough to dig in (Bateman 2012).
Wooded areas are preferred for denning; one study found 15 of 19 den sites in wooded areas (Gese 2012). However, the smallest studied was 1.0 km2 – smaller than those recorded in Rubin (Gese 2012).
This is probably because they still hunt for most of their food, unlike the foxes above that take advantage of human-sourced food. This may be because they are traveling into the city to feed and then back out to dens (Lowry 2013).
However, some coyotes in Arizona have been known to approach humans, especially people who are walking dogs (Lawrence 2011). Do not hurt it, but do something to let it know that it should keep its distance from humans. She loves all things citizen science and enjoys learning about everything that goes on four legs, two wings or fins. This raises the possibility that cities could be managed and designed in such a way as to support larger wildlife populations and greater levels of biodiversity. My favorite example is the kit fox, which avoids cities in much of its range but lives in urban developments in places like Bakersfield, California. Over time, as you bypass those unhealthy foods that may have contributed to your disease in favor of healthy foods that help to reverse the condition, you will find yourself actually preferring the foods high in nutritional value. There’s some studies (like this one) that say a diet deficient in choline (a type of B vitamin) contributes to fatty liver. This means ultimately you eat not only all that pasta but you’re hungry an hour or two later. I have been also diagnosed with a fatty liver a few months ago and decided to completely change my lifestyle in order to reverse this condition that really scares me.
I read a report from my doctor about me and it reported I drank from 0-2 drinks which I do not. The only reason why whole wheat bread is better than white is because of the fiber, which helps bind the sugars – carbs are converted to sugar in your body. The main things to avoid are refined sugars, pastries, white bread, soft drinks and other foods where sugars and carbs are not locked with fiber.
One trick that worked for me was swapping Pepsi with soda water and a squirt of juice to make a spritzer. I have been advised to walk till I sweat for half an hour daily and my dietitian has place me on a months meal plan after which a review is required.
There are a number of things going on here and it sounds like your body has been under a lot of stress from all different directions. In my abdomen ultrasound it shows that I had a mild diffuse fatty liver changing to grade 1. Diets that are high in calories from any source, like sugar or fat, lead to weight gain -- and being overweight raises your chance of type 2 diabetes. That's so shoppers have to move through the entire store to get to necessities like produce, milk, eggs, breads, meats, and fish -- which also happen to be the basis of a healthy diet that's low in added sugars. But sucrose is the sugar found in the greatest concentration in sugarcane (a type of tall grass) and sugar beets (a root). But you can also find them in sweeteners you might use for cooking and baking -- like honey, fruit juice concentrate, and brown sugar. But unfortunately for those suffering from the acid reflux disease or heartburn, tomatoes are a no-no.
Cheese is high in fat which slows down the emptying of your stomach, which can lead on an increased pressure on your sphincter. A study conducted at the Duke University Medical Center, published in “Nicotine and Tobacco Research” in 2007, showed the right diet can help to break the smoking habit. Together they will teach you the key steps to quit smoking whilst changing those habits and behaviours that may be holding you back. They also eat a number of the rodents and birds that are commonly found in cities (Bateman 2012). She has a PhD in Classical Literature and Languages from the University of Wisconsin - Madison and enjoys reading Greek and Roman literature or talking about mythology in her spare time. Of course, co-existing with urban wildlife has its own set of challenges, as you point out.
With some exceptions, the average modern citizen of Western Civilization does not eat healthy or follow the nutritional and dietary guidelines needed for good health. But, for the most part, you will discover that both physically and mentally, your body will prefer to eat a healthy diet. I stuck to it, and sometimes substituted with hot sauce, being careful to choose sauces low in sodium. So, instead of fighting to exercise, try a Mediterranean diet instead (which is what I have done) – olive oil, fish, vegetables and fruit. Best fruits and vegetables would be apples, pears, raspberries, oranges, avocados, beets, tomatoes, broccoli, carrots and cabbage … but pretty well all fruits and veggies are good. Ask your doctor whether it’s safe for you to consume wheat products and if she says yes, add them back into your diet slowly and watch for a return of symptoms and your general feeling, as well as keeping an eye on test results if your doctor has you taking updated tests regularly. If you don’t have these indications, tomatoes should be fine for you and for your liver. I saw that there are a ton of different approaches to diets, what to eat and what not to eat when it comes to a fatty liver, so I’ve decided that the best approach is a semi-vegetarian one, without consuming any alcohol or fried foods. The fiber helps your liver process the sugars more slowly, and thus helps avoid any sugar spikes that could further harm your body.


I wish I can help more, but the steps I suggest should help give you an idea of healthy foods to eat to help stop and even reverse the condition.
It sounds as if you’re doing that by revamping your diet and getting plenty of exercise. As to the acidic reaction, from what I understand, this is not uncommon for some gallbladder removal patients, but I would ask the doctor about this issue.
I had my cholecystectomy in 1986 and still avoid cataloupe because of the symptoms it produces even now. That's way more than the American Heart Association recommends: 6 teaspoons per day for women and 9 for men.
However, being overweight and eating a high-calorie diet -- which often includes a lot of added sugar -- can raise your risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Acid reflux is said to be caused by smoking, obesity, eating heavy meals and laying down or bending at the waist, blood pressure medications, exercise, and stomach abnormalities. Peppermint is shown to soothe your stomach, but it also relaxes the muscle between your esophagus and your stomach, which in turn allows the acid to flow back into your esophagus. Chocolate relaxes the sphincter, which allows the acid from your stomach to easily flow into your esophagus.
Smokers live in an awkward dilemma: they know this drug would kill them one day but they find reasons not to quit.
How to control cravings and not put on weight and how to set yourself up for optimal health.
Sea otters normally weigh around 14 to 45 kg (31 to 99 lb).They have the thickest coat in the entire animal kingdom which serves as the supreme source of insulation. This would still preserve the cultural interpretation of the site while providing habitat for small animals and prey items for the larger ones.
I can no longer enjoy a lot of menu items at restaurants, knowing the massive amounts of sodium they add. If you have a hepatitis infection, you should get better on its own after a few weeks, though it may take a couple months, but definitely get it checked out, as certain types can be more serious.
I had my Gallbladder out 6 months ago and after suffering for 20 years with it I was so happy to have it out. Veggies and fruits are our friends in this case and everybody will be shocked how well they will feel after changing to a healthy diet.
So I have joined a gym and, although I was eating pretty well the last few months , have really made good choices with my diet. Because the stevia leaf has to be processed to make the sweetener, some question whether stevia really can be called all natural.
Also, here is a link to an interesting paper about culvert use by a number of different species.
It definitely is unfair to see your friends eating whatever you want, and not getting sick. Right after the surgery I went back to the doctor and he said I had a Fatty Liver but I I thought it was because I was overweight and no big deal. That’s why, for diabetics, juice is bad (no fiber), but certain fruits can still be eaten (sugar plus fiber). This includes brain cells related to mood, sexual function, sleep, memory and learning, and appetite. If you have a lot of avocado in your diet, and suffer from heartburn, try eliminating it for a couple of days and see if it improves your condition. They are also the relatives of wolverines, badgers, and minks.I’m bringing you all these and other useful sea otter facts for kids including sea otter diet, habitat, and reproduction.
Home range, habitat selection and diet of foxes (Vulpes vulpes) in a semi-urban riparian environment. It shows that characteristics of the culvert and of the immediately surrounding habitat are important for usage by these species. Ansy suggestions that others might use, not the ones that are so fortunate to have the use of their legs. I wonder if I can reverse this in a month so I can have just one bite of those foods again? I was indeed overweight and lost more in the first month, while now it’s about 2-3 pounds per week, but my weight is still going down, I feel a lot better and I never starve myself.
I also have an underactive thyroid..and i am having muscle aches in my legs and knees, hairloss and shortness of breath!!! If it does, you can eliminate it from your diet, or simply re-introduce it in very mild portions.
Sea otters are found in the offshore environments and they come to the surface to forage.It primarily feeds on aquatic invertebrates including crustaceans, molluscs, fish species, and sea urchins. I’d stick with lean protein and vegetables as my primary diet for a while and see how that works out, as these two categories tend to be low on the reactive scale even for people with sensitivities.
Sea otters have a striking eating and foraging ability in that they employ different techniques to disengage their prey.

I can’t stand salty foods anymore, and I have to ask them to halve the salt when I go to restaurants. With this condition, do you think the fatty liver condition can be reversed easily since it is in such an early stage? Urban habitat fragmentation and genetic population structure of bobcats in coastal southern California.
Two of these species are regarded as marine mammals.Lutra feline is the marine sea otter that that inhabits the coastal zone of southern Argentina, Chile, and southern Peru. Target Species Habitat Mapping, University of Southern California GIS Research Laboratory and Center for Sustainable Cities, Los Angeles, California. They are often found breeding on the rocky shores together with feeding on small crustaceans grabbed from nearshore marine waters.One of the strange facts about sea otters is that they live their whole life in water free of contact with land. Sea otters engage in all the primary functions under water such as feeding, resting, socializing, birthing, and breeding. Greg I have taken a lot of advise re the type of veggies that are good for this type of condition from your Blog.
Some specimens weighing up to 54 kg (120 lb) are also recorded.Males are larger than females. Around 150,000 strands of hair per centimeter exist on its fur making it the densest of any animal.
The mothers of pups are likely to feed at night.Many sea otters have elongate lithe bodies, with four short limbs modified to varying degrees for swimming. Their hind legs serve as flippers which seem like those of the harbor seals.Of all the otter’s species, sea otters are the supreme divers as well as swimmers and why wouldn’t they as they are known as ‘SEA OTTERS”.
In general, sea otters can remain under water for about 2 – 3 minutes but they can hold breath for up to 5 minutes. They often dig deep to take snails and other like creatures from the mud.Feeding Ecology and DietSea otters are known to consume around 20 – 25% of their daily weight.
