Animals have various defense mechanisms. Most have teeth, so they can bite. Others have claws or horns to scratch and gore. Long-legged animals can kick with their hooves. A d…istasteful scent, like one used by a skunk, is another method. Alligators use their tails, and large animals, like elephants, have sheer bulk. turtle
So they can blend in with their natural habitat and protect themselves from predators
\nYour question is not well phrased. The law allows someone to kill to defend themselves, they nevertheless still have to prove such a circumstance.\nShould a person be allowe…d to kill in self-defense? That is a personal choice.

There are many plants that have special structure to protectthemselves from human and other animals. A good example is thepoisonous ivy which produces urushiol and roses that …have thornsfor protection.
There are various methods for defence, depending on the animal. . camouflage, which may enable them to blend into their surroundings, or make them appear more dangerous than… they really are . hard shells (e.g. turtles, molluscs) . quills or spines (porcupine, echidna) . sharp teeth and/or claws . burrowing into the ground to hide . speed and agility of movement
A snake will usually try to flee or hide when threatened. A fewspecies will play dead if confronted by a predator. If cornered orcaptured many snakes will bite their attacker.… Some species havevenom that can made a bite extremely painful and possibly fatal.Other snakes can release a foul-smelling musk to drive awaypredators.
By hiding themselves in the sand or using the special feature given to them by god.
No. Or another answer is yes, based on the following Witness literature; The Watchtower printed by Jehovah's Witnesses says in 1st June 1968 page 347 But what if you… are accosted by a violent person, one who begins to attack you? Then reasoning and peacefully handing over material possessions may no longer be enough. In this extreme situation the Christian is justified in protecting himself . If unable to get away, or if in his own home, he can ward off blows and defend himself, doing what he can to restrain the attacker. Of course, if there are several, or many attackers, even this defense may prove unsuccessful. True, a blow struck in self-defense might injure the assailant. But if it resulted in killing the attacker, this should not be intentional. A Christian who might thus accidentally kill his assailant should recognize the seriousness of what has happened. Realizing that he may bear bloodguilt for what has happened, even though it was unintentional, he ought to go humbly to God in prayer to seek his forgiveness through Christ Jesus. ATTEMPTED RAPE If you are a Christian woman, what should you do if, in spite of all precautions, you are set upon by a rapist? If you cannot deter him by reasoning, or by calling upon the name of Jehovah, then what? As a Christian you are under obligation to resist. This resistance includes screaming and creating as much disturbance as possible to try to frighten off the attacker and attract help. If the attack continues and you cannot break free to flee, then you would be justified even to inflict damage on your assailant if necessary. Resistance is imperative , because the rapist is after, not just money, but your virtue. An issue of integrity to Jehovah's laws is involved here. So by no means would it be proper quietly to submit to rape, as that would be consenting to fornication .
They can spray (Skunk), Poison (like some plants) or have adapted senses to avoid predators.
in many different ways depending on the animal for example a skunk has it's spray
No. This only can happen in cartoons or movies.
Because animals especially dogs are always lookign for love and sometimes they are to small to defend themselves.
In Animal Life
Animals are divided into two main groups, Invertebrates and Vertebrates. Vertebrates, such as man, have a spine and an endoskeleton, ( internal skeleton) to which all their mu…scles are attached. They also have a rib-cage which protects the heart and lungs etc, as well as a cranium, (skull) which protects the brain. Some INVERTEBRATES have no skeletons, such as earthworms and jelly-fish, but others, the ARTHROPODS, have an EXOSKELETON, ( outer skeleton) made up of chitin and calcium carbonate. The arthropods can be divided into ; the insects; the spiders, the crustaceans, (lobsters, etc) and the Diplopods/myriapods, ( centipedes etc). The muscles and body organs are all INSIDE the exoskeleton.
All tarantulas use their fangs to defend themselves, and many tarantulas will strike out at pushy predators with their front four feet before trying anything more violent. If …the tarantula is one that comes from North or South America, the next escalation will be to scrape and flick the irritating spines that grow on their abdomens. If that doesn't work, or if its a tarantula from some other part of the world that does not have the "natural itching power," then the next step will likely be to run away. Tarantulas that are more aggressive and spiders that can't find an escape route will bite. A South American arboreal genus called Avicularia will also squirt feces at predators.
Grizzly bears are the biggest predators in their environment. Even wolves and mountain lions can't kill grizzly bears because the Bears are well armed with their size, strengt…h, claws, and teeth. However, grizzly bears can be a threat to each other; in particular, males often try to kill cubs so that their mothers will be ready to breed sooner.
Yes they will bite the crap out of you plus they are prettystrong and can shove you to the ground.
