K – Strategist

Most large animals are K – strategists, because they produce few offspring, but most of the offspring survive. K – Strategists have few offspring compared to r- strategists because of the competition for the resources in their environment, and also because they require more resources. This red panda is a K- strategist, producing only a few offspring which it can protect and nurture, and also living longer than r – strategists.
