Chimpanzees exhibit social behavior that mimics humans such as social structure, nest-building, usage of tools, communication and acute intelligence. Chimpanzees and bonobos live in similar jungles in equatorial Africa near the Republic of Congo. They look alike (except for a few minute differences such a
JAGUAR POPULATION IN BELIZE For many years our mountains have been inhabited by various animals which had taken care of our beautiful environment. When crops failed to give the expected amount there always was a reason why…population explosion of herbivores. Nature has a natural way of controlling such pests. Unfortunately, human actions have been the cause of many of these unexpected actions of rodents. Jaguars are animals that rely on smaller animals for food and depend on the forest for their survival as in terms of habitat and survival of their prey.
Springer Spaniels are medium-sized sporting dogs with a glossy coat his/her legs, ears, chest, and brisket. They are sturdily built, have gentle expressions, and have friendly, wagging tails. A male’s shoulder height is 20 inches when a female’s shoulder height is 19 inches. Weight depends on the dog’s condition. For example, a healthy male that is 20 inches would weigh 49-55 pounds.
Ecologists have discovered that these practices have dramatically impacted the diets of wild animals. The spotted hyenas were affected by Lent and had to change their eating habits. Spotted hyenas are notorious for their scavenging ways. They get food from butcher's waste and households but now have turned to hunting. This research was published in the British Ecological Society's Journal of Animal Ecology.
There are many Gorillas found all over the world, but there is a particular sub-species of Gorilla called the Mountain Gorilla or otherwise known by its scientific name: Gorilla Gorilla Beringei. This type of gorilla averages around the size of six-feet and weighs around three hundred to four hundred and twenty-five pounds. These vegetarians are commonly found in the Viruga Valcanic Mountains of Central Africa. The primates are further located within three national parks: Mgahinga, Southwest Uganda and Southwest Rwanda. These primates live in a habitat that consists of high altitude and thick forests with a dense herb layer.
Three-color vision has developed in some primates. Most also have opposable thumbs and some have prehensile tails. Many species are sexually dimorphic, which means males and females have different physical traits, including body mass, canine tooth size, and coloration. Primates have slower rates of development than other similarly sized mammals, and reach maturity later but have longer lifespans. Some species live in solitude, others live in male–female pairs, and others live in groups of up to hundreds of
Culture, according to Wikipedia is defined as “the distinct ways that people living in different parts of the world classified and represented their experiences, and acted creatively.” In this case, we are refering to the chimpanzees as well. These groups of animals interact among each other incredibly well for the most part. They are getting more complex in their thinking, also. As stated in the article the brain of the chimps are expanding and in some areas surpassing some human abilities. The chimps socially are divided into groups with subgroups.
In the jungle, however, a zebra's stripes actually work as a camouflage to deter its main predators: lions and hyenas. Since the animals herd together, experts believe that the mass of stripes can confuse the predators by acting as an optical illusion that blends their figures together. Consequently, a group of 10 zebras may look like a giant striped blob that a lion wouldn't want to take on solo. For more detailed information about this natural disguise, read "How do a zebra's stripes act as camouflage?" By and large, these ungulates -- or hoofed animals -- prefer to pal around together rather than alone, migrating as far as 300 miles (482 kilometers) to graze [source: Holland].
Lucy resembled an ape and was able to make tools to find food and weapons. I believe that Lucy is one of the first Australopithecines closely related to the human species for several reasons. Although she had a small brain, Lucy could make tools, use a fire for heat, and use sticks to gather termites for food. Lucy also was able to walk upright and has a pelvic structure similar to that of a human. The two physical innovations which most obviously distinguish us from other primates are that we are bipedal and that we have bigger brains.
Many of wild animals cannot cope with situation that they are taken from their natural habitats and placed in captivity. They cannot carry on their normal activity like in the wild and become listless and inactive in zoo. They also lose their natural abilities such as sprinting and hunting when placed in captivity. According to Virginia McKenna, the founder of Born Free Foundation and wildlife campaigner of United Kingdom suggested that freedom is a precious concept, and wildlife suffers mentally and physically from the lack
