Diet The main food that Koalas eat is eucalyptus leaves. Eucalyptus leaves are very fibrous and low in nutrition. Eucalyptus leaves contain a lot of water so koalas don’t have to drink. The koala’s metabolism rate is also regulated in a way to complement the heat insulation of the fur. The metabolism of the koala is quite slow it is only 74% of other animals’ metabolism rate.
(They live in the tropical rain forests of Central and South America.) It is also said that “they are especially vulnerable to the effects of forest fragmentation.” (2) Another reason that some Spider Monkeys are endangered is because of the threat of hunters. People of the same habitat as Spider Monkeys often hunt them for food. A big reason why they are so attractive as food to others is because of their huge size, with them being able to reach 24 pounds in weight as a mature male. Although the Spider Monkeys are suffering every day because of their loss of habitat and the threat of their hunters.
The Vervet Monkey inhabits savana lands and mountains up to 4,000 m (13,100 ft). In East Africa these monkeys can live in mountain areas up to about 13,000 feet, but they do not inhabit rain forests or deserts. Their preferred habitat is acacia woodland along streams, rivers and lakes. They are diurnal, sleeping and eating in trees from which they seldom venture. The ververt monkey prefers woodlands of all kinds, but favors woodlands adjacent to grassland.
In captivity they may receive honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, or bananas along with specially prepared feed.  The giant panda lives in a few mountain ranges in central China, mainly in Sichuan province, but also in the Shaanxi and Gansu provinces.  Due to farming, deforestation and other development, the panda has been driven out of the lowland areas where it once lived. The panda is a conservation reliant endangered species.  A 2007 report shows 239 pandas living in captivity inside China and another 27 outside the country.
With few other enemies other than people, the lifespan of a wild panda is about 25 years or above The head of a Panda is very large and has developed special molars for chewing plants and other thinks they like to eat. It has powerful muscles which extend from the top of its head to the jaws giving it the ability to crush very tough stalks. The basic fur color of the giant panda is white with black eye patches, ears, legs, feet, chest, and shoulders. Within its natural environment, pandas live in
However the Snow Leopard does compete with hunters who illegally hunt them for the selling’s of their organs. Over Population The Snow Leopard is expected to soon become extinct, and yes there are other species such as some of their small prey seeming to be overpopulating the area. The bunnies are said to be mass producing over in their habitat but only because of how quick bunnies and hare are at reproduction. On the other hand the larger prey are said to never be a problem of over population at this point because the snow leopard feed off them daily and because they don’t have a high
Howler Monkey I want to introduce you to the howler monkeys. Howler monkeys don’t need a loud speaker to talk. These boisterous primates eat leaves from the canopy of the forest along with fruits, nuts, and flowers. They live in tropical central and South America and also they live in small groups of about 12 individuals. They have a short snout, and wide-set, round nostrils and grow to be about 2 feet in length, not including their 30-inch tail.
A typical full-grown adult giraffe will eat over 70 pounds of leaves, twigs, and fruit each day. Giraffes don't need to drink water very often because there is so much water in the leaves they eat. However, when they do drink water, they can drink several gallons at a time. This is good because a giraffe has to bend down and get into a vulnerable position when drinking. Not a good idea when there are lions sneaking around!
Logging can also contribute to these problems. The reason why the population of Amur Leopards has been decreasing is because of hunting, loss of habitat, negative causes for inbreeding, development projects, and lack of protection. The lack of political commitment to conservation, meaning the people who are supposed to watch out for this endangered animal are not doing such a great job. And as you can tell, hunters and poachers are not allowed to kill this animal, but according to, Critically Endangered Amur Leopard Only 35 Left In Wild, in the year 2002 in Russia, nine Amur Leopard skins were found. Moreover, two were killed in China.
I agree with zoos because that’s a way to preserve the different species but sometimes animals are not in excellent conditions. Talking seriously, people suppose that in a zoo animals are a save of abuse because somebody in taking cares of them, when the reality is that not all zoos are trying to accomplish this purpose. Most of them only are looking for money and they don’t give the right care for the animals, or they put the animals in small places that are not very similar to their original habitats; something that I saw when I visited Vallarta’s zoo, is that they have two or three monkeys with a chain around their necks and with only one bar where they could be, when the reality is that these animals never are in one tree or branch, they really like to go from tree to tree and eat different fruits, but there monkeys where ready to be in a photo with somebody and produce more money. I think that animals like humans have their rights and we must respect them, so if we are taking care of them let’s make it good. Like giving them bigger places to live, more and better food, also trying to disturb them as little as possible.
