These birds have a productive way of life. When hunting for their prey, the locate it in the darkness by noise, and they have special. They mostly eat small mammals, but they also eat rodents, nocturnal insects, fish and other birds. So obviously, they are carnivores. They do not build their own nests, they use old ones, and if they cant find any old ones they go to trees, ledges, holes in the ground or they burrow.
(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.
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
They also prey on many delicate aquatic creatures as the innocent sea urchin, unarmed crab, unprotected squid, indefensible octopus, and fish. These vile creatures prefer different animals to eat and it varies from otter to otter. The hooligans eat about 25% to 30% of their weight. A large male may consume as much as 25 pounds of food daily. Meaning these thugs murder creature after creature feeding their insatiable appetite.
In the top row where our teeth are usually located, giraffes have a bony ridge instead. This helps for biting off food. If it weren’t for giraffes’ long necks, most African animals would have to fight over ground-level food. A giraffe’s body structures and movement is very different from that of other animals. A giraffe can weigh anywhere from 1,200 – 4,000 pounds during adulthood.
The specific species that interests me the most is. Dendroaspis polylepis, which is Latin for “The Black Mamba.” Description The Black Mamba is one of the top 5 deadliest, venomous snakes in the world. The snake’s name derived from the color of its mouth, which is a purple-black color. The tongue of the mamba is extended from the mouth to collect and analyze air particles, which are then deposited in the roof of its mouth. These snakes have no external ears, but are quite skilled at detecting vibrations from the ground.
Zebras travel mainly where they can find plenty of food, and water. Animal Description: Zebras have black and white hair that is short and bristly. They can stand nearly 5 feet tall, and weigh between 400 and 600 pounds. They have small hooves, and large ears that help them hear if danger is heading their way. The Young Animals: Zebra babies are called foals, and are born after their mothers are pregnant for 12-13 months.
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
Barn Owl Also known as the "ghost" owl or "spirit" owl. The Barn Owl is different from most owls. It has unusually long legs and long talons, and has small, dark colored eyes. They do not like daylight at all, so you won't catch a peek of this owl until it's really dark! Barn Owls probably have the best hearing of any owl, and experiments have shown that they can hunt their prey by sound alone.
In fact some farmers thought of them as rats that ate their crops. Tarsiers are sold as pets to people, and are pretty popular, since they sit calmly in your hand (their whole body, that’s how small they are!) When they are hunted by people and put into cages, to be sold, some Tarsiers commit suicide due to the captivity. The Philippine government put Tarsiers on the endangered species list. So there was no hunting of Tarsiers allowed anymore.
