Aye-Ayes are arboreal, and often solitary primates, although males and females can have overlapping home ranges. According to the IUCN red list, the Aye-Aye is considered near threatened. The main threats to their survival include deforestation and agricultural threats, as well as human killings due to their perceived status as a crop pest and harbinger of evil (Andrainarivo et al. 2008). Sadly, the Aye-Aye is only one of many species of threatened lemurs on the island of Madagascar.
This food chain is a simple depiction of a single forest. A beech seedling is represented as the ﬁrst layer of food source along comes the luna moth caterpillar then the short tail shrewd and ﬁnally the barred owl. This display shows how the food chain works where it starts from the green plants which are eaten by the herbivores who are then eaten by the predators. This cycle never ends because even when everything dies, they are decomposed by scavengers or other plants, nothing is wasted. 16.
A very large majority of banana varieties are not really able to grow for international trade, according to the article, their skin is too thin, or their pulp is very bland. Big banana companies like Dole and Chiquita are working on developing a replacement variety of the Cavendish, which has become the mass-market banana of choice for farmers and distributors because it provides a lot of fruit. Although Cavendishes need a lot of caring to grow, they are the only variety that provides farmer with a large amount of palatable fruit that can endure overseas trips without ripening or bruising too easily. The Cavendish is rich in Vitamins B6 and C, it contains a lot of potassium, magnesium, and fiber in it. It is also not very expensive, that is almost 60 cents per pound.
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. Their biggest threat is habitat loss. They lay 2-4 eggs mostly, but sometimes they lay one or even twelve. Their eggs are nearly round and mostly white. The male hunts and protects the young ones from intruders and the female cares for the
(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.
Why is the animal endangered? What are humans doing to affect the sustainability of this species? The Moon Bear is endangered from illegal hunting of the Moon Bear’s body parts, habitat loss from logging & athe main reason being because over Asia thousands & thousands of bears are on bear farms, kept in tiny cages, in order to get bile (a liquid in bears produced by the liver, that helps to digest the bears fat) from the gall bladders. Catheters (a metal tube) are implanted into the bears gall bladder (next to the liver in the abdomen), where the bile is drained up to twice a day. The procedure is very unhygienic & causes many infections where some bears die as a result.
The vegetation for our general study site was comprised of Douglas fir, hemlock and cedar with salal and ferns. Douglas Fir is not shade tolerant and therefore only occupied areas with available sunlight. Hemlock and cedar are shade tolerant and so compose the majority of the canopy as they can be in shade, allowing the D-firs to occupy light. Salal is a sign of slightly acidic soil and is allelopatric, which means that it can chemically affect other conifers negatively and use all the nutrients (DNV, 2010). There were mostly steep slopes with coarse woody debris greater than 7cm in diameter.
The luxury of having an exotic animal as pet has become popular in today society. America has a love affair with exotic species, which is creating a problem to our environment. Exotic pets cause big headaches for law enforcement and humane society officers who routinely respond to reports of unusual animals roaming the streets or attacking other animals or humans, something experts say is inevitable when dealing with animals ill-suited to captivity. "There's a reason why these animals are wild," said Adam Roberts, senior vice president for Born Free USA, a nonprofit animal protection organization. It has been estimated that as many as 15,000 non-human primates are kept by private individuals as pets in Florida.
Legumes are a healthy choice to consume because they are low in fat and have no cholesterol. Legumes are used as a primary protein source in the cuisine of many cultures across the world and in vegan and/or vegetarian diets. Black-eyed peas are also referred to as cowpeas and are a favorite southern legume. The young leaves of the plants are edible. Black-eyed peas are a native of Africa, where the legume is an important food source.
It's a different story with cats and dogs, who have been domesticated by selective breeding for desired traits for over thousands of years. These special animal companions depend on humans for food, shelter, veterinary care, and affection. Wild animals, by nature, are self-sufficient and fare best without our interference. The instinctive behavior of these animals makes them unsuitable as pets. >>I will now inform you of the dangers of owning a wild animal.
