Nature has selected out the thumb in order for the spider monkey to swing through trees since they are closely 100% arboreal as well as 100% quadrapedal. (PIN). These monkeys are nearly never found on terrestrial land. The Capuchin monkey is another species that I really enjoyed. They come from the tropical forests of Central and South Africa.
The algae covers the sloth’s brown, white or black fur with greenish tinge camouflaging it against predators in the topical forest of Costa Rica. Having four limbs and an extra vertebrate allowing them to turn there head almost 360 degrees. Double the lifespan as a dog, they can live up to 40 years. Sloth’s four part stomach works like wood chipper grinding up tough leaves and
It spends most of its time on the ground, but can hover in search of prey. It has better color vision then other owls. The Burrowing Owl has feathers on the head that resemble eyes, so a predator thinks twice before getting to close. Burrowing owls move into abandoned prairie dog holes, but are able to dig their own holes if necessary, which protects them from large predators. Some interesting facts about the Burrowing Owl are that they can make more then seventeen vocalizations, and when alarmed they can make a hissing sound that sound like a rattlesnake.
Field mouse, wood mouse or common shrew, is the second most frequently prey is the brown rat that is when the body weights of the various prey are considered. In the UK and the United States they also eat amphibians, reptiles, insects, birds, bats and rabbits, but earthworms are not part of their diet. During the winter they eat frogs or small birds. In a year during the breeding period, a pair of Barn Owl can eat over 4,000 preys. You may think the rodents’ populations are controlled by the amount of predation they suffer, but the reverse is true.
Fruit bats have a habitat of thick forests. A group of fruit bats are called a camp or a colony. What they eat... Fruit bats eat [its hinted in their name] all types of fruit like bananas,peaches and mango but they often eat more nectar and pollen than fruit. Fruit bats are alo very useful to us because they suck out the pollen from flowers and pollinate another flower or plant so it can grow and we can eat it. Predators...
Savannahs and Black throated-monitors have mild temperaments. Even though they live on separate parts of the same continents they thrive in hot humid habitats. They both make good pets for the people that are looking into getting a trainable and docile reptile. They both also need at least a cage that is twice the size of them if they grow that big. Usually Savannah and Black throats live about ten years but do, to poor care and bad cages they usually don’t make it more than a year in captivity.
Part 1 Location: Planet Mato Biome: Treelantus Average Temperature: 85-115 F Average Precipitation: 75-150 cm Types of plants: Carnivorous plants, tall tree like plants, grass, etc. Seasons: Spring, summer, fall, and winter Interesting facts/features: Most Mato citizens are banned from entering most Treelantus biomes so they can preserve and protect the biome animals and plants. Part 2 Predator and Prey relationship: * Flyhip and metafish * The flyhip has keen night vision to catch the metafish because the metafishes usually comes out at night. While the flyhip has keen night vision, the metafish uses camouflage to blend in with the water. * This relationship affects the ecosystem by population control.
In order to withstand cold temperatures, the diamondback rattle snake hibernates during the winter months in underground boroughs previously made by other animals as it does not have the ability to dig on its own (Glaudas, 2009). To protect it self from hot weather, the diamondback becomes nocturnal in the summer months and consumes its meals at night when the temperature becomes cooler. Therefore, it is most active during the spring and fall months when the weather is most ideal. The diamondback rattlesnake has the ability to slow its metabolic rate to reduce the amount of food, water and oxygen it needs to survive (Glaudas, 2009). The diamondback rattlesnake’s skin is also another example of how this organism has adapted to living in the Southwestern desert.
Giraffes eat a lot too; up to as much as 66 pounds a day. Surprisingly, giraffes are rarely seen drinking because they receive most of their water through the consumption of acacia tree leaves. A giraffe uses its tongue to pluck leaves of branches, among other things. Like humans, giraffes have 32 teeth, except with one difference. In the top row where our teeth are usually located, giraffes have a bony ridge instead.
Sometimes, infants have been captured for illegal sale to zoos. Because female Mountain gorillas are very protective of their babies, poachers often have to kill the mother or even an entire group of animals in order to take one baby But the main reason why they are endangered is habitat loss. The countries where the Mountain gorillas live have the highest human population densities in the world. Because there is a lack of farmland in these areas, every acre that is not protected has been farmed. People remove the forests in order to create new farmland for
