Their color varies from dark gray to white with or without pattern (Colorado State University Extension 2012). The sowbug is one of the only crustaceans to live entirely in a terrestrial environment. Interestingly enough, due to the fact that they are crustaceans they will perish if they are unable to maintain enough moisture. Their adaption to land is possible because of the development of gills that are located on their feet which allow oxygen to enter and carbon dioxide to exit (this is how they breath). To prevent dehydration sowbugs spend bright day light hours in damp dark habitats such as underneath stones, logs, leaf litter, and other debris.
A howlers roar can be heard from as much as 2 miles away and both males and females howl. The howler monkey howls for many reasons usually to warn other fellow howler monkeys of danger, male howlers howl to claim their territory, and also to look for potential mates. These primates move particularly slow for primates and mostly uses their tails to grab and hang off of branches while using its hands for grabbing food. Their tails are strong enough to support the monkey's entire body weight, also their first 2 fingers of each hand are set apart and are opposable to the other three allowing them to easily grab tree branches and other objects like food. Howlers are herbivores and usually stay in the canopy where they get most of their food which is mostly leaves and fruits.
The Sugar Glider The sugar glider, or more commonly known as the “Pocket Pet”, is normally described as a squirrel-like omnivore but has a more of a lemur-ish face. They are from Australia and have become popular pets worldwide because of how well they bond with humans. When born, they are as big as your thumb. When they are full grown they are 6 inches long with a tail that is literally 6 inches long. (So a foot in all).
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. They also inhabit the higher mountains and do not disturb anything other than wild animals. Jaguars devour animals both small and large like the small rodents like rats, turtles, monkeys; deer’s and even the tapir. They are naturally made to live and control these types of animals that invade human livelihood. Nowadays these cute creatures have been unexpectedly declining in population because of the many challenges in which they have to adapt.
Descriptive Essay Wild Jungle Daycare Standing in the doorway looking into the lime green jungle room at Smyles Daycare they can be transported into the real life jungle just by looking at the four walls. Every child who comes into the room and sees’ all the different animals of the jungle and feel’s all the textures of the stuffed animals stapled to the wall can close their eyes and think about what they have seen and imagine hearing the sounds of a real life jungle. To the right of the doorway it welcomes everyone to the jungle. The first animal they see is a bright purple fuzzy monkey stapled to the wall by his poor feet and arms looking over all the children in the room. Next, to the monkey is a long skinny green snake with smooth body and a tail that is black with four rattlers.
In contrast the lower part of her hip was powerfully primitive like an ape adapted for climbing. Tim White and his team inferred from her pelvis that her spine was long and curved like a humans. Ardi’s feet and hands also gave proof that she walked on the ground and climbed in the trees. According to a 2009 article in Science Magazine by C. Owen Lovejoy “Reexaming Human Origins in Light of Ardipithecus ramidus” unlike humans, Ardi had an opposable toe which enabled her to grasp branches and climb in the trees, whereas we have five rigid toes she has one opposable
Since that time, lemurs have evolved to cope with an extremely seasonal environment and their adaptations give them a level of diversity that rivals that of all other primate groups. Until shortly after humans arrived on he island around 2,000 years ago, there were lemurs as large as a male gorilla. Today, there are nearly 100 species of lemurs, and most of those species have been discovered or promoted to full species status since the 1990s; however, lemur taxonomic classificationis controversial and depends on which species concept is used. Even the higher-level taxonomy is disputed, with some experts preferring to place most lemurs within the infraorder Lemuriformes, while others prefer Lemuriformes to contain all living strepsirrhines, placing all lemurs in superfamily Lemuroidea and all lorises andgalagos in superfamily Lorisoidea. Ranging in size from 30 g (1.1 oz) to 9 kg (20 lb), lemurs share many common, basal primate traits, such as divergent digits on their hands and feet and nails instead of claws (in most species).
They are known to hunt wild pigs, monkeys, tapirs, armadillos, birds and rodents. (Patrizio). Palm fruits, bananas, and honey are the most desired crops that are gathered. The Yanomamo tribes like small streams and creeks, they attend to avoid big rivers. The Yanomamo tribes think very highly of aggressive men, because they seem fearless and they tend to imitate enemies.
They were well adapted to eating plants as they had sharp front incisors and claws, which developed and grew endlessly throughout life, were well suited to chewing off pieces of vegetation and digging up roots. Furthermore it is believed that the Diprotodon had an exceptionally long hairy coat, which would have served to protect the animal from the extreme temperatures it faced. The Diprotodon was considered to be low in the trophic level. It generally only ate green leafy vegetation and certain roots. Since there position on the trophic level the Diprotodon had many predators including the Marsupial Lion and a Megalania.
The Batek people are hunter-gatherers hunting mostly monkeys and gibbons as well as fishers, and they gather mostly wild fruits, berries and honey. They also plant their own crops not only for food but for trade as well. Aside from fish and game, which they pursue alongside the extraction of all the other food sources, they tend to exploit the various available resources in the following order of priority: (1) wild fruit and honey; (2) purchased food (usually obtained by trading forest products); (3) wild tubers; and (4) self-grown crops. This order seems to correlate with the number of calories that can be obtained per hour of work, the most productive resources being exploited first (Endicott 1984). The Batek also buy food products by trading with other communities in their area.
