The Saki monkeys, that inhabit the mountainous terrains of South America, have coarse fur, an adaptation that enables the mammal to remain dry during the rain spells in the region. The Amazon rainforest is a perfect monkey habitat. Due to its wet and very hot climatic, the Woolly monkeys that inhabit the region and that along the Amazon basin and mountain ranges of Peru, live high up in the tree canopies. The Asian and African Old World monkeys enjoy more varied habitats. Occasionally, these species reside in cooler climates, monkeys found in China and Japan, are prime examples but not common.
The type of primate I examined for my zoo assignment was the red ruffed lemur, which also possesses a scientific name known as the varecia rubra (Red-ruffed Lemur). The red ruffed lemur is one of the largest primates of Madagascar and has a body length that reaches up to 56 cm., a tail length of up to 62 cm., and a weight of about four kgs (Red-ruffed Lemur). Red ruffed lemurs have slender bodies and long legs (Red Ruffed Lemur). Also, they have a narrow, fox-like snout and small ears that are hidden by a ruff of hair (Red Ruffed Lemur). The soft, woolly body fur is a deep rusty red while their extremities such as their forehead, crown, belly, and tail are black (Red Ruffed Lemur).
The Spider monkey is the most interesting species of the third grade of primates due to, well keep reading. They originate from rain forest and mountain forest of Central and North America (PIN). These monkeys are named for their long arms, tails and legs. The spider monkey moves through trees with great skill and are able to use their tail as an extra lim. The tail is used in almost every move they make, climbing trees, grasping branches, balancing and even protecting themselves from predators.
The female centaur is smaller than the male centaur. From what is visible beneath the fatal claws of the tiger, one could tell that the human and horse halves of the female centaur's body are fairer then that of the alive male counter part. The male centaur's torso is tan and muscular displaying the god-like image that the Greeks created their human forms under. The male centaur also shows dominance by the stance and position the artist shaped him in. He is reared up on his hind equine legs while he is lifting a massive boulder over his head.
It is the most primitive, and it includes true lemurs, galagos and lorises. This group of primates rely commonly on an ancestral trait known as olfaction, sense of smell. There ability to smell comes from a moist, fleshy pad, or rhinarium at the end of their nose along with a long snout. Uncommon in other primates, prosimians routinely mark their territory with scent (jurmain,208). A grooming claw on the second digit of their feet , and a dental tooth comb formed by forward projecting lower incisors and canies are some of their distinctive characteristics.
And although adult frogs breathe by means of lungs, they also breathe through their skin. The eggs of different species vary in size, color, and shape. A jelly like substance covers frog eggs, providing a protective coating. This jelly also differs from species to species. Some species of frogs lay several thousand eggs at a time.
This Disney movie revolves around african animals, so one might question how race could play a role in such a film. Well, looking closely and paying attention to detail one might notice that all the bad or “evil” characters (Scar, the hienas, buzzards, etc.) are much more darker in tone than the good characters (Mufasa, Simba, Zazu, etc.) or even other animals in general. Mufasa is portrayed as this all knowing, God like character when we first see him and even his son, Simba, has sun rays reflecting off of his light brown/golden fur when he is first
Essay # 2 There is only a two percent difference in DNA between humans and chimpanzee's. Chimps also known as Haplorhines and are one of the best known primates today. There are striking similarities between humans and chimps in the anatomy and wiring of the brain and nervous system. (Diamond 2008 a: 46) One of the most distinct similarities are the prehensility which is our grasping ability. Both the chimpanzees and human have opposable thumbs, which of course started out as a mutation but ended up being very positive for anyone who has it.
In the wild, red pandas seek satisfying safety and refuge in a number of places, mainly in the Himalayas and China. Also, they populate parts of Burma, Nepal, India, Bhutan, and Myanmar. Wherever a creature from this species is residing, it’s habitat should consist of deciduous or coniferous forests. In addition, a pretty consistent temperature as well as rainfall are mandatory for the well-being of this species. Collectively, the red panda population is about 11,000 to 20,000 worldwide.
