Harlow’s experiment i Attachment in Rhesus Monkeys Harlow’s experiment ii Abstract In the past 30 years, the work of Harry Harlow using rhesus monkeys while researching learning was criticized for the cruelty imposed onto animals. He noticed that many young monkeys kept in isolation became distressed when he cleaned out their cages. From there, he went onto researching attachment issues, providing the baby monkeys with surrogate mothers and observing their behavior. While most agree that he contributed to the science of early bonding and perhaps the keys to love, criticism revolves around the issue of using animals for research. This paper examines Harlow’s life and his advances in early development research.
They are also diurnal. Gila monsters lay 2 to 13 eggs and they mate in the spring but don’t lay them until summer.

The average Florida Panther needs about three thousand calories per day to keep them going. Pregnant females need about eight thousand calories and growing kittens need about twenty thousand calories per day to survive. They tend to eat larger animals, such as deer and wild pigs, but also eat raccoons, armadillos, rabbits, and other smaller game. They are not all carnivorous though, they will occasionally eat some plants. At night, when this remarkable animal is wide awake, they travel in zig-zag patterns while they hunt and defend their territory.
At least 5 billion US tax dollars are poured into animal experiments every year. Rabbits are routinely blinded by having various products forced into their eyes. Although the test does not guarantee human safety, it protects companies from potential lawsuits by their consumers. Laying hens are usually kept five or six to a fourteen inch square cage, and as many as 20% die of stress or disease from these living conditions. Of the ten million cows kept for milk in the US, at least five million live on factory farms in conditions that cause tremendous suffering to the animals.
Where is the largest group of cheetahs found and how many are there? The largest wild population of cheetahs is found in Namibia. 2500 4. What is the cub mortality rate? The cheetah has suffered from inbreeding, high infant mortality, loss of habitat, a reduction in its prey base, conflicts with livestock farming, and a reduced ability to survive in parks and reserves due to the presence of larger predators.
Identify two ways that Humans may effect the environment may live in? Humans are the biggest threat to the species. Encroachment along forest fringes, indiscriminate logging and hunting the mammals for meat are taking a toll on monkey habitat and extant numbers. Evaluate how well your chosen animal is being cared for by humans. Do you think we are caring for this animal as God would have us care for them?
. While elephants are the heaviest; giraffes are most certainly the tallest animals on earth; growing upwards of 20 feet tall. Giraffes are browsers which basically means that they feed on twigs and leaves from the tops of tree but generally do not eat grass. A giraffe’s remarkably long neck allows them to reach foliage that is otherwise untouched. Giraffes eat a lot too; up to as much as 66 pounds a day.
The Brown Tree snake is a native snake to Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Melanesia. This snake is known to have a dark brown color and can grow up to 9 ft long a little above the average wild snake size. These snakes feed on birds, lizards, bats, small rodents, and occasionally other snakes. Due to the lack of natural predators in certain areas and an excessive amount of prey, the population of these snakes is bound to increase. They are commonly found in trees, caves, and the ground and near limestone cliffs.
That is no life for such an intelligent animal. Don’t get me wrong though, the Bronx Zoo has definitely improved since 1906 when they put Ota Benga, a 4 foot 11 inch, 103 pound African man, on display in the monkey pen. This poor man was captured from the Mbuti Pygmy tribe in Africa. At the age of 23 he was shown around and if even referred to as a human, he was referred to as a boy because of his small stature. Being kept up in a cage his entire life, Benga began to become extremely depressed.
