The gorilla, like us humans, are one of the few living representatives of the superfamily Homonidea remaining on our planet, as many have gone extinct. The gorilla is a mammal and belongs under the order of Primates, genus Gorilla, and the scientific classification of the species is Gorilla beringei, which was first described by Paul Matschie in 1903. There are two subspecies of Gorilla beringei; the eastern gorilla, classified as subspecies Gorilla beringei, and the western gorilla classified as subspecies Gorilla gorilla. The gorilla is an iconic animal because their ecology resembles humans’, as does their physiology and morphology. Their genetic similarity with humans makes them a great species to help unravel our very own evolutionary history.
Spider Monkeys can be very dependent creatures as they depend on their mothers for about 10 weeks after their birth. They travel in groups of two to three dozen. “According to some scientists, the spider monkey is the most intelligent of the New World monkeys.” (1) There are two main reasons that some groups of Spider Monkeys are endangered. One is that the destruction of their habitat. (They live in the tropical rain forests of Central and South America.)
Coral reefs are the second largest ecosystem next to tropical rainforests on Earth. The deterioration of coral reefs is a huge warning sign for everyone internationally to implement more policies on coral reef conservation. The problem that is happening internationally is the deterioration of coral reefs. Coral reefs are one of the most endangered ecosystems worldwide. For the first time in history they will be included on the World Conservation Union’s red list of threatened species (Oliver).
November 17, 2010 4th Degree Level of Social Behavior What animal is the largest primate in the world? You guessed it. The tropical forest dwelling, chest pounding, opposable thumbed and toed gorilla. Gorillas have many defining physical characteristics, starting with their stomachs. Their stomach size is larger than their chest due to the enlarged intestines, which digest the bulky fibrous vegetation they consume.
We also have the capability to interpret the different analysis that we have put together. We understand that are only few species of Monk Seal and we have the technology on how to identify them. According to (The Marine Mammal Center – Working with Endangered Species, (N.D.) “The Hawaiian monk seal is the most endangered pinniped in the U.S., with the population estimated at around 1,100 and decreasing at 4% per year. Researchers believe the low survival rates of juvenile monk seals are attributed to entanglement, predation and malnutrition.” (The Marine Mammal
TOAD-ALLY OUT OF CONTROL By Samantha Mirelez Cane toads, not only are they ugly but they can also kill off your native species if eaten or exposed to their poison. So forget the myth of toads causing warts because cane toads can cause a lot more damage than that! The Cane Toad is an invasive species in Australia. The cane toad is the largest species in the family Bufonidae. They are heavily built, and weigh up an average to about 1.8kg.
Some animals, like the elephant, take 16 years to reach full maturity. The loss of time, money, food, and labor would not be worth trying to domesticate an elephant. I would also want them to know that out of all the animals in the world only five have became farmyard animals. Those five are the sheep, the pig, the horse, the goat, and the great cow. The cow is one of the great wonders of our earth.
We only have five species remaining in the world today, and all of them are endangered. The Southern white rhinos were once found in large numbers across Southern Africa. They have horns and thick skin to protect themselves against predators like the lion and the hyena. But today, their biggest threat and enemy, is the human. This problem has become more public in the last two years and has drawn a lot of attention, which has resulted in international documentaries trying to raise awareness and support for these majestic creatures.
BRIEFING MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY THROUGH: E – Under Secretary Hormats FROM: OES – Assistant Secretary Jones SUBJECT: International Trade in Ivory The primary threats to African elephants as a species are loss of habitat and human predation. According to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN), hunting for ivory and meat historically has had the greatest impact on elephant populations in Africa. However, the IUCN believes that habitat loss and fragmentation may now be a greater threat than predation, as human settlements expand and international trade in ivory has been restricted. The African elephant is listed as “vulnerable” on the IUCN’s Red List of endangered species (the third highest level of risk). The IUCN estimates that about two thirds of Africa’s elephant populations are growing and about one third are in decline.
The Gharial there is less than 400 and the adults of the critically endangered gharial survive in the world today the gharials, which once almost became extinct and then the Gharial helped to boost of population and a critically endangered species.and year and than 2,000 gharial the crocodiles and the (Gavialis gangeticus) hand Hatched and then importantly, and more than 400 adults and the critically endangered gharial and the survive hand world today . Gharial,and they are almost became the extinct because the hunters for the valuable and skins, are today. The gharial (gavialis gangeticus), also the gavial the fish-eating.
