The Mountain Gorillas do not over exploit for rapid replenishment to occur. The Silverbacks food intake is about forty pounds of herbage per day (Simon, 2000). Since there are low amounts of fruit to obtain, the Gorillas usually feast on things that are comprised of at lease fifty percent water so they do not need to worry about water intake. Gorillas are non-territorial and live in groups called
In captivity, they must have 50% of their food insects and the rest fruits and vegetables everyday since they need all the protein they can get. They LOVE mealworms. Like lizards, they can get low on calcium so sometimes you sprinkle it on their food just in case for their vitamins. (: They are very social little guys and love to play. They need tall cages so they can climb while they can’t be out and about.
Burmese Pythons are dark-colored snakes with many brown blotches bordered in black down the back. The perceived attractiveness of their skin pattern contributes to their popularity with both reptile keepers and the leather industry. The pattern is similar in colour, but different in actual pattern from the African Rock Python (Python sebae), sometimes resulting in confusion of the two species outside of their natural habitats. The African Rock Python can generally be distinguished by its tighter pattern of markings, compared to the Burmese Python, which has bolder patterns, similar to those seen on a giraffe.  In the wild, Burmese pythons grow to 3.7 metres (12 ft) on average, while specimens of more than 4 metres (13 ft) are uncommon.
The white rhino is a grazer feeding on grasses. The Rhinoceros Socialisation: Rhinos live in home ranges that sometimes overlap with each other. Feeding grounds, water holes and wallows may be shared. The black rhino is usually solitary. The white rhino tends to be much more gregarious.
The mountain gorilla does little to no harm to its native ecosystem and crops. Over half of the world’s mountain gorillas can be found either in the high levels of elevation of the Virunga chain of volcanoes or the Uganda’s Bwindi Forest where they do not disturb or cause danger to their surrounding. Mountain gorillas also need little to maintain their healthy intake, as they feed on leaves,
The African species are the white and black Rhinos and the Asian Rhinos include the Indian, Javan, and the Sumatran Rhino (1). Today’s population consists of less than 24,000 Rhinos around the world. Nearly 90% of all remaining Rhinos live in South Africa. These beautiful creators weigh in weight on average from 750 pounds to 8,000 pounds and stand four and a half to six feet tall (1). Rhinos are also herbivores, meaning they are subject to grazing on grass, and some even prefer to eat the foliage of trees or even bushes.
They vary in color depending on habitat but can range from light brown to yellow-green to beige with red splotches. Even though they are called a tree snake they can also be found in grasslands, caves, rock crevasses and hollowed logs as hiding spots in the day time hours or for females to lay eggs. Female snakes typically lay between 4-12 eggs per clutch and can do so up to twice a year depending on resource availability and climate. The females can also store sperm to allow for egg production long after mating. These factors make it easy for the population size to increase rapidly when given ample resources.
(biotic). The desert hedgehog is an omnivore because it will eat insects such as beetles and wasps along with small vertebrates like mice and birds. The hedgehogs will also eat eggs and some plant material. An interesting fact about the hedgehog is how it protects itself against predators. It will roll into a ball so that its stiff spines are protecting itself.
To prevent dehydration sowbugs spend bright day light hours in damp dark habitats such as underneath stones, logs, leaf litter, and other debris. The need to be in dark damp places is an indication that moisture is an essential element to sowbug survival (Colorado State University Extension 2012). They often gather in groups, huddling together to reduce evaporation. At night, when it is dark and cool, sowbugs venture out and feed on fungi and decomposing organic material, including mulch and grass clippings. Sowbugs are mostly vegetarian, but considered omnivores (The University of Arizona 1997).
