Spider Monkeys

ImageGood Afternoon everyone! Today I’m going to talk about Spider Monkeys! These Monkeys are usually seen hanging on to separate branches of trees using all of their legs and even their tail giving them a appearance as a spider. Spider Monkeys use their tail as a fifth hand which grasps branches and helps them move. These mammals diet mainly consist of 90% fruits, nuts, seeds, insects, and bird eggs. Also Spider Monkeys play a very important role in spreading seeds of different plants throughout the rainforests of South Africa. Spider Monkeys search widely for food in groups, or troops of about 30 females, males, and babies. These Monkeys are territorial and they will defend against other groups of Spider Monkeys.

The Mammal that lays eggs!!

platypus

The platypus is a warm blooded, egg laying mammal with webbed feet and fine, waterproof fur. Unlike other mammals, the platypus lays eggs, typically two eggs, which cling to the female‚Äôs fur on her belly. The Female Platypus holds the eggs between her body and tail to keep them warm. The mom Platypus feed their babies by these two glands on their belly that releases milk and it oozes into the mothers fur, which the babies slurp off. Babies are born with teeth but they fall off when they get older. Platypuses live near freshwater rivers or lakes and create burrows for shelter and protection. They feed on freshwater animals and fish such as shrimp, crayfish, mayflies, mussels, earthworms, and dragonflies. Platypuses spend around 12 hours every day looking for food because, they must consume at least one quarter of its body weight each day. These mammals swim with their eyes, ears and nostrils shut, and can only stay underwater for a few minutes. Did you know that the Male Platypus is one of the few venomous mammals… And he can transport poison, causing really really bad pain to humans, through a spur on his hind foot. Here is a cool video I found of these guys swimming and hunting for food.

Good morning everyone! Today I am going to share with you a video I came across, its about a little dog name Janie. This poor little dog was hit by a car and abandond at the animal shelter. She had a broken back and was in so much pain and growled at everyone and wouldnt let anyone touch her. This another amazing animal rescue The Bill Foundation took her in and paid for her spinal surgery. After her surgery The Bill Foundation asked one of my favorite animal rescues Eldad Hagar from Hope For Paws to help Janie come over her fear of people. He worked with her and it took time but finally he made her over come her fear. This little doggie needs a home now please share her video so she can find an amazing home!!!

The Tiger is the BIGGEST species of the cat family. The Siberian Tiger lives in and near Forests in Siberia, some live in China and North Korea. Siberian Tigers differ from other tigers because they have fewer, paler stripes, and they also have manes. The diet of these large cats are Deer, Boar, Elk, Lynx, and Bear. They also eat smaller prey such as Fish, Rabbits, and Hares. Siberian Tigers usually hunt alone at night time. They been known to reach speeds up to 40 mph. An interesting fact about these cats are they are capable of dragging prey that would take more than one dozen to move. Siberian Tigers need to eat over 20 POUNDS of meat a day to support itself in the cold climate, it is capable of eating over 100 POUNDS in one setting. Female Siberian Tigers give birth to litters of 2 to 6 cubs, Which the raise with little or no help from the male. Cubs cant hunt until they are 18 months old. They stay with their mothers for two to three years until they go off on their own and find their own territory. Did you know that no two tigers have the exactly same pattern of stripes?

Great Whites

Hello everyone today I’m going to be talking about one of the largest predatory fish in the sea The Great White Shark. Great whites are not all white, their backs may be dark blue, gray, brown or black. These sharks may use and lose more than ONE THOUSAND teeth in its life time! These fish live for about 25 years, and they breed late in life. They don’t start to breed until they’re at least TWENTY YEARS old! Great Whites can consume about 11 tons of food and can eat a sea lion whole. Great White Sharks try to avoid fighting for food. When there is only enough food for one shark, they have a TAIL-SLAPPING contest! The sharks swim past each other, slapping the water surface with their tails, and often splashing the water toward the other shark. The one who gets the meal is the shark that delivers the most tail slaps.
