WEEPING FIG Like many canopy trees, the leaves on the Weeping Fig have special ways to get do away with of excess water. Weeping Figs point downwards and have drip tips at the end of each leaf to allow the water to run off quickly. The downward-pointing drip tips allow swift elimination of water from the leaf surface. This allows the leaves to breathe after tropical downpours.
GOELDI MONKEYS Goeldi’s monkeys are little, primates originating in the upper Amazon. They are very agile and are able to leap several meters between branches. Goeldi’s monkeys have claws that assist them in clinging on to branches, while their tails allow them to balance on narrow branches. Their ability to leap from one branch to another made possible because their eyes allow 3D vision to judge distances.
