I live in the rain forest. I am very slow and have difficulty walking due to my huge claws. But I am a great swimmer ! a) JAGUARJAGUAR b) ANACONDAANACONDA c) SLOTHSLOTH d) HOWLER MONKEYHOWLER MONKEY
Scientific Name Alouatta caraya Size Howler monkeys range in size from 22 to 36 inches tall. Weight They weigh from 8 to 22 pounds. Description Only the male Black Howler Monkey is black.The female is lighter, so are their babies. Food They basically eat leaves but sometimes they eat fruits and even maggots. Habitat The Black Howler Monkey lives in the Rain Forests of southern Brazil. Other Facts The Black Howler Monkey lives in the canopy of the Rain Forests. They are mammals. They are a species of New World monkeys. The Black Howler Monkey is the largest primate in the New World. The Howler Monkey communicates by loud penetrating sounds.
Description: The jaguar is the only member of the genus Panthera (big cats) to be found in the Americas where it is considered the New World equivalent of the leopard. Its coat is basically yellowish-brown but can vary from almost white to black. Its back is marked with dark rosettes and the lower part of the tail is ringed with black. Jaguars weigh anywhere from 90-120 kg (males) and 60-90 kg (females). Habitat: Jaguar habitat requirements include dense cover (forest, brush, grass) water, and sufficient prey. In general, they occur in a wide variety of tropical habitats, ranging from montane forest and wet savannah to tropical rain forest and deciduous tropical forest. They are especially common near rivers, streams and lagoons and have been known to use roads and trails for travel and hunting. Diet: Although known to feed on large prey such as deer, tapir, and peccary, jaguars are opportunistic feeders often feeding on smaller animals, like capybara, sloths, armadillos, and fish. Threats to Survival: Threats to the jaguar include habitat loss, hunting, and development throughout their range. Hunting and export are still allowed in some Central American countries and restrictions in other countries are poorly enforced; even if hunting is prohibited. Loss of forest habitat is a major concern for the decline of the species as estimates of deforestation rates in Latin America are among the highest in the world.
Appearance: They have long gray or brown hair that blends in well with the surrounding environment, making it difficult for predators, such as the jaguar, to see them. This hair curves in the opposite direction of most other mammals: from the stomach to the back. Their hair is often covered with a coat of blue-green algae during the rainy season. This algae provides camouflage. They grow to a length of between one and a half and two and a half feet (in about 2 1/2 years). Their ancestor, the Giant Ground Sloth, which lived before the last ice age, reached the size of the modern elephant. Food and Drink: They eat leaves and buds. The two-toed species also eat twigs, fruits, and small prey. Their low rate of metabolism enables them to live on relatively little food. They do not have incisors and crop leaves with their hard lips. Their teeth grow continuously, as they are worn down by the grinding of their food. They don't drink but get their water from eating juicy leaves & licking dewdrops. Defense: They can defend themselves with sharp claws, but their main form of protection is their camouflage. Predators, beside people, include large snakes, harpy and other birds. Also, jaguars and ocelots are a danger when the sloth is on the ground. On the ground it pulls its body along because it can't walk on its feet. Surprisingly, sloths are good swimmers. What They Do Upside Down: They do most things upside down: eat, sleep (an average of 15 hours per day), mate, and give birth. Because of their upside down life, many of their internal organs (liver, stomach, spleen, pancreas) are in different positions from other mammals. Sloths sometimes let out a cry or hissing sound. Going to the Ground: During the rare times they go down to the ground (such as to change trees for food), they move along by dragging themselves by their hands. They can stand on their feet, but cannot walk on them.
Anaconda (snake), common name for large South American snakes of the boa family. Anacondas are among the largest and most powerful snakes in the world. The common anaconda is the longest snake in the western hemisphere and the heaviest snake in the world; a large adult may be 6 m (20 ft) long and weigh 107 kg (235 lb). Anacondas kill their prey by constriction or squeezing. The common anaconda inhabits the river systems of northern and Amazonian South America east of the Andes. The yellow anaconda is much smaller, usually not exceeding 3 to 4 m (10 to 13 ft), and lives in the river systems of southern South America. Female anacondas give birth to living young. Scientific classification: Anacondas belong to the family Boidae. There are four species, all in the genus Eunectes. The common anaconda is classified as Eunectes murinus, and the yellow anaconda as Eunectes notaeus.
