Humans and nonhuman primates have virtually the same physical and behavioral characteristics; however, there are several aspects that distinguish them from one another.The grey mouse lemur is a primate that are small and very active during the night because that is when they do their hunting. There are various types of gray mouse lemur that can be found in the forest of western and eastern madagascar. According to BBC Nature Wildlife Website, gray mouse lemur prefer to be isolated from other primates to be foraging during the night; however, during the day they enjoy socializing with others as a group. Several things they forage in the nights are insects, fruits, flowers, and other plants. As stated in the Animal Adversity Web, over 250 grey mouse lemur can be found in captivity worldwide.
Sloths are a medium-sized mammal. There are two types of sloth the two-toed sloth and the three-toed sloth, they are classified into six different species. Although they 're largely similar, two-toed sloths are slightly faster, larger and have a more varied diet compared to the three-toed variety. All living sloths have in fact three toes; the "two-toed" sloths, however, have only two fingers. They are weird looking characterized by slow movement in the trees.
Howler monkeys have prehensile tails, or tails that can grip onto anything. According to National Zoo, ”Males measure 24 to 26 inches (60 to 65 centimeters) long with a 24 to 26 inch tail (60 to 65 centimeters).” The Howler Monkeys use their tail to help them grip onto branches as one tries to eat and move around the same in treetops. The tail of a howler monkey acts as a fifth limb for them, which is very ideal for their movement through the
Species Name: Cheirogaleus brevi Common Name: Short-Tailed Dwarf Lemur Physical Features: The Cheirogaleus brevi is a small primate, weighing between 110 and 150 grams with a head and body length averaging 21 centimeters. They are covered in soft, light brown fur, that is usually streaked with white and grey stripes. The stripes are concentrated on the stomach, and slowly radiate out to cover the entire body. The color of the fur acts as forest camouflage to prevent predator attacks. Their large eyes are front-facing with small, grey irises, and their ears are large and upright.
Island foxes inhabit the semi-arid Channel Islands of California. Though most of those islands have been modified to suit human living, these foxes prefer to remain in the shrubby, woodland area of the island. Their role in the environment is predator. By this, they reduce the number of insects, native fruits, deer mice, birds, and
The screech owls colors are brownish or also a little gray or sometimes white. There colors keep them safe. The smallest screech owl in north america is the eastern screech owl. Screech owls mainly feed on insects,reptiles and small mammals like mice birds and other small insects.

(They) eat insects with soft bodies and different types of spiders.” SoftSchools.com also stated, “Due to their small size, glass frogs are easy target(s) of large predators. Main enemies of glass frogs are snakes, mammals and birds.” In the wild, Glass frogs usually live between 10-14 years.
Rubber boas are known for preying on deer mice, voles, shrews, etc. but some of their recent behavior shows that they will eat lizards, baby birds, baby bats and to a lesser extent snake eggs.

They have a tail that is 706 mm long for females and 829 mm long for males. They weigh between 6-11 kg, with the males being slightly larger than the females.

The species that I will focus on for the purpose of this paper is Galago moholi bushbabies (G. moholi). It can be hard to distinguish bushbaby species from one another by morphology alone; instead they focus on vocalizations and genetics to classify them. G. moholi are small prosimian primates that have distinctive features made specifically for nocturnal and arboreal existence (“Bushbabies brought,” 2012). They have large round orange eyes for night vision, oversized naked ears for acute hearing, and long tails for balance (“Bushbabies brought,” 2012). Their huge orange eyes are surrounded by thick, dark, eye-rings

They consist of a greyish-brown color on their shoulders and back, in addition to having white fur on their limbs and stomach (Lang, 2005). These primates are herbivores, meaning they eat predominantly plants and fruit. However, they have been known to hunt for insects, as well. The average lifespan of the cotton-top tamarin is about 23 years (in captivity) (Bridgeman, 2002). In addition, the cotton-top tamarin is known to be diurnal, similar to humans, meaning it sleeps at night and hunts in the early hours of the day.
