Like all baboons, the Hamadryas Baboon is primarily terrestrial, but will sleep in trees or on cliffs at night. As an opportunistic feeder, it will take a wide variety of foods, including grass, fruit, roots and tubers, seeds, leaves, buds and insects.Baboons may also hunt small mammals, including hares and young gazelles. The female Hamadryas Baboon usually gives birth to a single young, after a gestation period of 170 to 173 days. Breeding may take place at any time of the year, but the births typically peak between May and
Bonobo Species: Pan Paniscus Genus: Pan Family: Hominidae Environment: • Swamp forest near the rivers. • Primary forest grown on a firmer foundation. • Secondary forest resulting from clear-cutting. Eating habits: Fruits, leaves, pith, flowers, bark, seeds, honey, fungi, eggs, invertebrates (termites, caterpillars and earthworms) and small mammals, including shrews, flying squirrels, and small antelopes such as young duikers.

Residing in the jungles of Madagascar, the Aye-aye is a very unique creature in the Animalia kingdom and is the only member of its family classification. Since the Aye-aye has such a unique physique, it was originally classified as a rodent, but is now considered a to be a specialized lemur. Once thought to be extinct, the Aye-Aye is now being more adequately studied but researchers, biologists, and scientists alike. The Aye-Aye is a unique species of Lemur dwelling in the rainforests of Madagascar. Originally thought to be a large species of Squirrel, The Aye-Aye is the largest nocturnal primate in the world.
Technical Definition: The Squirrel Monkey is a primate that naturally inhabits South and Central America. Most are similar in appearance, consisting of a white color for the underbelly, a black and white head, red limbs and a reddish-gray hue for the fur coating on the back. The Squirrel Monkey is very short in stature, reaching only around twelve inches in height when fully grown. It primarily moves around using all four limbs and usually grasps onto something for support once stationary. Squirrel Monkeys are highly intelligent primates, having one of the largest brains compared its body size.
It is when animals have a limited amount of space to walk around unlike in their natural habitat. Basically, when the primates have their basic needs handed to them such as food and shelter instead of looking for it or hunting for it. In other words, when there is dependency on humans it can be said that it is captivity. The majority of studies cited in this research paper look into nonhuman primates. These are members of the order of mammals that include lemurs, monkeys, and apes.
They can also grow to about 4-8 inches for both male and female, and require a big enough cage, so, you should also make sure that you have enough room to house them. The following paragraphs will tell you everything you need to know about Crested Geckos. Food & Water: Crested Geckos eat crickets and powdered food such as:Repashy and Pangea.

Its diet consists predominantly of bamboo, about 95%; which is very atypical for a mammal. They occasionally feed on insects, fruits, and small organisms, including acorns, berries, mushrooms, bird eggs, mice, rats, lizards, and small birds. The red panda inhabit a narrow range extending from west Nepal to east and southwestern China. They are found in forests with quantities of bamboo. Reasons For Population
I felt as though as soon as someone hears the word “primate” the first thing that comes to mind are either: chimpanzees, gorillas or orangutans. Not to mention that I came into this course with more knowledge about the two New World Monkeys that we were given a choice of so I chose to focus on the White-handed Gibbon. When arriving to the zoo, I was
