The toucans live in flocks of 5 or more. They are very noisy, and the
vocalization is a monotonous call. They have an elegant short flight
and don’t fly far. They are more agile on trees, where they can jump
from one branch to another. The color of the plumage lets them go
unnoticed among the tree tops, where they perch, specially when
they sit calmly, since the colors harmonize with the environment.
This omnivore is frugivorous, having mainly papaya, mango,
banana, insects, spiders, termites, eggs and small vertebrates like
tiny birds, rodents and lizards.
But there was a problem, there wasn’t any more food
This species is very sociable, making up groups of 6 to 10 headed by an experienced
male, although in other communities leadership is shared among several males.
Chimpanzees don’t like to be in water and usually can’t swim.
They spend most time on the ground, though they may possibly climb on trees, where
they are commonly seen working together on a group nest with branches and leaves.
These nests are also built during the day and used for resting.
Omnivorous. Their diet is mainly composed of fruit, complemented with sprouts and
leaves. They can also eat ants and other invertebrates, birds’ eggs and honey. They can
prey on other inferior primates and small mammals.
But there was a problem, there wasn’t any more
food for them.
They are the only sociable felines. They live in herds integrated by a dominant male
and several females with their cubs.
They are more active at night. During night hours, they generally hunt and is the
lioness which hunts most of the times. They hunt in groups; one or two females get
close to the prey while the other lionesses are hidden in strategic places making a
perimeter around the animal they want to catch. When the females are near the
prey, they pounce on it finishing the hunting. But if the prey manages to scape, the
hidden lionesses attack.
They are carnivorous, they eat antelopes, zebras, buffaloes, and other mammals
hunted by females.
But there was a problem, humans want to get them
to the Zoo.
As this species lives in matriarchy, females form numerous herds together with the
young, and are headed by an older female. They only join the male herds in the
mating period, during which the male fight for access to females. The herds move in
search for food depending on the season.
They are herbivorous, they feed on any kind of vegetation near them.
But there was a problem, lions want to eat them.
These are very sociable animals, grouped in stable families formed by one dominant
male and many females.
The herds migrate during the dry station in search for more favorable zones with
grass and water. They can spread to avoid competition for the scarce food.
One of the most popular protection strategies occurs thanks to the stripe pattern of
their fur. It serve as a kind of protection from predators, When zebras group
together, their stripes make it hard for a lion, a leopard or hyena to pick out one
zebra to chase and get confuse. Different zebra species have different types of
stripes, from narrow to wide ones.
Herbivorous. In addition to browsing on the lowest herbs, they eat grass and some
leaves. They graze for many hours each day, using their strong front teeth to clip off
the tips of the grass.
But there was a problem, lions want to eat them.
The chimpanzees and the toucans were
constantly competing for the food, specifically,
the fruits of the trees. Since the toucans were
living in groups of 5 and the chimpanzees in
groups of 10, almost always the chimpanzees
won the fights.
The only advantage of the toucans was that they
could fly but the monkeys didn't stay behind
because they were very agile and could climb.
Little by little the toucans were giving up and
began to die. But one of them had a great idea
they could look for another place where they
did not have competition with the food and
because of it, they emigrated to South
In the jungles of Africa there were serious
problems between the lions and the buffaloes
and zebras. The buffaloes are herbivorous so
they feed on all kinds of vegetables near them
and the zebras, animals that feed of pasture.
These animals abound in food, on the other
hand, the lions have to hunt, and the worse
thing for the buffaloes and the zebras was that
they were the dam.
Across the time these two animals were
extinguishing, since many were grouped in
herds and they were moving along the risk of
the death of the whole herd in case of an
assault of the lions but also they counted with
the advantage that in herd they could defend
better than alone. The lions without this food
would die or buffaloes and zebras would die.
At the end there was found a solution in those
moments they food was skimping for the lions
and there were skimping the quantity of
zebras and buffaloes. For which the
intervention of the man was inevitable.
This produced the salvation of these species,
they took them to different zones with
sufficient resources for a good life apart from
any risk. The animals were safe of the assault
of the lions. Because they had moved to such
as zoological places by healthy food and
without harming the existence of any animal.
The zebras and the buffaloes are free animals
the majority, others led in the zoos so people
can see them.
