These are the only extant entirely carnivorous primates: they are primarily insectivorous, and catch insects by jumping at them. They are also known to prey on birds, snakes, lizards, and bats. As they jump from tree to tree, they can even catch birds in motion.
These birds are a tropical member of the Pheasant family. They are thought to be ancestors of the domestic chicken with some hybridization with another type of its species. They were first raised in captivity at least several thousand years ago in Asia, and the domesticated form has been used all around the world as a very productive food source for both meat and eggs.
Carter has always been fascinated by the odd look of these guys so today he decided to do his trivia on them. The Great Hammerhead Shark is the largest species of Hammerhead.

Like other vultures it is a scavenger, feeding mostly from carcasses of dead animals. It usually disdains the rotting meat, however, and lives on a diet that is 90% bone marrow. They can swallow whole bones up to the size of a lamb’s femur and its powerful digestive system quickly dissolves even large pieces.
It is found on mountains in Europe usually above 3,300 ft up to 6,600 ft, preferring flowery meadows and mountain pastures. This species is of interest to entomologists due to the variety of subspecies, often only restricted to a specific valley in the Alps.
Marine life is under severe threat from global warming, pollution and habitat loss, with a high risk of “major extinctions” according to a panel of experts.
An adult of these cats are about twice the size of a domestic cat, with a head and body length that typically ranges from 22 to 31 in, and a 7.9 to 12 in long tail. A few much larger individuals have been reported, of up to 45 inches in head-body length. Adults can weigh from 11 to 35 lb.
Predators of these guys include the Horned owl, Andean fox, Magellan fox, cougar, and other small cats. They are a wary animal that moves slowly and stops often, smelling the air for scents of predators. Being a proficient climber, jumper, and sprinter, they flee in a zigzag path when being pursued.
Let’s talk about Global Climate Change; did you know that “it is estimated that more than 1/3rd of the Earth’s animal species and almost 20% of the plant species face extinction by 2050 if we maintain our current greenhouse gas trajectory.”
