Naked Mole Rat The Naked Mole Rat comes from Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya and spends nearly it's whole life underground. Similar to bees and termites, the colony is ruled by a Queen who is the only female to breed and can have up to 27 babies in a litter.
Oriental Small-Clawed Otter These otters occur around rivers and coastal waters, in India, South-eastern China, Nepal, Bhutan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand, in family groups of up to 12 animals. They are very vocal, with calls ranging from mewing like a cat to high-pitched whistling. This is the smallest otter species and weighs 5Kg. The largest is the Giant Otter weighing 30kg.
Penguin (Humboldt) The Humboldt penguin is a South American penguin that breeds in coastal Chile and Peru. Its nearest relatives are the African penguin, the Magellanic penguin and the Galápagos penguin. The penguin is named after the cold water current it swims in, which is itself named after Alexander von Humboldt, an explorer. The species is listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN.
Red Panda In spite of its name, the Red Panda may not be closely related to the Giant Panda, but may be distantly related to the racoon family, or, even be in a family of its own! Red Pandas tend to be active in the morning and evening and rest up during the day. Our Red Pandas often sleep in the trees in their enclosure where they feel secure.
Reindeer Reindeer are the only type of deer in which both male and female reindeer have antlers. Female reindeer retain their antlers until they give birth to their young in the spring. Keeping their antlers throughout the winter ensures they are able to compete for food while pregnant. Male reindeer shed their antlers each winter.
Rhino (Southern White) The name White Rhino is a corruption of the Afrikaans word weit, which means wide, a reference to its wide mouth. There are two sub-species of White Rhino, the southern and northern races. The northern is the rarest rhino, taxon numbering only 25 in the wild and 9 in captivity. The rarest Rhino species is the Javan which numbers only a hundred in the wild and none in captivity. The most spectacular decline in recent years has been suffered by the Black Rhino in Africa, down from 60,000 in 1970 to approximately 2,600 today, due to poaching for its valuable horn.
Ring-Tailed Lemur The Ring-tailed lemur lives in a wide range of habitats such as deciduous forests with grass floors, or forests along and also wet brush where few trees grow. However, it is thought that the Ring-tailed lemur needs primary forest (undisturbed) in order to survive. They are found in southern and south western Madagascar. Ring-tailed lemurs are social animals, living in groups of up to 24 individuals of both sexes where females are dominant.
Siamang Largest of all the gibbons, the Siamang was classified in its own genus, Symphalangus, until 1972. Both sexes are large, black and stocky in stature and possess a dark-grey throat sac which they inflate when making their loud, territorial call. The male screams his part while the female produces a series of barks. The Siamang has a diet of leaves, fruit, flowers and a small quantity of animal matter.
Six-Banded Armadillo The six-banded armadillo, also known as the yellow armadillo, is a species of armadillo from South America. It is found in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay and isolated populations in Suriname (there known as siksi-banti kapasi). Its body is usually yellowish in color, sometimes tan or light reddish-brown. It is a solitary terrestrial animal, living in many habitats from rainforest to grassland, but mainly found on open areas, such as cerrado plains. It is omnivorous, feeding on a wide range of plant and animal matter. It shelters in a den underground. Unlike most species of armadillo, the six-banded armadillo is mostly diurnal rather than nocturnal.
Slender-Tailed Meerkat Lives in family units of about ten individuals. They have very long fore-claws which are used for digging for insects and excavating their burrows. They are active during the early morning and evening, spending the rest of the time sun-basking and sleeping. One individual will always act as sentry on the look-out for predators, usually viewing from the highest bush or rock in the area. A typical sight of the meerkat is when they stand erect using their tail as a rest, like a tripod. !!<>!!Keep an eye on your adopted species via our live webcam.!!<>!!
Snowy Owl The male Snowy owl is almost entirely white whereas the female is slightly larger and has dark barring and spots over her head and body . These large owls breed on the Arctic tundra, where females lay a clutch of 3 to 11 eggs. Clutch size depends upon the availability of food, and in particularly lean times a usually monogamous pair of owls may not breed at all. Parents are territorial and will defend their nests against all comers - even wolves. A snowy owl's preferred meal is lemmings. An adult may eat more than 1,600 lemmings a year, or three to five every day. The birds supplement their diet with rabbits, rodents, birds, and fish. These owls sometimes remain year-round in their northern breeding grounds, but they are frequent migrants to Canada, the northern United States, Europe, and Asia. Lemming availability may determine the extent of southern migration, when owls take up summer residence on open fields, marshes, and beaches.
Squirrel Monkey Like most of their New World monkey relatives, squirrel monkeys are diurnal and arboreal. Unlike the other New World monkeys, their tail is not used for climbing, but as a kind of "balancing pole" and also as a tool. Their movements in the branches can be very rapid. They live together in multi-male/multi-female groups with up to 500 members. These large groups can, however occasionally break into smaller troops. They have a number of vocal calls, including warning sounds to protect themselves from large falcons, which are a natural threat to them. Their small body size also makes them susceptible to predators such as snakes and felids. For marking territory, squirrel monkeys rub their tail and their skin with their own urine. Squirrel monkeys are omnivores, eating primarily fruits and insects. Occasionally they also eat seeds, leaves, flowers, buds, nuts, and eggs. In the wild, they can live up to around 15 years, and can live into their twenties in captivity.
