(Minard, 1) When chimpanzee archeological sites were found in 2007 in West Africa, archeologist Julio Mercader along with primatologist Christophe Boesch observed the rocks used today by the chimpanzees in West Africa, the only chimpanzees to use rocks to open nuts, resemble those found at the prehistoric sites. (Bower, 24) Tool usage among wild chimpanzees may be dependant on the culture of each group. In Guinea, the size of the stick used by a chimpanzee to harvest ants depends on the type of ants. For ants that are more aggressive the sticks employed were twice as long as others to avoid being bi... ... middle of paper ... ...e Tools At Hand: Manual Laterality And Elementary Technology in Cebus Spp. And Pan Spp."

Ecology of Giraffa camelopardalis Made popular by their long necks and distinctive camouflage coats, giraffes are the tallest land animals in the world. Their incredible body gives them a very specific niche within the ecology of African savannahs and the Sahara desert. This essay will focus on the ecology of these non-territorial herbivores, primarily focusing different factors that affect giraffe herbivory including location, sex, and age; next, it will focus on the predator-prey relationships seen at waterholes in African savannahs between lions and large-mammalian prey like giraffes; and finally, it will concentrate on the competition, or lack thereof, that may influence giraffe character. Typically giraffes live in African savannahs, which includes grassland and lightwood land, but studies have shown that their preferred area changes throughout the year. Not only does this biome give them plentiful trees upon which to eat, its natural color provides a beneficial backdrop for their spotted camouflage coats.
The study of the Congo forest mouse gives us a greater perspective on how and inhabited environment by humans can effect the natural environment around us by building infrastructure on top of it.

One of their plan that benefit global tiger population is the Species Survival Plans (SSP), in which they focused on reinforcing the wild population and at the same time, establishing and prioritizing research, conservation, and management activities (Association of Zoos & Aquarium (AZA), 2009).

Finally, Species: Leontopithecus Rosalia or commonly called the Golden Lion Tamarin. Other local names in South America consist of: “Mico-Leão-Dourado” (Portuguese); “Sauí-Piranga” (Spanish), and simply called “Red Lion Monkey” (Rowe 1996; Kinzey 1997). Physical characteristics of the Golden Lion Tamarin that are unique to the species include the claws used for forage for food, climbing, hanging, and digging in the place of nails.
