Axolotl and Squirrel Monkey
by Aniket Kumar
  • The axolotl of Mexico is a curious animal-a salamander like no other. Axolotls never grow up. Instead they remain in tadpole stage of development-complete with gills-all their lives and even breed as tadpoles.
  • Can you believe that some animals have five feet – four normal feet and a prehensile tail that is a tail that can curl around a support and grasp it? Some of these animals are the furry Kinkajou, the woolly opossum, the silky ant eater, the spider monkey and the tree porcupine.
  • Guinea pigs and rabbits don’t sweat. If we were like them the deodorant manufacturers would be out of business.
  • The female red billed hornbill takes precaution against intruders by building a wall  across the opening of her nest. She then seals herself in and brings up her chicks in a ‘prison’.

Colugos are sometimes called flying lemurs, although they do not actually fly and they are not related to lemurs. Skilful climbers, colugos spend most of their time in trees. On the ground they are almost helpless.

Squirrel Monkey 

Primates are mammals, which means they are warm-blooded, have fur, and feed their young milk. Primates have large brains which makes them among the most intelligent creatures on earth. They have excellent eyesight with both eyes facing forwards, which gives them good depth perception. Nearly all primates are good climbers, because they are very agile and can grasp with their hand and feet, The primates order is divided into three groups :monkey ,apes, and prosimians. There are over 233 species of primates, which include 158 monkeys,14 apes and 61 prosimians. They are also from the old world, and the majority of prosimians live on the island of Madagascar, off the coast of Africa.
