THE LIFE IN TREES:
Useful things are hands, eyes. 200 different animals who are like humans and we call
Hands give the true character of the lemur. Not his nose or his tail. Lemurs live on
grounds and trees (more on ground).
Lemurs were on earth since around 14 to 15 million years. Madagascar was separated
from Africa and it became a paradise for lemurs.
A type of primates jumped longer and had powerful hind lengs which enabled it to
The largest of the lemurs, the embrion hunt in night instead of the night so they
adapted to hunt at night because in the day they had competition with monkeys and
monkeys sleep at night so the lemurs didn’t have trouble at night. They had huge and
snot, wet nose that help them at night.
Another type of monkeys who live in south America marmosets also hunt at night.
They eat of food and insects. They mark their tress by the scent of their urine. Each
territory is a male a female and their young. They threat by screaming or showing
their ass. They represent link b/w lemurs and other monkeys.
Howlers howl to decide their territories. Can be heard till 5km. The bigger the father

tails halp them to get the best leaves from the end of the branches. Their sense of
smell is dull so they have to put the food close to their nose in order to identify it. also
selects it by smell and colour and these howlers have very distinct colors even better
than lemurs and they have the best color vision in mammals.
There are differences in species living in south America and in other parts of the
worlds. None of the African monkeys have grasping tails like the south American
monkeys. The baoons tend to live better on the ground than trees. They eat roots and
meat from insects asnd also monkeys if they can catch them. they live on the ground
but their is also danger like lions. The males give threat signals by popping out their
Mount gibralter also has monkeys. The muckrake is the most adaptable monkeys of
all. They are in Afghanistan and japan. In the japans alps the mackak has a dense and
warm fur for the snow. They need to gather food everyday and they have to dig
through snow in order to search for it. one population has discovered hot springs to
keep themselves warm. They sit all day in a hot bath to stay away from the cold. They
