are native to India, but can live in many parts of the world in captivity. There are many different kinds of peacocks including the Indian Blue, Black Shouldered, Congo, Green, and White peacocks. White peacocks are the same as the Indian Blue in size and behavior, but are white.
In the wild, male Peacocks generally accumulate a harem of 2 - 5 females. However, in captivity, they are usually satisfied with one. The male has an extremely long train (commonly called his tail) which is NOT actually his tail. The train serves as a cover for the actual tail, which is brown. The train actually sprouts from the center of the back. Peacocks grow to 7' from tip of beak to end of train.
monkeys are animals rarely seen in the wild. They are about 5-6 inches tall and they have claws instead of nails. They are native to the rainforest canopies of western Brazil, southeastern Colombia, eastern Ecuador, eastern Peru, and northern Bolivia.
A few months ago, scientists discovered a ‘new’ frog! So tiny, only the size of a pea when full-grown, this diminutive creature is the second smallest frog in the world. Although specimens of the little creature have been seen in museums for more than 100 years, they had been misidentified as juveniles of other species. The ‘new’ frog, called Microhyla nepenthicola, was discovered living in and around pitcher plants in a national park on the Southeast Asian.
THE SAND CAT
(Felis margarita), also known as the sand dune cat, is the only felid found primarily in true desert, and has a wide but apparently disjunct distribution through the deserts of northern Africa and southwest and central Asia. Since 2002 this small cat has been listed as Near Threatened by IUCN due to concern over potential low population size and decline.
