Zanzibar Red Colobus
Zanzibar Red Colobus only takes up the residence in the area of coastal shrub on Zanzibar island off the coast of Tanzania. Zanzibar is one of the endangered species with the current number of just about 3000 individuals in natural environment. The Zanzibar people have a negative view of these monkeys and give them the name of “poison monkeys” because of their strange scent. They live in groups of nearly 50 individuals. Zanzibar Red Colobus eats leaves, seeds and flowers found in forests, coastal areas and swamps.

Poison Dart Frogs
Poison Dart Frogs originate from the rainforest in the Central and South America. With the size ranging from 1.5 to 6 centimeters, this is the most brilliant frog in the world.

These frogs have a variety of colors, from yellow, red to sapphire, black or mixed color. Of them, the frog in sapphire is the most poisonous species. Due to strange colors, they show the hunters their danger. Unlike other amphibians, dart frogs have no ability to swim because they do not own the membrane around their toes.
Tigers are the largest cat species. They are up to 3.3 meters in length and 300 kilograms in weight. The maximum life expectancy of tigers is 26 years.

The stripes on the coat help them to easily hide in the natural environment.
