Anthropology 200 Zoo Trip Assignment Part VII. Short Essay (About one paragraph each) 1. How are all of the primates you just observed similar to one another? What  are some examples of characteristics (anatomical  and  behavioral) that they  share?     The primates I observed had many similarities.  One major similarity between them  was their locomotion patterns.  They all generally crawled or walked on all fours and  swung from branches or other things.  The diets of the primates also seemed very  similar, with many of the ones I observed eating some type of fruit and/or vegetable.  The primates also all had a lot of hair, covering most of their bodies.  The primates  were also similar in that they were sexually dimorphic, with the major indicator  usually being size.  All of the primates also seemed to be either curious or sleeping. 2. How do you think the zoo environment affects the behavior of the primates?  Give specific examples about Orangutans and at least one other species.  Given the dire endangered status these animals face in the wild, are zoos  helpful to primates? I definitely think that the zoo environment affects the behavior of the primates.  It is a  replication of a natural environment.  They are constantly being observed by humans  which could definitely impact the way they act.  The orangutans seemed to be bored,  which could be attributed to the lack of space at the zoo.  There simply isn’t the same

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
