Anthropology 200 Zoo Trip Assignment Part III. Colobus Monkeys What is the genus and species of this animal? Colubus Angolensis What kinds of foods do they eat? Leaves, some fruits and flowers Being that it is afternoon, these animals are probably sleeping. Based on what they eat, do you think they spend a lot of time sleeping, or less time than animals who eat other kinds of foods? Why do you think this is? I think they spend less time sleeping because of their light diet. What is their locomotor pattern? How does this relate to the kinds of foods they eat? Climb, have to climb to get their food. They can leap 20ft from branch to branch What part of the forest do they live in? (i.e. upper canopy, lower canopy) They rarely descent to the ground and it was hard to tell from the picture at the zoo but I would say between the upper and lower canopy.

No Part IV. Gorillas Section A.  Please make sure to observe the indoor and outdoor gorilla exhibit as they seem to have  some indoors and some outdoors at all time during the summer months.  What is the genus and species name? Gorilla Gorilla gorilla What part of the world are they found? Central Africa Are they endangered or threatened?  Endangered 4

Anthropology 200 Zoo Trip Assignment Section B.  You are now going to engage in an activity called scan sampling. Scan sampling refers to  when the researcher records the behaviors of a group of animals at regular time intervals.  For this kind of sampling method, you should focus on a group of gorillas to observe.  You want to ensure that the group is not too large in size that you are unable to pay  attention to what all of them are doing at one time.   For at least a ten minute interval, observe the behavior of a group of gorillas and in a  qualitative way, indicate the behaviors that you observed in the space below. Write down  the time that you began and ended your observations.  Beginning time: 12:53 Ending time: 1:03 Number of animals present? 4  # of males? 1  # of females? 3 # of juveniles? 0

    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.
