ossimitsjessie's animal obsession

Hai guys :) i’m inspired by my cousin amber (check out her tumblr! amboli) and she used to do “amber’s daily animal” type thing on her facebook, but i think i’m gonna start one here on my tumblr! :) this is my first animal for it!

Species: Dhole
They originate in Asia, and are about the size of a border collie. They are highly sociable and live in packs. Oddly, the packs often contain more males than females. Unlike many wild dogs, the dhole regularly hunts within its pack. They’re an endangered species and not many people know about them. The general color of the fur is a rusty red with very bushy tails. Dholes are very sociable creatures and use high pitched whistles similar to the calls of red foxes. They break off into smaller groups from the pack to hunt, and similarly to the african wild dog they let their pups feed first. These animals are highly intelligent and beautiful! I hope my little thing on them helped you! :)

Species: Rainbow Lorikeet

The Rainbow Lorikeet resides in coastal  regions across northern and eastern Australia, Papua New Guinea, eastern Indonesia, and some other rainforest-like islands. Their habitat consists of brush and woodland areas. The rainbow lorikeet is not hard to miss with it’s bright red beak and colorful chest and flanks (the sides of the bird located between the bottom of the wing and the abdomen). The rainbow lorikeet is a medium sized parrot with a wing-span of about 17 cm. Juvenile lorikeets have black beaks that gradually brighten to that orange-red color as adults. Rainbow lorikeets often travel in pairs, but can be seen in loud, large flocks. Rainbow lorikeets can be very aggressive defending their food and nesting areas and have been known to chase off smaller birds and even birds much larger than themselves! Rainbow lorikeets have these awesome tongues that are adapted just for their diet, they feed mainly on fruit, nectar, and pollen. You often see these bright birds in zoos, and most zoos allow you to get the experience of feeding them with small cups of nectar. The lorikeet can become very used to humans and act very well with them with the proper care like most parrots. Studies have shown that they even benefit from artificial feeding stations and prolific-fruit and flowering trees and shrubs. The rainbow lorikeet is a very common bird and is listed under the Least Concern tab by BirdLife International (BirdLife International, 2008).
