Red Footed Tortoise – Chelonoidis Carbanaria
Habitat: Native to Central and South America, red-footed tortoises inhabit tropical forest and open grasslands.
During cold weather, red-foots can survive on minimal food because their metabolism slows down. They are most active during the day after rain. Males attract females by making a clucking sound.
Great Curassow – (Crax rubra)
Habitat: Prefers undisturbed humid forests. Most commonly found in park reserves and refuges
Range: Ranges from southern Mexico throughout Central America to western Ecuador.
Great curassows have long legs and are fast runners. They frequently rely on their running speed instead of flight to escape predation, using their wings to help them jump up trees.
