Pygmy Three-Toed Sloth

The pygmy three-toed sloth, also known as the monk sloth or dwarf sloth, are found on a small island off the coast of Panama.

The IUCN lists the pygmy three-toed sloth as critically endangered. Threats to the sloth's survival include timber harvesting and human... Read More

Education, education, EDUCATION! If people knew how many of these poor animals die just during transport via the black market, maybe they wouldnt contribute to the poaching by purchasing them as pets!

#3 Panda

Panda

This peaceful creature with distinctive black and white coat is adored by the world and considered a national treasure in China. Despite their exalted status and relative lack of natural predators, pandas are still at risk.

#5 Tarsiers

Tarsiers

Tarsiers are nocturnal creatures. So beautiful and unique. They hunt by sight and sound and have the biggest eyes in the animal kingdom due to which they are difficult to rotate. But there is a joint between the base of their skull and spine which allows them to rotate their head 360 degrees, almost similar to owls. The majority of Tarsier species are now endangered or threatened, and some are... Read More

Tarsiers are nocturnal creatures. So beautiful and unique. They hunt by sight and sound and have the biggest eyes in the animal kingdom due to which they are difficult to rotate. But there is a joint between the base of their skull and spine which allows them to rotate their head 360 degrees, almost similar to owls. The majority of Tarsier species are now endangered or threatened, and some are designated critically endangered. Threats include habitat destruction and fragmentation, hunting, agricultural pollutants and human disturbance. Tarsiers are very shy animals that prefer to stay away from human contact.

A large variety of plants rely on bats for both pollinating AND spreading seeds. In the US, bats are also critical for insect control.

My favorite of ALL of the animals! If I were single and had no kids, I would be in Borneo NOW, helping raise orphans for release back to the wild!

#9 Lion-Tailed Macaque

Lion-Tailed Macaque

Lion-Tailed Macaque are so beautiful. I actually saw them once few years ago. They live in the forested areas of the great Western Ghats, a mountain range in southwest India. Unfortunately these beautiful animals are endangered. The biggest threat they are facing is deforestation. Also in some areas, they are caught as pets and also hunted for food.
