About Blue buck and extinction

Among the birds actually striking blue paper because usually live on the island, there is no natural predators to live where you can safely survive from predators, the majority of paper. However, in the past, striking blue light was living mammals. Nutrition (Blue Yellow), Blue is the animal nutrition Blue is the kind of horse nutrition (Hippotragus), the relatives of the disabled the nutritional and Ron nutrition. One species belonging to the genus occupies an area of ​​wide format typically blue nutrition form area in the southwestern region of South Africa, Cape region is limited formatting. However, much of the last ice age, when this species was distributed in the open area. As the climate warms, the meadow is replaced by shrubs and forest, probably would have been a possible cause. This paper is to live a green environment was vulnerable to climate change as a Mediterranean climate (Protea (Protea), which is a kind of live flowers in the Cape region right now endangered by climate change lies). But a bigger role than the right amount of people, circa 400 AD, people introduced, it would have been a factor. By the food competition at the same time, thereby also san does not even farming by introducing the quantity (As a result, the San hunter-gatherer peoples were nomads), as well as agricultural Bantu tribe living xylem. rinderpest rinderpest bigeunhan was hunting, and Blue nutrition is easy to move cattle become infected by the epidemic came to East Africa in the 1880s (Yale) after extinction of this paper, but In this paper, a rare year when the Dutch founded a colony on the Cape was seriously. The early traveler said, because it was found only relatively water-rich grassland animals they theory and Nutrition, to drink water on a regular basis, as well as the Sable Antelope. Blue nutrition primarily ate grass, and sometimes live in small groups of less than 20-player mode, and ate grasses, such as, such as the amount you eat.
