Designer Animal

Tentorium simtah

Hanging monkey cheetah

What will it eat?

Our animal eats fruit and leaves from tall trees in its environment. In our environment, there are tall trees with high leaves and fruit as well as a smaller plant with nuts.

How will it catch and get food and water?

It will climb on the trees and get the fruit and leaves with its hands. The water that they drink will come from the juicy fruits they eat. By using their sharp claws on their hands, they can easily grab hold of fruits in the high trees as well as easily climb up the trees.

How will it keep warm and cool?

Their fur can be shed in the hot summers and in the cold winters their hair grows back to keep them warm. They have adapted to their climate, although the climate stays very moderate year round, by taking advantage of their fur that they shed/grow.

Where will it take shelter?

The Designer Animal will take shelter at the top of the tall trees, right under the leaves to keep cool and warm. One adaptation our animal has is its sharp claws which allow it to climb high and support its body weight while hanging from the branches of tall trees.

How will it protect itself from predators?

It can use its sharp teeth from the baboon and its fast aerodynamics from the cheetah to get away, and also by climbing higher up in the trees. Because of its strong legs, our animal is able to accelerate very fast which helps when it needs to escape from animals. If the animal needed to fight back instead of running away, it can use its sharp teeth.

How will it defend its young from predators?

The Designer Animal will have a pouch from a kangaroo that the young can go in to stay safe while they're running from predators. It can also hang onto their moms like a monkey. While running at the high speeds, its young can be held in the pouch.

Year 2600

1.) The razor sharp teeth are beginning to form within the mouth of our animal. They only have a few forming and do not have a full set yet. They are also teething (ex: chewing at the bark of a tree) This adaptation helps them right now to eat some of the harder fruits and some of the nuts.

2.) The pouch on their stomach is beginning to form slightly. This pouch will be used to hold their young for when the young are first born and to also help protect them from predators. If a predator is beginning to attack, the young can use the pouch for safety and comfort.

3.) More and more muscles are beginning to form within the legs of our animal. The muscles are few as of right now and are not at their full potential just yet. The animal can use the few extra muscles to run a bit faster as well as climb trees better.

4.) Because a sloth normally has only 2 to 3 toes on each foot, the extra toes are just now beginning to form, but are facing forwards like the rest. This adaptation of the extra toes can help the animal support its body weight better as well as the body weight of their young that may lay on them.

Year 3000

1.) The animal now has fully grown adult teeth that are very sharp and strong. They have evolved into a full set (instead of only a few) This adaptation is used to eat the hard fruit or nuts that are found in the tall trees where they primarily are. They also can use their teeth as defense sense they are so sharp. This adaptation comes from the present day Baboon

2.) The animal now has a pouch that has fully developed and is large enough to fit its young. The pouch is used not only to help its young keep comfort during any chilly nights, but also to protect the young. If a predator is approaching, the young can go into the pouch while the animal flees or fights. This adaptation comes from the present day Kangaroo

3.) The legs have now also fully developed and has all of the muscles needed to make up its string and powerful legs. The legs also have beneficial aerodynamics for speed. This adaptation helps the animal flee from predators by being able to run at very high speeds and also climb trees quickly, even while its young may be holding on to them. This adaptation comes from the present day Cheetah.

4.) The toes on the feet have now rotated facing backward. What this means is every other toe (this being the first and the fourth toe) is now facing in the opposite direction so it can, for instance, wrap around and hold a grip on branches. This adaptation can be used to, as stated, hold a strong grip on branches which then helps our animal to support the weight of them and their young while sleeping or climbing high into the trees while hiding from predators or looking for food. This adaptation comes from the present day Parrot.
