Alex Sone2: Перевод описания ультрадамы: New Zealand ultradama (Ultradama megaloceros) Order: Artiodactys (Artiodactyla) Family: Deer (Cervidae) Habitat: New Zealand, South Island; woodlands, shrubs in temperate and subtropical climates. The fauna of New Zealand before the advent of human epoch was the oldest and most distinctive fauna on Earth, with a high percentage of high-level endemic animal groups. But during the human epoch this peculiarity was violated. Man has exterminated many species of New Zealand endemics and introduced a large variety of animals to the islands. As a result, by the end of the human era, the fauna of New Zealand represented a bizarre mixture of wild and domestic animals from different parts of the world, with the addition of single descendants of the original indigenous fauna. Among the animals introduced to the islands were deer of various species, including the fallow deer (Cervus (Dama) dama). In their homeland, in the subtropical regions of Asia, fallow deer and many other deer became extinct due to strong anthropogenic pressure and habitat destruction, but in New Zealand they managed to survive, despite systematic operations to reduce their numbers. In the process of evolution, one of the descendants of the fallow deer turned into an animal of impressive size - the New Zealand ultradama. Ultradama lives in woodlands and mountain valleys, preferring areas of subtropical climate, close to temperate. This animal is a descendant of large deer species that appeared in New Zealand during the Ice Age at the turn of the Holocene and Neocene. Ultradama has retained the large size characteristic of its ancestors: the growth of this species at the withers reaches 170 cm, and its weight exceeds 400 kilograms. Males of this species are much larger than females (the weight of the female is approximately 2/3 of the weight of the male). Despite its massiveness, the ultradama retains the appearance characteristic of deer. The animal's coat has a reddish-brown color, and sexual dimorphism is clearly expressed in its color: female ultradamаs retain the spotty color characteristic of cubs throughout their lives. Males, on the other hand, have a single color without spots, and a brown mane develops on the sides and front of the neck. Another feature of sexual dimorphism is the development of horns. Females of ultradama are hornless, and in males the horns reach an extreme stage of development. The ultradama is characterized by a huge range of horns - up to 250 cm; in this way, this species of deer is only slightly inferior to the extinct big-horned deer Megaloceras. The horns of an adult male ultradama weigh about 100 kilograms, and this significantly reduces the speed of his running. In the highlands of New Zealand, fast-footed predators are rare, so males can be slow and heavy - for gene transfer, it is much more important to be attractive to females. The horns of the ultradama have a peculiar shape - the thick cylindrical base of the horn smoothly turns into a flat polygonal "shovel" (like the horns of an elk), on which up to five - six long and almost straight processes, directed to the sides and slightly upward, develop. Another process departs from the front edge of the base of the horn - straight, directed forward and slightly to the side. The horn of the ultradama develops to this state over many seasons. The first horns of a young male, growing at the age of one year, are straight, subulate, about 50 cm long. In the second year of life, the horn branches out - a short lateral process appears, and the “shovel” of the horn slightly expands. In the third year, the lateral process is already well expressed, and on the "shovel" there are short rudiments of the horns, which increase in length every year. The horns of the male ultradama reach full development in the eighth year of the animal's life. Ultradama females and males choose different habitats for life: females and young males (up to about two years of age) can live in a relatively dense forest, where it is difficult for the male to move because of the large horns. Males live in open woodlands and among bushes, where there are no obstacles to movement. Possessing a powerful constitution, they easily lay paths among the bushes and young forest stands along which a herd of such animals moves. Closer to the breeding season, animals form mixed herds, which are divided into a number of harems during the mating season. Antlers bring some inconvenience to males in life: often males of ultradamаs drown in swamps, as in the Pleistocene male big-horned deer drowned. But the decrease from accidents does not affect the reproduction of these animals - during the breeding season, males with huge horns gather the largest harem. Ultradama feeds mainly on the leaves of shrubs and low-growing trees, and also bites the tops of tall grasses. Due to such a diet, the teeth of the animal are relatively weak, and the jaws are long. Outside the breeding season, having shed their horns or having soft, incompletely formed horns, ultradama males are non-aggressive towards each other. They keep in herds of 10 - 15 individuals, feed and rest together. Calcium is vital for them to form horns, so males seek out and regularly visit limestone outcrops. In these places, they eat the soil and lick the limestone crumbling under the roots of plants. In autumn (in the southern hemisphere - in April) the horns of males complete development and ossify. Dead skin peels off them, and the males clean the horns, butting the tree trunks. And later, by the beginning of May, mating tournaments begin. Males roar trumpetly, challenging their rivals. The duel of males is very ritualized. Huge animals converge with each other, cling to the horns of the enemy, and wage a power struggle. Each male tries to pry off the opponent's horns with his horns from below and raise his head from the ground with the effort of powerful neck muscles. The defeated male retreats, and the winner emits a victorious roar. There can be up to fifteen females in the winner's harem. The female gives birth to two cubs with a spotted camouflage coloration. In the first weeks of life, they gradually try to eat grass, although they feed on milk up to four months of age. Young animals become completely independent at the age of six months. Sexual maturity of males occurs at the age of four years, and females give birth to offspring already at the age of three.

Alex Sone2: Перевод описания муравьиного прыгунчика: Ant elephant shrew (Myrmisengi saltator) Order: Elephant shrews (Macroscelidea) Family: Elephant shrews (Macroscelididae) Habitat: Zinj Land, tropical rainforests Elephant shrews are a group of mammals that are very characteristic of Africa and have retained a primitive type of structure. The split of Africa and the separation of the East African subcontinent (Zinj Land) led to the isolation of species that survived into human epoch. And the restoration of tropical forests has allowed some species to develop a new habitat - the undergrowth. In the forests of the Zinj Land, there is a large species of elephant shrews - the Shaggy elephantine sengi (Rhynchoporcus monstrosus). This is one of the largest species - its length is over half a meter. But next to it lives a small animal that moves by jumping on two hind legs - an ant elephant shrew. This tiny mammal is about 10 cm long, and the tail is about the same length. He has wide agile ears, large eyes and a agile sensitive proboscis. The hind legs of this animal are longer than the front ones; horny calluses develop on the underside of the fingers, which improve traction with the ground. The front paws are agile, with thin sensitive fingers. The coat of this mammal is short, reddish-brown in color, with a black longitudinal stripe from the back of the head to the base of the tail. The tail, paws and ears are bare, covered with dark skin. Two light yellow spots are located above the eyes, helping to recognize relatives in the twilight of the forest. This species of animals leads an unusual way of life and is looking for encounters with creatures that most of the inhabitants of the forest are afraid of. The ant jumper searches for the columns of wandering ants marching on the ground, and stays near them. Ants scare the inhabitants of the undergrowth with their presence and force them to seek a new shelter. And the ant elephant shrew easily notices and catches them. Another source of food is everything that the columns of ants accompanying them carry: caught insects and larvae, as well as pupae of the ants themselves. Thanks to its speed, this animal can snatch ants burdened with a burden from a column, and ferocious soldier ants simply do not have time to do anything. Also, this elephant shrew can hunt insects himself. It licks its prey with a long tongue covered with sticky saliva. These animals lead a solitary lifestyle, but do not have a clearly defined territory. If two animals of this species are found near a column of ants, a fight breaks out between them, accompanied by a shrill squeak and bites of the enemy in the shoulders and ears. Mating does not have a pronounced seasonal character. The male finds the female by smell, mates with her and immediately leaves her. After a pregnancy lasting about 6 weeks, well-developed cubs are born, able to move independently. The female brings three litters (1 - 2 cubs in each) during the year. The offspring stays with her for the first four weeks of life, after which they begin to hunt on their own. The ant elephant shrew grows very quickly: a three-month-old female is already becoming capable of bearing offspring. But the life expectancy of this species does not exceed three years.
