For most animals, mating is a “love ‘em and leave ‘em” situation. As a result, the ones that partner up for the long haul tend to capture our attention. Everyone loves the idea of certain animals being in it together for a while, like a fuzzy little marriage. Enter: the owl monkey.
The world’s largest land animals are not dainty eaters. An adult male elephant can easily eat a few hundred pounds of vegetation in a day, and damage much more than that in the process. As they forage, elephants uproot bushes, strip trees of their bark, and push them over to reach the highest branches. The path of destruction they leave behind them can cause irreversible damage to large swaths of flora.
