HARPY EAGLE

Geranuk   The summer heat suits these large eagles that are native to tropical forests in Central and South America. Harpy eagles use their strong claws to snatch prey such as opossums, sloths, and monkeys from tall trees. Some Amazonian cultures believe these endangered birds guard against evil spirits. Adopt a harpy eagle to protect your loved one.

AFRICAN ELEPHANT

Geranuk   Weighing between 2.5 and 7 tons, the world's largest land animal also is known for its smarts, having the biggest brain among land dwellers. Found throughout Central, Eastern, and South Central Africa, wild elephants roam savannas, river valleys, dense forest, and thorn-bush habitats in search of food and water, transferring up to 350 lbs of food and 50 gallons of water per day to their mouths via their long, flexible trunks. Threatened primarily by poachers, habitat loss, and human-wildlife conflict, elephants move away from danger but will aggressively protect their family units, especially younger calves.

GERANUK

Geranuk   These small antelopes are only three feet tall, but their name means “giraffe-necked” in Somali. Gerenuks stand on their hind legs to browse on tall bushes in the desert and savannas of central Africa. You won’t find them in herds. They usually travel in a small group of up to five individuals. Surely you can find room in your heart for this dainty antelope.
