THE SCARLET MACAW

It is a large bird, which weighs about 1000 grams and 90 cm total length. It is the third largest of the birds, large part of its length due to the its tail that grows to 53 cm on average, it is longer than the body.

THE CARIBBEAN MANATEE

The Caribbean Manatee are victims of indiscriminate hunting to use their skin, meat and even your fat. The Caribbean manatee is sensitive to cold and low temperature results in a high mortality rate due to thermal shock. During the cold season, many die because your digestive tract is closed when the water temperature drops below 20 degrees Celsius. http://www.publimetro.co/vida-con-estilo/5-animales-en-peligro-de-extincionen-colombia/lmkmcv!wnYi7L39URNg/

THE GOLDEN FROG

The golden frog lives in Choco and threatened mainly by illegal mining and illegal logging, which affect their environment. The skin is infused with a poisonous alkaloid, common among common poisons which prevents the nerves to transmit impulses, leaving the muscles in an inactive state of contraction. This can lead to heart failure http://www.publimetro.co/vida-con-estilo/5-animales-en-peligro-de-extincionen-colombia/lmkmcv!wnYi7L39URNg/


THE GIANT OTTER

Adults are 1.5 to 1.8 meters long. The tail can represent up to 69 centimeters of the total body length. The weight ranges from 32 to 45.3 kg. They are carnivorous mammals. Hunting by humans has become the main problem for conservation. Water contaminants that affect the species come from mining waste, fossil fuel extraction and agriculture http://nationalgeographic.es/animales/mamiferos/nutria-rio-gigante


THE ORINOCO CROCODRILE

Its extinction began with the commercial exploitation of the Orinoco crocodile, for the purpose of fur and sell it on the international market. Currently, the main threat to the species is habitat destruction, the rivers are under the influence of mining, agriculture and industry, which has resulted in the pollution of the water and the reduction of usable habitat for the species. The Orinoco crocodile can reach a maximum length of six meters. Its color may be subject to change with age. http://nationalgeographic.es/animales/


THE PINK DOLPHIN

It is the largest river dolphin, the adult weight reaches 185 kg and can measure up to 2.5 m. The pink dolphin feeds mainly on fish, river turtles and crabs. Its main threat is the use of mercury in gold mining and extraction of poisons in plantations along the rivers also, overfishing for the extraction of oil from your skin http://nationalgeographic.es/animales/mamiferos/


THE SPECTACLED BEAR

This bear is the presence of white or yellowish patches around the eyes, His body grows to 1.8 m weight of adult males is around 140 kg. Has been intensively hunted by man, both because he is considered a danger and as "sport" and even superstitions (multiple locations claws are believed to have medicinal properties). http://nationalgeographic.es/animales/


THE TAPIR

They are medium-sized animals, with a length ranging from 1.8 m to 2.5 m, with a tail of 5-10 cm in length, and height at the withers of 70 cm to 1 m, weight 220-300 kg. The most common predators tapirs are big cats, who tries to get rid of jumping into the water or sprinting through the jungle. However, its main threat is human action, manifested by excessive hunting and habitat destruction http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapirus
