My animal of choice is the Scarlet Macaw which lives in the emergent and canopy layers. Its species is almost extinct and they need to defend themselves. To do this they have to stay away from predators. They cannot do this when they need food and water and there are predators nearby and I think they need to defend themselves from extinction. Scarlet Macaws only have a beak that has the power of 500-700 pounds. I think they need stronger beaks to defend themselves and to eat much bigger prey and so their diet can change from small animals to somewhat large and medium animals. We can do this by making the beak bigger. We can also do this by making the beak much sharper. This will allow them to near more resources and to have bigger prey.
