    • The Siberian flying squirrel is a nocturnal arboreal rodent, which nests in tree cavities, twig dreys, and nest-boxes.
    • The authors remind us that no living primate has such hands and feet ‘for any purpose other than to meet the demands of full or part-time arboreal (tree dwelling) life.’
    • Within the ground beetle family, a few eat seeds, a few concentrate near water, and some readily climb trees and consume arboreal insects, including aphids and forest tent caterpillars.
    • Many species of the salamander genus Bolitoglossa are arboreal (tree living), rather than typically terrestrial, and their feet are modified for climbing on smooth surfaces.
    • Others have countered that small land-dwelling dinosaurs learned to fly without ever developing arboreal habits: no trees were needed.
    • The Namai zone belongs to the birds, tall trees and arboreal mammals.
    • Many small and some large tetrapods with no obvious arboreal features can get into trees.
    • Sweet observed a male of the small arboreal species V. glauerti descend the home tree of one female and travel more than 300 yards in a straight line, through dense forest and rock outcrops, to the base of another tree.
    • Nocturnal and arboreal, they clamber up trees and hang from limbs thanks to long prehensile tails and opposable inside toes (like thumbs) on their hind feet.
    • As most primates are arboreal and/or feed in trees, they require a high degree of balance and coordination and ethanol-impacted infants should fare poorly.
    • Depending on their location, sagebrush lizards are saxicolous, arboreal, or generalize among different habitat types including sand dunes.
    • The low number of contacts with the surrounding vegetation may be important in reducing the probability that smaller arboreal predators will access the nest tree.
    • For example, it is hypothesized that birds must have evolved flight from trees, so their ancestors must have been arboreal.
    • Cracids are arboreal birds, nesting, roosting and foraging in the trees.
    • It is a medium-sized arboreal gliding mammal which hangs upside down in trees, leaping into the air to glide in search of fruit to eat.
    • They are mainly arboreal, preferring to stay in the trees and larger shrubs.
    • The apes are almost totally arboreal; they live in the trees, travel through the trees, and eat fruit from the trees.
    • Funds permitting, there are also plans to set up some structures atop the trees as the chimps are very much adapted to an arboreal life.
    • Longrich said that his research ‘puts forward some of the strongest evidence yet that birds descended from arboreal parachuters and gliders, similar to modern flying squirrels.’
    • However, a lot of people feel that an arboreal origin makes a lot more sense, and not all paleontologists are so quick to rule out the idea that birds could come from arboreal dinosaurs.
