The rarest animals

These beings are in some way the celebrities in the world of animals - they are listed as endangered and every individual counts. Portal calls them "the rarest of the rare." In zoos, the animals we will never see, and difficult to photograph them - walking with a camera on the habitats of these lovely creatures are allowed only to representatives of reputable scientific publications, such as National Geographic, and then only infrequently. However, they are hunted not only naturalists. I think it is no secret that there is a fashion for collecting rare and exotic animals. Moneybags pay a fortune so-called "bounty hunters" who deliver them exotic pets. In captivity, these animals if it will live, but their lives will be very bleak. Therefore, I support the US congressmen, who recently proposed to introduce a law to toughen penalties for the capture rare animals ...
