9-19 Scientific name:
The scientific name for The Japanese Crane is Grus japonensis. Two Closely Related Species One closely related specie of The Red-crowned crane, is the Sandhill crane. The scientific name for this crane is the Grus canadensis. This crane is rated least concered in the Conservation status. The Sandhill cranes forhead is red, their cheeks are white and they have a long bill that's dark. While they're flying, their dark long legs trail behind them while their neck is straight. Also for this crane the male and female look the same. Another closely related specie is the Whooping Crane. The scientific name for it is called the Grus Americana. It's rated endangered in the Conservation status. This crane is pure white but on the top of its head it has a red crown. It also has a dark long pointed bill. For the ones that immature they're a pale brown. Just like the Sandhill crane, when the Whooping crane flys their necks are straight and their long legs trail back. Broad or Narrow Niche The Japanese Crane is a narrow niche because it's a type of bird. It can only live in warm weather. When it gets cold they would fly to another place that is warmer. Another reason that states it's a narrow niche is that it eats certain kinds of food such as small insects. Why it's endangered The reason why the Red-crowned Crane is endangered is because, in the early 20th century they were hunted for their stunning plumage. Another reason why they're endangered is because they're also losing their homes because building are getting put up. What would happen to other species: If the Red-crowned Crane was extinct it would affect the animals that eat them. The animals that eat them are large carnivores. If they got extinct the large carnivores would have one less animal for them to eat and hunt, making them not having much to eat and then they might die. When they die it could start a chain reaction and other animals that eat them wouldn't have food either. Living in the Zoo There are some Japanese Cranes that live in the zoo. They put them in a nice warm place for them making sure that they have food, water and that they're healthy. The difference between living in the Zoo and the wild is that they don't get enough space to be free. If they're kept in the Zoo they get to fly around but not as much if they lived in the wild were they belong. Another difference is that if they live in the wild they would hunt for their food while in the Zoo they would just give it to them. Also in the wild they would have to watch out for their predators while in the Zoo they don't have to worry about getting eaten, or having their babies in danger.
