Shocktober Week 3 - The Sacrifice!

An evil demon is trying to silence SingSnap by stealing voices one song at a time. It is our goal to scale to the deepest depths and make sure that does not happen. We are about to embark on the journey of a life time! We have trekked through the woods and battled evil spirits. The next step of our journey is not for the weak at heart and will require you to dig deep and wear your bravery as a shield as we prepare for - The Sacrifice!

Week Three Token!

Each week you are participating to collect a token for a magical potion that will defeat the evil demon. The third ingredient token you are after is a skull of a sacrificial beast!

Challenge Details:

Rockin Challenge Part A:You must sing any ROCK song with an animal in the title OR the artist name on October 18th.

Rockin Challenge Part B: In your song comment section tell us what animal you feel represents the Rock Genre and why.

Shockin Challenge Part A: You must sing any song from the feature Page on October 18 th.

Shockin Challenge Part B:In your song comment section tell us what animal you feel represents EVIL and why!

I took the shockin challenge.
My song is from the feature page & is one I thought fit in well with this week's challenge.
For Part B of the Shockin challenge... "What animal do I feel represents evil?" None really... because I love all animals! I'd say a snake, but that's not considered an animal.... So I guess if I have to choose one... I will go with the Silver-back Gorilla. But they are complex & often misunderstood primates. They really aren't monsters. They are social beings, full of curiosity & affection. They are wise & powerful, & can be sweet & gentle... But they can also be fierce & ferocious mighty beasts. Sadly, these primates are hunted. They are decapitated & their hands are cut off & made into ash trays! Therefore, they are abused & their body parts are sacrificed & sold for profit! This sickens me!! They, like so many primates.... are now at risk of becoming extinct. I hate that! So, I decided to take the Rocking side challenge this week as well.

The rocking side challenge ...
"What animal do you feel represents the Rock Genre and why?"
For this side challenge I choose the Gibbon. Gibbons rock on many levels!
They sing & are extremely vocal... see info & video below.
They also like to swing & jump around a lot... Just like rock stars! lol I love Gibbons! And...

October 24 marks “International Gibbon Day,”
A day to celebrate Gibbons and raise awareness about the threats faced by these endangered primates.. Which is why I chose to make this PSA/Music Awareness Video.

In honor of International Gibbon Day, here are five fun facts about gibbons and one fact that’s not fun at all.

Fact # 1 – Gibbons are “lesser apes”

Gibbons are not monkeys. They are part of the ape family and are classified as lesser apes because they are smaller than the great apes. The great apes are bonobos, chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans.

Fact #2 – Gibbons mostly move by swinging

Gibbons are famous for the swift and graceful way they swing through the trees by their long arms. This method of locomotion is called brachiation. This way of moving makes gibbons the fastest ape. They can swing from branch to branch for distances up to 15 m (50 ft) & travel at a speed of up to 34 miles per hour which is around the same speed as a galloping racehorse. They can also make leaps up to 8 m (26 ft), and walk bipedal with their arms raised for balance. They are the fastest and most agile of all tree-dwelling, nonflying mammals

Fact #3 – Gibbons pair up

Unlike most primates, gibbons frequently form long-term pair bonds and sometimes mate for life.

Fact #4 – Gibbons communicate by singing

Like all primates, gibbons are social animals. They are strongly territorial and defend their boundaries with vigorous visual and vocal displays. In most species, males and some females sing solos to attract mates, as well as advertise their territories. The song can be used to identify not only which species of gibbon is singing, but also the area from which it comes. The vocal element, which can often be heard for distances up to 1 km (0.6 mi), may also consist of a duet between a mated pair, with their young sometimes joining in.

Some species such as the siamang have an enlarged throat sac, which inflates and serves as a resonating chamber when the animals call. This structure can become quite large in some species, sometimes equaling the size of the animal's head. Their voices are much more powerful than that of any human singer, although they are at best half a man's height. Gibbon vocalizations are often referred to as song because of the way they modulate their pitch. Gibbons start each day by singing at sunrise.

Wait for it.... Because OMGosh these two really RAWK OUT... LMBO!

Gibbon skulls and teeth resemble those of the great apes, and their noses are similar to those of all catarrhine primates.

Fact #5 – There are 20 known species of gibbon

There are twenty species of gibbon including the Skywalker Hoolock gibbon which was discovered in 2017 in Myanmar and named for Luke Skywalker from Star Wars.

The shocking fact about gibbons is that all 20 species are threatened by extinction.
Most species are either endangered or critically endangered. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) says the greatest threats to their survival are palm oil production, logging, degradation or loss of their forest habitats, and the illegal trade in wildlife.

On the island of Phuket in Thailand, a volunteer-based Gibbon Rehabilitation Center rescues gibbons that were kept in captivity, and are being released back into the wild. The Kalaweit Project also has gibbon rehabilitation centers in Borneo and Sumatra.

The IUCN Species Survival Commission Primate Specialist Group announced 2015 to be the Year of the Gibbon and initiated events to be held around the world in zoos to promote awareness of the status of gibbons

Week 3 ... The Sacrifice
This recording here...
On a Side note ... I was only going to use one video screen...
but I was torn between the two primates in the video.
I love the lil black gibbon's in the last two screens swinging all over the place...
But I thought the orangutan in the second video...was just too comically cute...
I love how he rocks out there at the end, & butt butt's (lol) & kisses the camera.
I had another video I was going to use with a closer view of a family of gibbons ...
But for some reason that video wouldn't work with manycam tonight.
I Hope these cute, little, gentle... & comical, singing primates, put a smile on your face.
I love that they are singers! If they were human... they'd probably be Rock Stars!

As always...
Ty for listening. Your time & comments are valued & appreciated... As are YOU!

Happy Shocktober! See You in your songs.
