The total amount of calories from fat should make up around 30% of your diet. Each gram of fat contains 9kcals. So for example, If you were consuming 1500kcals a day then 30% percent of those calories should be fat. Calculations: 1500kcals / 100 X 30 = 450kcals 450kcals / 9 = 50 grams So… a person consuming 1500kcals a day should consume around 50 grams of fat per day. This does not mean to say all these calories should be saturated fats (bad fats). These calories should be consume with unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats (good fats) as well. For an average person on a 2000 calorie diet, 20g should be the minimum intake of overall fats, with a maximum of 60g. No one should consume over 20g of saturated fats, and trans fats should be avoided completely. (MORE)

No, squirrel monkey's do not hibernate. They do not live in anareas that has winter conditions such as rain forests.
Squirrels generally do not eat meat at all. Squirrels generally consume nuts and berries for their diet. However, if faced with no food and only a squirrel, they might attack and eat each other. The odds of a squirrel eating another squirrel would be very rare, if at all.
they eat baby birds , bird eggs ,fruit from branches , insects , bananas,frogs,and puddels but mostly fruits it wont eat much meat. its more of a vegetarian. these monkeys are soooo cute!!! :P

The average adult should have a minimum of 2000mg-3000mg of potassium per day. This can be achieved through the natural consumption of certain kinds of foods, particularly fruits and vegetables. There are circumstances where potassium is readily lost and needs to be replenished in excess of the mini…mum daily amount listed above. The number is smaller for children and infants. Anyone with concerns of potassium deficiency, due to food allergies or special dietary requirements, where natural sources for potassium are precluded; should consult a doctor about the exact dosage they need to supplement each day. Potassium is essential for muscle health, particularly the heart. A deficiency, among other things, can cause muscle cramping and in extreme cases, can cause death. People on "low carb diets" will find they need to take special care to get the proper amount of potassium each day, as potassium is used in the ketosis process to diffuse byproduct chemicals left in the bloodstream; therefore additional potassium is needed regularly to replenish the body's potassium stores. Potassium is diffused by the kidneys, through sweat, urine or other bodily excretions. In this manner, excess potassium is removed from the body through urination and sweating. Barring kidney trouble, it is difficult to actually overdose on potassium, but not impossible. People should consume more potassium after intense sweating, if your diet is high in salt or in case of abnormal or extraordinary bodily excretions (such as vomiting or diarrhea) as these will result in a loss of potassium in the excreted bodily fluids. Supplemental potassium can also be needed if you are on certain kinds of heart medicine. Muscle cramps are typically a sign of one being low in potassium. (MORE)
Depends on what you feed them, if they get into your medicine cabinet.... Not long at all
Predators of a squirrel monkey are, wild cats, snakes and birds of prey. To warn other members of the troop, squirrel monkeys use vocal calls.
Koalas only eat approximately 50 of the 600 different eucalyptus species in Australia. Each koala eats around 400 to 600 grams of eucalyptus leaves each day. Eucalyptus leaves contain approximately 50% water so koalas generally do not need an additional water source. The word "koala" is aboriginal f…or "doesn't drink", although they have been known to drink water. answer found at: http://www.querycat.com/faq/6798e92889702bc665851212bb3858b2 According to the Australian Koala Foundation, an adult koala eats between 500 grams and one kilogram of eucalyptus leaves daily. Typically, a koala will eat between 300 and 600 grams of eucalyptusleaves each day, but they do not eat that in one sitting. They aregrazers, and will eat their daily intake in varying amounts overseveral feeding periods spread over the day, each lasting anyamount of time up to an hour. (MORE)

Answer 1:Flax seed is an excellent source of soluble fiber, the fiber that helps reduce cholesterol. The AHA recommends 25-30 grams of fiber daily. 2/3 cup of flax seed contains around 28 grams of fiber. It also has lots of other really good components such as vitamins, minerals and unsaturated fatt…y acids. Answer 2:I lowered my cholesterol significantly and lost 50 lbs by becoming vegetarian. Then, I don't have to deal with flaxseed or meds or anything out of my ordinary routine. The most I have to do is ask, "is there meat in that?" AND I eat eggs. Just no more meat, chicken, beef, pork, fish and seafood. I really urge you to consider a more vegetarian lifestyle, because it really works. Answer 3:I have been taking flax seed daily for years. I found this information on the Mayo Clinic site and will paste the information here for you to read. You may want to check out their site yourself and form your own opinion. I take about a full tablespoon daily, sprinkled on my cereal. gere Here is what they say: Which is better for me, whole or ground flaxseed? Most nutrition experts recommend ground flaxseed because your body is better able to digest it. Whole flaxseed may pass through your intestine undigested, which means you won't get the health benefits of flaxseed. Flaxseed is high in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and phytochemicals called lignans. Flaxseed can help reduce total blood cholesterol and LDL ("bad") cholesterol levels - and, as a result, may help reduce the risk of heart disease. Flaxseed oil also contains omega-3 fatty acids, but it doesn't have the beneficial fiber that the seeds have. You can purchase raw flaxseed in bulk - whole or ground - at many grocery stores and health food stores. Whole seeds can be ground in a coffee grinder and then stored in an airtight container for several months. Although the Institute of Medicine has not set a recommended daily intake for omega-3 fatty acids, it has established adequate intake amounts of between 1.1 and 1.6 grams per day for adults. One tablespoon of ground flaxseed provides 1.6 grams of omega-3 fatty acids. Tips for including flaxseed in your diet: Add a tablespoon of ground flaxseed to your hot or cold breakfast cereal. Add a teaspoon of ground flaxseed to mayonnaise or mustard when making a sandwich. Mix a tablespoon of ground flaxseed into an 8-ounce container of yogurt. Bake ground flaxseed into cookies, muffins, breads and other baked goods. You can also use flaxseed in place of eggs in muffins, pancakes and cookies. To substitute flaxseed for one large egg in a recipe, use 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed plus 3 tablespoons water. Keep in mind that it will somewhat alter the texture of the finished product, making it slightly "gummy." (MORE)

About 1.5% to 2% of their body weight in grass or grass hay. Then they may eat a couple more pounds of grain if they need it to balance their work load.
If a horse has lots of green pasture very much hay is not necessary. If they do not then one beet of hay once a day is plenty.
Squirrel monkey bites are very rare. But if they do happen to accidently bite you then they will not even really hurt. A male is worse than a female and for males it is only like a paper cut. But they dont even really hurt.
No. They actually don't carry any diseases. That is a myth. It has been tested and proven that teens that get a monkey (squirrel monkey or spider monkey in paticular) make more money and get better jobs and improve in school. The earlier in life they get their own the better the improvement. Not my …words but my neighbor is a scientist and studies monkeys and he has 3 or 4 and has convinced me to get a couple of my own. I make like 25,000 dollars a year from selling the babies! The babies are a little more work so be careful when breeding. (MORE)

You should consume at least 0.75g of protein per kg body weight. After calculating the amounts of calories you get form the recommended intake of protein you subtract that from your daily caloric need. The number you now have should be divided by 9 and you have the amount of fat (in grams) that yo…u should eat to reach your caloric need. Because carbohydrates are non-essential I did not include them. The lowest amount of fat you should consume is 1g per kg body weight. So if you want to consume carbohydrates you could easily add them into the equation. (MORE)
