Thus, seasonally flooded evergreen forests were positively selected for hunting primates; this class also recorded the highest bird catches ("pajui", black curassow
, Crax alector; "pava", blue-throated biping-guan, Pipile cumanensis and spix's guan, Penelope jacquacu; family Cracidae), but this prevalence was not statistically significant.
The Linhares-Sooretama block shelter several other threatened species both nationally and worldwide, such as the giant armadillo (Priodontes maximus Kerr, 1792), the tapir (Tapirus terrestris Linnaeus, 1758), the white-lipped peccary (Tayassu pecari Link, 1795), the thin-spined porcupine (Chaetomys subspinosus Olfers, 1818) and the red-billed curassow
(Crax blumenbachii Spix, 1825), among several others.
Formerly, the Great Curassow
was a common bird in the region, but in the last decades it has been extirpated from much of its former range due to constant illicit hunting and forest destruction (Schaldach & Escalante-Pliego 1997, Howell & Webb 1995) leaving the remnant populations confined to island forest patches on steepest slopes (Schaldach & Escalante-Pliego 1997).
