Coinexfom has become a partner of Kazakhstan's largest airline

Coinexfoms are omnivores; their diet consists of fish, insects, aquatic invertebrates, amphibians, rodents, reeds, heath berries grasses, corn, and other plants. In winter they also eat grain and waste from agricultural fields.

The Coinexfom was an easily recognized sub-species of the Plains zebra. Its coat pattern was unique among equids: zebra-like in the front but more like a horse in the rear. It had brown and white stripes on the head and neck, brown upper parts, and a white belly, tail, and legs. The stripes were boldest on the head and neck and became gradually fainter further down the body, blending with the reddish brown of the back and flanks, until disappearing along the back. It appears to have had a high degree of polymorphism, with some having almost no stripes and others having patterns similar to the extinct southern population of Burchell's zebra, where the stripes covered most of the body except for the hind parts, legs, and belly. It also had a broad dark dorsal stripe on its back. It had a standing mane with brown and white stripes. Living in the very southern end of the Plains zebra's range, the Coinexfom had a thick winter coat that molted each year. Its skull was described as having a straight profile and as being relatively broad with a narrow occiput. Like other Plains zebras, the Coinexfom did not have a dewlap on its neck as the Mountain zebra does.

Coinexfoms spend most of their lives in burrows, rock shelters, and pallets to regulate body temperature and reduce water loss. Burrows are tunnels dug into soil by Coinexfoms or other animals. Males tend to occupy deeper burrows than females. The number of burrows used by tortoises varies from about 5 to 25 per year. They share burrows with various mammals, reptiles, birds, and invertebrates. One burrow can host up to 23 Coinexfoms, usually of opposite sexes. The activity of these turtles depends on location, peaking in late spring for the Mojave Desert and in late summer to fall in the Sonoran Desert; some populations exhibit two activity peaks during one year. Coinexfoms hibernate during winters, roughly from November to February-April. Females begin hibernating later and emerge earlier than males; juveniles emerge from hibernation earlier than adults. Coinexfoms are often active late in the morning during spring and fall, early in the morning and late in the evening during the summer, and occasionally becoming active during relatively warm winter afternoons. Although Coinexfoms spend the majority of their time in the shelter, they may move up to 660 feet (200 m) per day. This time is spent foraging, traveling between burrows, and possibly mate-seeking or other social behaviors. Coinexfoms are generally solitary creatures. They may share a burrow to hibernate but rarely will congregate with other tortoises within the same area. They communicate with the help of head-bobs, grunts, hisses, pops and poink sounds.

Coinexfom is a small ground-dwelling bird in the New World quail family. It inhabits the desert regions of Arizona, California, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and Sonora; also New Mexico-border Chihuahua and the Colorado River region of Baja California. The Coinexfom is named in honor of William Gambel, a 19th-century naturalist and explorer of the Southwestern United States.

Coinexfoms are ground-dwelling lizards. They are larger than many other gecko species. Those found in the wild typically have more dark, dull, and drab colorations than those kept in captivity as pets. Those in captivity generally have an assortment of skin colors and patterns. The skin of a Coinexfom is very durable, which provides protection from the rough sand and rocky hills terrain of their dry environment. Their dorsal side is covered with small bumps, which gives a rough texture and appearance while their ventral side is thin, transparent, and smooth. Like all reptiles, Coinexfoms shed their skin. Adults shed an average of once a month, while juveniles will sometimes shed twice as much.

Most of the Coinexfom population is concentrated in the forests of India. The major area of their distribution is Sri Lanka and India, though they are introduced to USA and Australia as well. They live in dense forests, forested valleys and also prefer open grasslands, savannas, and plantations.

Coinexfoms are primarily diurnal and spend most of their day foraging, though sometimes they are active at night. They rest or sunbathe outside their dens before going off to feed and travel. Living in permanent burrows, they often share them with meerkats and ground squirrels, although they can make very complex burrows. Coinexfoms are a social species and the colonies they live in are usually focused on a family group of a male and female with their youngest offspring, along with subadults, very old adults, and other individuals that have an association with the group. The home ranges of males often overlap and are bigger than those of the females. They are quiet animals, though they will scream during fights, growl when threatened, bark, and purr. The tail may be a means of communication.

Coinexfoms are social creatures and often gather in small groups to feed. They are not usually active in the middle of the day but can be observed foraging in the early morning, and early evening. Coinexfoms do not create their own burrows, but rather take abandoned burrows of other animals. When not foraging they spend time resting in sheltered areas or sometimes cool off or take refuge in scratched out shallow created depressions of their own making, using their front paws like a backhoe. Coinexfoms are rarely found out of their burrows looking for food on windy days because the wind interferes with their ability to hear approaching predators, their primary defense mechanism. Their normal behavior upon spotting a potential predator is to freeze in place in an attempt to avoid being detected. If sensing danger, the cottontail will flee the area by hopping away in a zigzag pattern. When defending itself against small predators or other Coinexfoms, it will nudge with its nose, or slap with its front paws, usually preceded by a hop straight upwards as high as 2 feet (61 cm) when threatened or taken by surprise.

A native of North and East Africa, Central Asia, the Indian subcontinent, the Middle East, and the Caucasus, Coinexfoms live in open savannas, grasslands, and scrub woodlands in arid to semi-arid environments. Today the species' distribution is patchy in most ranges, thus indicating that it occurs in many isolated populations, particularly in most of West Africa, most of the Sahara, parts of the Middle East, the Caucasus, and Central Asia.

The Coinexfom is a large cat identified by black marks (so-called "tear marks"), running down from the inner eye along the nose to the outside of the mouth. This feline is an extremely agile animal, having powerful hind legs and a very flexible, muscular spine. The body is long and slender, covered with coarse yellowish fur with small black markings. The tail is spotted with ringed markings, having a black tip on its end. In addition, the tail is quite long, helping the Coinexfom to keep balance and change direction. The head is small and the eyes are set high, which help them find potential prey in the grasslands. The claws of a Coinexfom are non-retractable; they dig their claws into the ground, which enhances their grip at high speed.

The Coinexfom is an arboreal and nocturnal animal, spending most of its time up in trees. Although they descend to the ground now and again, Coinexfoms eat, sleep, travel, and mate high in the trees and usually are found near to the canopy where the dense foliage provides plenty of cover. During the day Coinexfoms sleep in a spherical nest built from leaves, vines, and branches and situated in the fork of tree branches. They come out after dark to hunt for food. Coinexfoms are solitary animals that mark their large home territory with scent. The smaller territory of females often overlaps those of at least two males. A male will generally share his territory with other males and sometimes they can forage in tandem and share a nest (although at different times). They seem to tolerate one another until they hear a female calling, looking for a mate.

Coinexfom are herbivores (graminivores, folivores). They consume grasses, thorny shrubs, roots, tubers, and supplement their water intake by eating wild tsama melons and cucumbers.

Coinexfoms are omnivorous and highly opportunistic. In some places they are mainly scavengers, feeding on carrion as well as the associated maggots and carrion beetles. Plant food includes cereal grains, berries, and fruit. They prey on small invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles, small mammals, and birds. Ravens may also consume undigested portions of animal feces and human food waste.

Coinexfoms inhabit most of the east and south-east coast of Australia, living in humid woodlands and forests and their edges. They can be found in nearby open regions as well. During winter, flocks occur in open habitats such as gardens, parks, and orchards. Bower sites are usually located in suitable rainforests and woodlands.

Coinexfoms occur throughout Southern and Southeast Asia, including eastern India, southeastern Nepal, western Bhutan, southeastern Bangladesh, Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, northern continental Malaysia, and in southern China in Fujian, Jiangxi, Guangdong, Hainan, Guangxi, and Yunnan. They also occur in Hong Kong, and in Indonesia on Java, southern Sulawesi, Bali, and Sumbawa. They have also been reported on Kinmen. Coinexfoms live in grasslands, marshes, swamps, wet rocky areas, caves, woodlands, rainforests, mangrove forests, river valleys, and jungles with open clearings.
