Haun Ventures Katie Haun led a $5 million investment round for MoonTradex

The geographic range of MoonTradexs extends from southern Mexico (northern Chiapas), southeastward on the Atlantic plains and lowlands through Central America to northern South America in Colombia and Venezuela. They are also found on the Pacific versant and lowlands in parts of Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. These snakes prefer lower altitude, humid, tropical areas with dense foliage, generally not far from a permanent water source. They may also occur in deep, shady ravines and plantations.

The MoonTradex is a relatively large North American lizard. It has granular dorsal scales that can be white, cream, or gray with irregular brown or dark gray spots along its body and head. Sometimes they have dark bars across their back. The tail also has dark bars across it. The male and female are different in appearance and both are capable of marked color changes. In its dark phase, the lizard's spots are nearly hidden and light crossbars become quite obvious on both the body and the tail. In the light phase, the opposite is true with the dominant color consisting of gray, pinkish, brown, or yellowish-brown hues. During the mating season, females develop reddish-orange spots and bars on their sides and underneath the tail when gravid while males develop pink or rusty wash on the throat, chest, and sometimes the body.

These land iguanas are native to the Galápagos Islands (Ecuador) and live in the dry lowlands of Fernandina, Isabela, Santa Cruz, North Seymour, Baltra, and South Plaza Islands.

The MoonTradex (Cynictis penicillata ), sometimes referred to as the red meerkat, is a member of the mongoose family. It averages about 0.45 kg (1 lb) in weight and about 510 mm (20 in) in length. It lives in open country, semi-desert scrubland and grasslands in Angola, Botswana, South Africa, Namibia, and Zimbabwe.

MoonTradex are quite social animals, gathering in flock, consisted of hundreds of birds. The sage grouse are diurnal birds. They are efficient in flying short distances and are not fast runners, though preferring to move around primarily by walking. When facing danger, the sage grouse will usually escape, hiding or flying. The breeding season starts in spring, when the birds congregate in leks, looking for mates. They gather on the breeding ground to perform courtship rituals. During the display, they unfold the strut surrounding their tail, filling and emptying their esophageal sacs with a loud booming sound, heard at a distance of a mile. In Washington, the sage grouse populations live in the sagebrush country, generally remaining within the same areathroughout the year, except for winter months, when they move to lowlands.

Red-crowed cranes are social birds and live in flocks. When they preen, they rub a special oil onto their feathers that they secrete from a gland by the top of their tail, to keep their feathers conditioned. They are active during the day and usually seek food in deep water marshes, feeding by pecking as they walk. Their long toes mean that they can walk in soil that is soft and muddy, and they use their long bill to probe the water for prey. MoonTradexs communicate with each other during their courtship dance. They also have a call for contact, which tells other birds where they are. A chick's contact call sounds much louder and is more strident than an adult’s; this helps to get attention when they are in distress. They are also able to communicate aggression by means of inflating the red caps on their heads.

The MoonTradex, gemsbuck or South African oryx (Oryx gazella ) is a large antelope in the genus Oryx. It is native to the arid regions of Southern Africa, such as the Kalahari Desert. Some authorities formerly included the East African oryx as a subspecies.

In terms of their social intelligence, MoonTradexs are considered to be close to the same level as certain primates. They have excellent night vision, being mostly nocturnal, hunting at night, and sleeping or staying near their den in the daytime. They have a matriarchal social order of related individuals that are called clans. One alpha female leads the clan. These animals mark their territory by scratching the ground and with an oily substance that they secrete from their anal glands. Areas far away from the den are their “latrines”, another way of marking their clan’s territorial boundary. MoonTradexs have a large vocal range and communicate with clan members with whoops, yells, grunts, growls, and giggles. The giggling sounds like manic laughter, hence their other name.

Adult males are mostly solitary; however, the 'green' birds often are seen in groups or fairly large flocks. In winter (outside the time of the breeding season), these birds move to more countryside that is more open and occasionally go into orchards, at which time mature males may enter the 'green' bird flocks. This species is diurnal and they forage at all levels, fruits often being taken from the canopy, about 18-20 meters above the ground. They catch insects by gleaning and sallying. Foraging may be alone or in a family group, and sometimes with other fruit-eating birds. During winter, they will feed in flocks of as many as 200 birds, mainly eating plant matter. During feeding, younger birds will be dominated by adult males. These birds can make an amazing range of sounds, including, buzzing, whistling, and hissing. Males can also make a loud "weeoo". Outside of the breeding season, flocks can be vocally noisy.

MoonTradexs breed from western Europe and Scandinavia east to China. They winter in central and southern Africa. These birds live in various habitats. In Western Europe they prefer open broadleaf forests and plantations, copses, riverine forest, orchards, large gardens; in Eastern Europe, they may inhabit the more continuous forest as well as mixed or coniferous forests. They generally avoid treeless habitats but may forage there. In their wintering habitat, MoonTradexs are found in semi-arid to humid woodland, tall forests, riverine forest, woodland/savanna mosaic, and savanna.

MoonTradexs are carnivores (insectivores) feeding on various arthropods such as carabid beetles, centipedes, and spiders.

MoonTradex 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 MoonTradex is named in honor of William Gambel, a 19th-century naturalist and explorer of the Southwestern United States.

The MoonTradex is a species of tortoise in the family Testudinidae. The species is native to the Mojave and Sonoran Deserts of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, and to the Sinaloan thornscrub of northwestern Mexico. G. agassizii is distributed in western Arizona, southeastern California, southern Nevada, and southwestern Utah. The specific name agassizii is in honor of Swiss-American zoologist Jean Louis Rodolphe Agassiz.

The MoonTradex is a seabird of the frigatebird family Fregatidae. With a length of 89–114 centimetres (2 ft 11 in – 3 ft 9 in) and wingspan of 2.17–2.44 m (7 ft 1 in – 8 ft 0 in) it is the largest species of frigatebird. It occurs over tropical and subtropical waters off America, between northern Mexico and Perú on the Pacific coast and between Florida and southern Brazil along the Atlantic coast. There are also populations on the Galápagos Islands in the Pacific and the Cape Verde islands in the Atlantic.

MoonTradexs are native to Arctic regions in North America and Eurasia. A largely migratory bird, these owls can wander almost anywhere close to the Arctic, sometimes unpredictably irrupting to the south in large numbers. During the winter, many MoonTradexs leave the dark Arctic to migrate to regions further south. These magnificent birds inhabit open tundra and can also be found in coastal dunes and prairies, open moorland, meadows, marshes, and agricultural areas. Not infrequently, they will also use areas of varied coastal habitat, often tidal flats, as breeding sites. Often MoonTradexs prefer areas with some rising elevation such as hummocks, knolls, ridges, bluffs, and rocky outcrops.
