Below is a map of the major rainforests over the world. Strata The rainforest contains of four different layers (or strata) crawling with mammals and insects. The first layer is called the EMERGENT LAYER. This layer contains the tallest trees that are over 200 feet tall and the animals found here are eagles, monkeys, bats and butterflies.
The herbivores would multiply much too quickly to keep track of and eat all of the vegetation down all the way to the roots. With the vegetation gone the herbivores would die due to the food source being gone and then the animals that use the vegetation as shelter would die off because their homes are gone. The soil as result of the vegetation being gone would start the process of soil erosion and the soil would be bad because the nutrient rich topsoil would blow off so it would be unusable land. This would ruin all of that area for wildlife for the foreseeable future. All of the animals in the habitat would die because there is nothing of anything to eat anymore.
Tropical Rainforest The Tropical Rainforest is a hot and humid area. Here, there are many exotic species including plants and animals. Because rain falls there all year long, the forest contains dense canopies of vegetation. Climate and Location: The climate is very humid because of the amount of rainfall received a year, while still having hot temperatures.
Tropical forests refer to a very wet place which experiences heavy rainfall either throughout the year or seasonally. These forests are usually located near the equator where there is an abundance of sunlight and warmth. The temperatures here are usually uniformly high registering between 20 to 35°C. As a result of the high rainfall and sunlight, tropical forests are evergreen all year round (WWF, 2016).
There are two types of tarantulas. First Terrestrial, which spend most of their time on the ground or in burrows. These tarantulas will lay web on the ground both in and around its burrow. The spider will then be able to detect if there is something outside their burrow via the vibrations on the web. The other type is Arboreal which means tree dwelling.
Costa Rica Running as fast as I can branches and vines cutting me up, my heart pounding as I jump over a old log, as I hear my hunter in the distance getting closer with every breath. These areas are known as no man’s land, they are very grueling to the environment. The air feels thick and humid, with a dash of sweet nectar from the trees. Costa Rica as huge rainforest that has small areas that have never been mapped or documented. We know very few animals and plants but know the weather and its patterns.
Living and native to the forests of African, its home to hundreds of epidemic animal species, and supposedly no where else in the world. There are many species of the colobus monkeys all with their own appearance. There are three types of colobus the Black and white (genus Colobus), Red Colobus (genus Pillocolobus), and the Oliver colobus (genus Procolobus). The colobus monkey are consider part of the clarification of mammals, as most of the species an earth started.
Firstly, wild life is facing extinction because of rampant deforestation. Numerous habitats are destroyed daily causing wildlife to be orphaned or killed. In states like Tawau, Sandakan and Lahad Datu, the forest is cleared to make way for oil palm cultivation. I agree that the economic reserves of the country need to be doubled, but, not by abusing the land indiscriminately. By taking away their home, the rights of these animals are violated.
The bark of the Great Tulip is rough, brown, and shows signs of weathering and ignorant tourists, who carve their name in these huge trees. During the spring, the leaves are a bright green, like a freshly polished emerald. The Great Smoky Mountains
The Gibbon has very long arms so it can climb trees effortlessly and run up to 35 miles an hour. The way the Gibbon swings is called “Brachiation” which saves energy. It also has a small fur coat all around its body except its face. Its fur comes in a few different colors like white, black, and brown. Habitat
The stripes on their hind quarters are most likely the first thing to catch your eye. Like giraffes, okapis have long necks that help them to reach leaves higher up in the trees, as well as providing them with a defense mechanism for both themselves, and their territory (“Okapi”-A-Z Animals). The okapi’s neck, shoulders, barrel, and back, range from sepia and pitch black to a rich wine-colored red. Their cheeks and jaws are a soft yellow-white color, their neck is dark black, and their forehead is a deep red chestnut. Their large ears are fringed with jet black fur.
