Types of animals

Types of Animals

The species of the Golden Lion Tamarin is Rosalie. The one of the most endangered mammals in the world. This Tamarin monkey is nearly extinct primarily because of its magnificent fur.

The common name for the Linn's Sloth is the Two-toed sloth. The Linn's sloth is a very gentle animal. It has a white/tan face and the fur is black/dark brown.

Red-shankedDoucLangur is part of the colobine monkey family, but surprisingly is more closely related to proboscis monkeys than langurs. Its overall size is 61-76 cm, with males slightly larger than females. Males weigh approximately 7 kg, and females 5 kg. Their tails are about 56-76 cm long. Its habitat is in the lowland to montane primary and secondary rainforest where it lives in the mid to upper levels of the canopy.

Types of plants

Types of plants

The tualang tree is a majestic emergent tree of the Southeast Asia rainforests best know for the disk shaped honeycombs which hang from its horizontal branches.

Curare grows as a large liana, or vine, found in the canopy of the South American rainforest. Curare’s are also called Grieswurzel, Pareira Brava, Pareira, VigneSauvage.

Types of plants

Durian trees grows in lowland rainforests, scientists think it is one of the first plants to rely on animals to disperse its seed. It does this by bribing them with a nutritious and smelly food surrounding its seed.

Abiotic factors

Abiotic factors

The tropical rain forest is a forest of tall. Rainforests now cover less than 6% of Earth's land surface. Scientists estimate that more than half of all the world's plant and animal species live in tropical rain forests. In an average year in a tropical rain forest, the climate is very humid because of all the rainfall. The average temperatures is occasionally above 18 degrees Celsius

Deforestation

Deforestation

Deforestation is the removal of a forest which is affecting a lot of animals because most of them like birds and monkeys live in the trees so by deforestation you are removing there homes.
