All about animals


Tropical rainforests have a lot more animals than any other biomes. One of the reasons for this is because of the of the mostly sunny skies, remember it can go down to 68 degrees. Tropical rainforests also have a lot of water for all the animals. Lots of small animals like monkeys, birds, snakes, rodents, frogs, and lizards are common in the tropical rainforest. Many of these animals and some insects never step on the ground. The animals use trees and understory for shelter, hiding places, and food.
