    3. 3. B e n g a l B a m b o o is found in the Southeast Asian rainforestand it likes weather such as 40 Fahrenheit and100 Fahrenheit. It is anywhere between 40 feet and 80 feet in height. Plus 3 inches in diameter in maturity. Its life span is 25 to 40 years. t tries to grow really fast so it gets the most rain and sunlight. When it rains heavily and it starts to flood it sucks up the water. . C r y ta n t h u s b r o m e l a i d s are also called earth stars. They can’t grow anymore than 24 leaves.

    6. 6. The emergent layer is made up of the tallest trees in the whole rainforests. It is the one who gets the most sun, heat and rain out of the others. Animals such as eagles, monkeys, butterflies, insects and snakes are manly found around there. It's height is usually about 60metres above the ground floor. The Canopy layer is the second highest trees in the rainforests. The animals that you can see are monkeys, sloths, tree-frogs , ants, beetles, parrots, hummingbirds and snakes. It is made up of the vines and tree branches which join together. The trees there became an umbrella which filters out the light. The Understorey is the second smallest layer and that's why it doesn't get much sunlight. The understorey is full of natural life and many animals are seen and heard there some of them are snakes, frogs, parakeets, leopards, jaguars and a massive amount of insects in the world live there. The forest floor is a tangle of roots with lots of moss. A leaf that might take one year to decompose would take just 6 weeks on the forest floor. The insects you most likely would find there consists of termites, cockroaches, beetles, centipedes, millipedes, scorpions and earthworm. Some animals can be found such as bandicoots, scrub fowls and cassowaries roving around the forest floors. X

    9. 9. 5 What will happen? <ul><li>If they where no trees left in the world no life will be seen or heard. 40% was the insect life in rainforests and would be destroyed. All the fresh air would be gone as well. Imagine that having no fresh air and all because of those nasty loggers. </li></ul><ul><li>Most animals would not be able to survive in a place without trees because some animals like possums made homes there and would make to find homes in small forest areas. Also because there will be a lack of food, water and air. No birds and the ecosystem will be destroyed. </li></ul><ul><li>Trees carry out an important type of function which removes all the carbon dioxide in the air. Us humans breath out co2 and if there where no trees then there would be less plants to trap the co2 in their growth and we would need to found plants which do. Global warming could be a really worse and bad thing that could happen. </li></ul>5
    10. 10. <ul><li>Rainforests animals are mainly brightly coloured have a certain colour's like the Day Gecko , they are green in colour so they can blend in with the leaves. Poisonous animals always shine bright colour’s and patterns as a way of defense. </li></ul><ul><li>Rainforests plants are also brightly coloured so coloured so they can attract birds, insects and bats to feed. Also plants are brightly coloured in the rainforests because they need light to grow and to make food. If they get this light they can grow up to 60 meters. </li></ul>7 Why are Rainforests plants and animals so brightly coloured?
