The Forest Floor The forest floor receives the least amount of sunlight, so not many things are not able to live there. Some of the animals that live on the forest floor are gorillas, jaguars, and millipedes. Click Tarzan to learn more about the forest floor!
The Forest Floor The forest floor is also covered with dead plants and vegetation. The animals that live there use the dead plants as food, along with other animals. Click Tarzan to move on!
The Herb Layer The herb layer does also not receive a lot of sunlight. Wildflowers, ferns, and grasses grow here. The vegetation is very thick in the herb layer. Some of the animals that inhabit this layer are turtles, mice, insects, and some birds. Click Tarzan to move on!
The Shrub Layer The shrub layer is the third layer of the rainforest. Some animals that inhabit this layer are snakes, sloths, monkeys, and insects. Some predators live in this layer of the rain forest. Also some birds spend some of their time in this layer to find food. Click Tarzan to move on!
The Understory The understory layer is the fourth layer of the rain forest. This layer has so many leaves and vines that many animals cannot get through. Some of the creatures that live here are butterflies, monkeys, and insects. The understory has the most number of insects out of all the layers. Click Tarzan to move on!
The Canopy The canopy is the fifth layer in the rain forest. The canopy is located 80-150 feet above the ground. This is where all of the sunlight is absorbed so it can’t reach the forest floor. Click on Tarzan to learn more about the canopy!
The Canopy There are a lot of flowers and fruits in this layer. The vines that Tarzan swings on grow here, and they are called Lianas. Many animals live in this layer; some of them are toucans, monkeys, and tree frogs. Click Tarzan to move on!
The Emergent Layer The emergent layer is the sixth layer, which is at the top of the rain forest. It is around 200 feet above the forest floor. The trees in this layer have to be able to handle strong winds. Some of them even have seeds that are able to be moved by the wind. Some animals that live in this layer are bats and eagles.
