Rainforests are areas of dense forest found in parts of the world where there is heavy rainfall. This habitat is home to more animals and plants than any other. This book explores rainforests of the world in locations including South America, Africa, eastern Madagascar, southern Asia and New Zealand, and takes a look at the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates that live there. From tigers, jaguars and monkeys to macaws, chameleons, snakes and butterflies, this is an exciting and colourful exploration of rainforest life, with colour photos, artwork and maps.
