Rain Forest

Rain forests belong to the tropical wet climate group, rainfall is often more than 100 inches a year. The temperature in a rain forest isn't usually higher than 93°F or drops below 68 °F.

The tropical rain forest can be found in three major geographical areas around the world.-Central America in the Amazon river basin.-Africa(West Africa) also eastern Madagascar.Indo-Malaysia - west coast of India, Assam, Southeast Asia, New Guinea and Queensland, Australia

The Bengal Bamboo can be found in the Southeast Asian rainforest. It grows fast and has short roots in order to get at the sunlight faster in life and absorb water when it first falls. It receives about 100 inches of rain each year. The Bengal Bamboo can grow anywhere between 40 ft and 80 ft in height. It can reduce soil erosion, and provides shelter to many animals.

African Forest ElephantThe forest elephants are smaller, darker and their lower jaw is longer than savanna elephants. They are adapted to living in dense forests, their tusks are straight since curved ones might get caught in the underbrush and vines of the forest, allowing them to move around more easily. Elephants in Africa are now more endangered than before because of logging and poaching
