Temperate forest

Lichen, mosses, ferns, and wildflowers are some of the plants that live on the forest floors. Maple, oak, birch, magnolia, sweet gum, and beech trees are all types of trees in temperate forests.

Mammals, reptiles, birds, and many different species of insects live in temperate forests. The most common mammals are deer, squirrels, and wild boar. An example of an omnivore is a raccoon, which eats plants or meat like fish. A deer is a herbivore because it eats plants like grass. A type of carnivore is a wolf, which eats animals like deer, moose, and bison.
