Melissa Kronser & Callie Dorsey

Plants: Mosses, Orchids, Deciduous and Evergreen Trees.

Location: Africa, Asia, Australia, South and Central America, specifically found in Mexico and India

Animals: Tigers, Mountain Lions, Bobcats, Ocelots, Coyotes, Merriam's Kangroo Rats.

Some animals are nocturnal so that they can get their food during the night when it is cooler. Some animals also have a coat that allows them to blend in to the surroundings during the dry season.

In general, trees tend to drop their leaves to conserve water. Plants will grow in places that allow them to get more sunlight and water (such as in the air like an orchid)
