World Earth Month

April was Earth Month and to mark it, CNI's blogger, Evan decided to research about our fascinating rain forests. The Amazon rainforest is often referred to as the 'lungs of our planet' and is also an important habitat for lots of animals on our planet. Read the information he found below:



RAIN FORESTS

1.The Amazon Is the world's largest tropical rain forest Covering over 5.5 Million square kilograms, It's so big that the UK and Ireland would fit into it 17 times.

2.More than half of the species on earth are from the rain forests. Most of them Include Sumatran Orangutan, Squirrel monkey, Jaguars and Sloths and Harpy Eagles.


3.There Is a moth that will always follow a sloth around and It's called the Sloth Moth. Sloth Moths are thought to get nutrients from the Secretions of the Sloth's skin and the algae growing from their fur.


ONE SLOTH WAS DISCOVERED WITH 1,000 MOTHS IN ITS FUR.


4. So there are lots of cute harmless animals Such as Tapirs, Capybara and Spider Monkeys. But there's also pretty dangerous animals in the Amazon Rainforest Like Crocodiles, Jaguars, Tarantulas, Snakes and Tigers.


THANK YOU FOR READING HOPE YOU ENJOYED THESE FACTS


Evan
