Gorillas, parrots, hissing cockroaches, and iguanas make their homes in rain forests, as do thousands of other kinds of animals, birds, insects, and reptiles. There are also many trees and plants in each of the two types of rain forests (tropical and temperate). Filled with important facts, this book also uses beautiful, labeled illustrations to show life in rain forests from all over the world, such as Brazil, Costa Rica, and the Pacific Northwest of North America.Rain forests are a hot topic in the news, as the debate over global warming receives more and more coverage. The illustrations are abundant and informative, showing over 100 different life forms in rain forests, from the draco lizard to the round-eared bat to the cocoa tree.
