The tropical rainforests are usually found near or next to the equator. They are common in most continents, such as Asia, Africa, South America, and Central America. They are home to many more animals then all other biomes have combined. Tropical rainforests are also home to two thirds of basically every plant or animal on the planet. The tropical rainforest is divided in to 5 seperate areas and include different organisms in each of the areas. There really are not a lot of people in the tropical rainforest but it doesn't matter because there are so many animals, that it makes the economy.(wikipedia)

The tropical rain forest is a very rainy environment It rains about 1500 to 2500 mm per year. Almost every day there is rain and it is about 30 degrees Celsius every day. During the night the temperature gets colder. With all of the rainfall and cold climate, it results in a equatorial climate

Tropical rainforests recieve about 12 hours of sunlight per day but only 2 percent of it reaches the ground floor. The understory and the canopy layers of the rainforest are the things that are blocking the sunlight from the organisms living in the tropical rainforest, making it very shady.

In the Tropical Rainforest, the Jaguar is the main predator. It is on the top of the food chain and is one of the most feared animals in the rainforest. It follows its own law of the jungle and even the inhabitants of people respect the way the jaguar roams around the rainforest, as he searches for his prey and is in charge of the canopy.
