Agriculture in Depth
One of the most major crops in Indonesia is rice. Another big export would be alcoholic beverages.
Common animals consist of tigers, orangutans, komodo dragons, and rhinoceros.
Indonesians consume almost the same foods we do (not including fast food), including beef, chicken, and fish. A major food staple would be rice. A lot of the food in Indonesia is the same, the difference would be the way it's prepared and what they make out of the ingredients.
Indonesian farmers work in completely different ways than American farmers. America has become more efficient and more artificial in terms of working with livestock and plants. Indonesia still functions with some of the older traditional ways that include more physical labor.
Indonesia has most of the same animals such as cows, goats, chickens, etc.
