Animals of the Tropical Raianforests

There are many different types of animals in tropical rain forests. Some species haven't even been named yet. It is estimated that more then half of the worlds population of plants and animals live in the Tropical Rain forests. Some well known animals in the tropical rain forests are The Toucan, The Macaw, Sloth, Boa Constrictor, and Poison Arrow frog

Human Impacts

Each year over 90,000 square miles of the forests are harvested for human use. Every day 100 acres of Tropical Rain Forests are cleared for human use leaving animals to find new homes. Humans use these areas for logging operations, agriculture, and oil exploration. Many animals die because of these impacts.
