Tropical rainforests are found around the equator where the climate is very wet and humid. Rainfall can be anywhere from 80 to 400 inches a year with no dry season. The average temperature is between 70 and 85 degrees with an average humidity between 77% and 88%.

Did you know that more than 2/3 of the world's plant species can be found in tropical rain forests? Some of these plants include the Raffle's Pitcher Plant, Liverworts and the Bat-Wing Fern.

The tropical rainforest is also home to hundreds of thousands of animal species. Some of these species include the tarantula, the toucan, the anaconda, the birdwing butterfly, the spider monkey, and the poisonous dart frog.
