That must remain in the rain forest (Mission Biomes). In only a month, the rainforest receives four inches of rain!!! (Mission Biomes). The layers of the rain forest are emergent, canopy, understory, and forest floor (Blue Planet Biomes). A few specific adaptations that living things in the rainforest have that living things have to help them survive are: the Toco Toucan's feather-like tongue helps it move food along its bill (Blue Planet Biomes). The harpy eagle has a seven-foot wing span for flying fast in the forest (Blue Planet Biomes). The Jambo Fruit Dove is nine inches tall, but only weighs 1.5 ounces (Blue Planet Biomes). Something that makes the rain forest unique is that rain forests now cover 6 percent less of our world (Blue Planet Biomes). The Durian is thought to be one of Southeast Asia's most ancient, primitive trees (Blue Planet Biomes).
