The Rainforest Is A Wilderness
Indigenous tribe - Pygmy Tribe
One of the tribes that live in the Congo is the Pygmy tribe. It is one of the largest tribes and the most well known. They called themselves the Pygmies because of their hight. The tallest of their tribe is 1.5m. They are found in the northern part of the Congo called the Ituri forest. Being small and living in the rainforest is an advantage as they are able to move quicker and more effectively than taller people. Smaller bodies are also dissipate body heat faster. They travel in groups that are 15-70 people. It depends largely on the outside factors e.g. hunting and trading. All of the groups tend to be very nomadic.
