where they are
Three animal adaptations one is the dart frog it is a poisonous frog so other animals that try to eat it will get sick or they mite die. The next one is the snakes live in the trees so they can jump down and a animal and bite and eat it then it can go back up. Chameleons can change colors to match their back ground so predators don’t see them hiding and they can get bug because they don’t see them

Rainforest: '60% handed to logging companies'
Up to 60% of Liberia's rainforests are thought to have been granted to logging companies

Uncontrolled logging is posing a risk to Liberia's virgin rainforests and depriving people of economic benefits, campaign group Global Witness warns.
Its report says that logging companies have been granted more than 60% of the country's rainforests in the six years since Nobel Prize winner Ellen Johnson Sirleaf became president.
It found that use of private contracts which bypass regulations are common.
President Sirleaf has already ordered a investigation into the issue.
She had been praised for revoking corrupt and badly managed logging companies when she took office in 2006, after timber was used to finance arms sales during Liberia's long and bloody civil war.
The West African nation still has some of the largest areas of rainforest in the region, but the Global Witness report alleges that nearly a quarter of Liberia's landmass has been signed to logging companies using secret and often illegal permits.
