I am going to tell you about a very interesting cinder cone volcano...The Paricutin!

It is home to many plants, animals, and a lot of different trees;just wait you will be thrilled to hear about this volcano. It is located in Southern Mexico


Today it sits at about 1,391 feet tall (424meters);it is also about 10,400 feet above sea level (3,170meters). It last erupted in 1952.It hasn't erupted since 1952, and most likely wont erupt again. Well I hope you learned a little bit about the Paricutin from my article.
