Some Animals Of The Rainforest
The Morpho Butterfly's brilliant, deep-blue wings seem to glow in the sunlight. It's hard to see when its wings are folded.
Sometimes green, sometimes brown, the Anolis Lizard changes its color to match its background.
Leaf cutting Ants cut leaves high in the trees and carry them to the ground to feed their fungus garden. They don't eat the leaves, but eat the fungus that grows on the leaves.
The Lantern Fly has a large peanut-shaped head, and can barely be seen when it is sitting on a branch. When frightened, it flies off, showing its two large eye spots.
Army Ant Butterflies follow army ant trails. They eat droppings from the birds that follow the army ants.
The forest floor is the Mud Puddle Frog's home. Here it finds insects to eat, and lays its eggs in mud puddles.
Rotting fruit is the Owl Butterfly's favorite meal. The large eye spots on its wings look like owl eyes, and may scare away predators.
