Jungles are rich in biodiversity. Thousands of types of animals and plants inhabit jungles. The warm weather and the dense cover of the thick vegetation make jungles ideal for living things that thrive in warmer climates.
Even though particular animals can vary greatly from one jungle to the other based on geography and temperature. There are some types of animals that are common in all the jungles of the world. So let us see what kind of animals we can expect to see in nature’s backyard.
Birds, you must be wondering, birds aren’t that exotic or rare. Birds are literally everywhere you go. But not these birds. Jungle birds are much more exciting to see. Birds in the jungle are known for their weird beaks and beautiful color coats.
Think of exotic birds like Toucans, Macaws, and hummingbirds. All of these and hundreds of other species of birds live in the jungle canopy. Jungles offer a great variety for bird watchers and photographers alike.
You can’t have a jungle without snakes. The warm climate of the jungle and the abundance of small prey offers great breeding grounds for all kinds of snakes.
But be careful; as much as these colorful snakes are beautiful, they can also be deadly. In fact, jungles are known to be home to the most venomous snakes on earth. So always be mindful of keeping your distance from snakes.
Just like birds, insects are everywhere. Every place that allows life to exist, you shall find insects. And since jungles are such massive biomes themselves, they are home to millions of types of these creepy crawlers.
The insects in jungles are usually much larger and exotic than those you are familiar with at home.
2. The cat family
Pumas, cougars, leopards, and panthers. These are just some of the members of the cat family that rule the jungles. Usually, members of the cat family are at the top of the jungle food chain.
But like all other animals, that can hurt you. It is always a good idea to keep your distance and do nothing to provoke these majestic creatures.
Among the jungle canopy live our closest relatives in the animal kingdom. The particular type of primate can vary from jungle to jungle. But you can’t have a jungle without them.
From small howler monkeys to large gorillas, Primates come in all shapes and sizes. The larger primates like Gorillas like to spend most of their time on the ground. While smaller ones like the safety of the trees.
This concludes our guide to the type of animals you can find in the jungle.
