Tropical rainforests are warm and wet.
They are home to millions of different plants and animals.
Tropical rainforests are very important to humans, because
they produce most of the oxygen, which we breathe.
Trees in a tropical rainforest are leafy and tall.
It is a dense forest and when it rains it takes about
10 minutes for a raindrop to travel from the top
of the tree to the ground!
There are tropical rainforests in Africa, Asia, Australia,
India and South America.
In a rainforest you can see monkeys, parrots,
hummingbirds, tigers, colourful frogs and long snakes.
There are a lot of insects and exotic plants.
