Summary: Discover live in the tropical rain forest, from exotic birds to species of insects. Presents an illustrated guide to the plants, animals, and insects found in the world's tropical rain forests.

Superb color photographs offer a unique eyewitness view of the remarkable and colorful plants, animals and insects of the world's jungles.

Learn how paper wasps make their nest, how a siamang moves, how wax is taken from the wax palm, how geckos fly and how pitcher plants trap insects. Discover what red lemurs eat, how poison is taken from a poison dart frog, why bowerbirds build bowers, why canopy leaves have drip tips, where gorillas live and why chameleons change color, and much, much more.
