Transcript of Amazon Rainforest Species

The Red Howler Monkey population will decrease with the change in the environment because it relies on trees for it's food. Most of the trees would die/wither because they wouldn't have enough water or sun. The monkey's also use the trees for sleeping/hanging out so they would be forced to find a new space to camp out in.
Green Anaconda
Eyes & nose perched on top of large head
Allows them to
see prey while under water
Teeth & powerful jaws to hold onto prey while body wraps around prey to
Or they drag prey under water to

Swallow prey head-first & whole
The Amazon Rainforest
Kapok Tree
Big Leafy Mahogany
Red Howler Monkey
Have a loud howling noise that can be heard miles away. This prevents fighting between groups
They eat fruits, flowers, canopy leaves, and nuts
Have a strong tail to help them stay in trees
they have developed eye sight that is like ours
Live in groups of 6-15
Mantled howler monkeys are an exception, commonly living in groups of 15 to 20
There noses are very expert, they can smell yards away
Red-Eyed Tree Frog
Sleep during day stuck to bottom of leaves
Defense mechanism of
"startle coloration"
Closed eyes help blend in with leafy environment
Open eyes to momentarily stun/paralyze predator
chance to escape
Brazil Nut Tree
The brazil-nut tree is a common tree species that is 40m tall.
Yellow flowers grow on it, Which eventually turns into large fruits that containing between 1 and 2 dozen seeds.
The brazil-nut tree is found on floodplains and terra firma, where it tends to be widely spaced.
It is noted for the absence of buttresses and propping roots, which are replaced by surface and underground roots.
The nuts are harvested throughout the Amazon region, and are reportedly tasty, but high in fat content.
Cannot grow in most temperatures except for extreme heat such as the temperatures in Hawaii, extreme southern Florida, and extreme southern California (U.S. Examples).
200 feet
The big-leaf mahogany tree shoots through the top of the rainforest canopy.
Up to 350 years
Dark brown, flaky bark has a sweet odor, and the tree bears a gray-brown fruit and small white flowers.
It has leaves that can reach lengths of 20 inches, it has earned its “big-leaf” name;
big-leaf mahogany can be found throughout much of southern Mexico, Central America and into South America.
Since the 1500s, mahogany has been a prized timber product -- a building block for high-quality furniture and musical instruments -- valued for its deep reddish color, durability and beauty.
The removal of this great tree often leads to erosion and soil degradation -- damaging nearby river systems and, in turn, impacting other plant and animal habitats.
1000-2000 mm of precipitation needed for development
Average temperature of 24 degrees Celsius

Spectacle Bear
Specialized claws
for climbing
Walk on the soles of feet & have longer front legs then back to help them climb better
Climb to reach
in trees
Mostly vegetarian
5% of diet is meat
Leaf Cutter Ants
They live in a caste system
They do not eat leaves, they use them as shelter
They eat fungus
They use the leafs as fertilizer also
They feed on fungus only they have and can produce
They feed the fungus leaves
Pink River Dolphin
40% more brain capacity
than a human
Various skin color, light pink, brown or grey
They eat crab, catfish, small river fish, and occasionally turtles
color changes
when they get excited
6-8 ft long
Between 185-355 lbs
They have longer snouts then normal dolphins
Mostly nocturnal and territorial
Marks territory with urine
During the day it rests in trees and foliage
Male occupy more territory then females
Their prey is normally small
typically breed once every other year
They find their prey through odor trails
Night eaters
Long sticky tongues to capture crickets, flies, grasshoppers, & moths
lowland rainforest areas
close to rivers & hills
Can grow to 150 feet, higher than other trees in rainforest
Native to South America it now has spread to the primary rainforests of West Africa, and the Southeast Asian rainforests of the Malay Peninsula, and the Indonesian archipelago.
Wood is a pinkish white to ashy brown in color, with a straight grain.
Branches grow in horizontal tiers, and spread widely.
The crown has an open umbrella shape.
Can tolerate colder climates as long as the environment is humid

El Nino Adaption
El Nino Adaption
This tree would adapt to the change, This is because it is able to tolerate a colder climate as long as there is some sort of humidity.

The Ocelet would most likely live but their population may decrease. This is because they may not be able to find a lot of water and space to live. They mostly hang out in trees and undergrowth. They live like a normal feline, it would not be hard to live in the condition changes.
El Nino Adaptation
They need water to live, that is where they start to be grown. If the water is not as much as before they could not be able to reproduce. Also they need bugs but if there is not a lot of water to attract them, it may not happen. The temp they live in is very humid temperatures and if it went down to 60 that would be cold for them.
El Nino Adaptation
They live in river or swamps, which means they need water to live, The temperature they live in does not matter but they need water to live and going from 100-20 inches of water could affect the snake.
El Nino Adaptation
Since this bear is mostly vegetarian, It relies on trees/plants to eat. With the very limited amount of water, most of the plants and trees would die. This would decrease the size of the bear population because they won't be able to find very many greens to eat.
El Nino Adaptation
They would survive because they mainly need leaves to survive. They would be able to survive because there would be leaves no matter what even if some of the trees did die, or there was not as much water
El Nino Adaptation
The Pink River Dolphin will survive the climate but it will be a struggle. The river levels will lower and the dolphin will have a chance of getting stuck in a deeper river hole. There is also a chance that the Dolphin will be stuck in a hole with no food source and will end up adjusting to something else.
If there is not as much rain it struggle to grow because every plant needs water. If the temperature changes the sun won't be as bright and it may not get all the nutrients it needs. If the temperature is not very hot it will not grow.
This tree would not to be able to survive because it needs a minimum of 39 inches of rain. It would be able to survive if the climate changed because it can withstand 60-65 degree temperatures.
"New Species"- Snaeethird
We choose to give our animal wings because it can live in trees or land and since it has wings, it will be easier for it to escape predators.
We chose a snake body because its prey is meat which will survive in this new climate.
We chose to have it be part cheetah because cheetahs have good hunting skills and are strong.
