Transcript of The Jungle
In today's project we will be talking about...
What Is The Jungle?
The Difference Between The Forest and The Jungle
What Is The Jungle?
The Difference Between The Forest And The Jungle
In the forest the tree's only lose leaves during the winter
In the jungle the tree's lose their leaves all year around
Forests and jungles are similar because they both have shade, clearings, and dead trees and branches
Forests are larger than jungles
Forests can be found all over the world
Jungles are impenetrable
Animals That Live In The Jungle
Saprophytes are the organisms that act as the jungles` decomposers, competing with the heavy rainfall which constantly washes away nutrients on the forest floors.
Types Of Decomposers:
Our T-Chart Of Biotic & Abiotic Elements
A jungle is an area of land overgrown with a dense forest and tangled vegetation
The jungle is filled with tons of different species of animals and plants
Jungles are usually in warm places with lots of rainfall
Animals In The Jungle
Cobras are reptiles that are like lizards with no legs also known as a snake
They like to live on the ground or in the canopy of the jungle
Cobras like to eat rat's, birds, frogs, and other small rodents
What Is A Decomposer?
Parrot are big colourful birds that live in the jungle
They like to live in warm weather but some like to live in cold weather
Parrot like to eat seed's, fruit's, vegetable's and tree nuts
Decomposers work extremely efficiently and, together with the warmth and wetness which helps accelerate decomposition, can often break down dead animals and vegetation within 24 hours.
It helps break down animal wastes, dead plants, rotting wood and more
It is a plant, fungus, or microorganism that lives on dead or decaying organic matter
The jaguar is the largest cat in America. It has a compact body, broad head and powerful jaw
Vegetation In The Jungle
Jaguars like to live near water and hunt alone. They do not stay in large groups
Jaguars like to eat crocodiles, snakes, monkeys and anything else they can catch
The Bengal Tiger is one of the largest species of tigers in the world. There are only 2,500 left in the wild
Vegetation In The Jungle
They like to live near swaps and grasslands even high-altitude rocky mountains
Bengal Tiger like to eat rabbits, fish and any other rodents they can get to
Howler Monkey are among the largest New World monkey's and one of the only few nest-building monkey's
Howler Monkey live within groups of 5-15 with usually 3 males. They spend most of there time in the treetops
They like to eat fruit, flowers, buds, and tree nuts. They need to be careful not to eat too many leaves because it can poison them
In The Jungle
Toucans eat tropical fruit, spiders, lizards, frogs, snakes and even plunder nests of smaller birds, taking eggs and nestlings
Red Ginger Flower
Found on the forest floor and also spend some time in ponds
Red Ginger flower
They like to eat herbaceous vegetation, fruits (they really like bananas) and even aquatic plants
Tapir are large mammal's that are like a pig, they are closely related to horses and rhinos
Poison Dart Frogs are found in the trees as well as under logs and rocks
They are small frogs that are recognized by their colours, yellow, black, blue, orange and green
When they are tadpoles they are omnivores and when they are adults they become carnivores. They enjoy eating flies and other insects
Ants live in large colonies, sometimes reaching 3 million ants
Eva V & Victoria Z
They build gigantic hills for their home that are about 30 feet wide and 20 feet deep
They like to eat leaves and the fungus that grows on the leaves
Toucans make their homes in holes in trees. They usually live in pairs or small flocks
Toucans are one of the largest birds in the jungle. They have a black body and white throat
Producers are plants that create their own food and energy
What are producers?
Examples Of Consumers:
How do produceres make food?
Producers make their food by taking sunlight and using the energy to make sugar.
The plant uses this sugar, also called glucose to make many things, such as wood, leaves, roots, and bark.
What Are Consumers?
Examples of producers:
Consumers are people or animals that eat producers to give them food and energy
They eat the producer, a secondary consumer eats this consumer (primary consumer), and so on
What D0 consumers eat?
Some consumers (herbivores) eat producers
Others consumers (omnivores or carnivores) eat smaller consumers.
ex. A snake eats a frog
Producers & Consumers
Tiger (secondary consumer)
Why Ecosystems Are Limited
Ecosystems are limited in the number of living things it can support. The reason is, that ecosystems are limited in the amount of resources that they can produce. For example, if the jungle had many Bengal Tigers their population would increase. This would cause them to not have enough resources like food and water. Since Bengal Tigers are carnivores there only source of food is to rely on meat. Also with not enough space in the jungle it will be hard to seek shelter and find prey. Then, they would overpopulate and all die from hunger. This would cause smaller animals that the tiger eats to overpopulate and so on. Eventually, the whole jungle would be almost empty and it would be even more overgrown.
