Dangerous animals in the rainforest
Name: Burbank School
What is the most dangerous animal in the rainforest?
Perhaps you meant "endangered" rather than "dangerous?" Regardless, the
answer depends on which rainforest you are referring to: Rainforests exist in
Central and South America, Africa, India, SE Asia, and various Pacific Island
groups. All have different indigenous animals. All animals found only in
rainforests are endangered as the rainforests are destroyed. The most
"dangerous" (to man?) animals are the larger predators which are mostly just
the big cats. There are, of course, also poisonous animals (as well as
plants) like spiders and snakes.
