Have you ever wondered what the Deciduous Forest was? Well stay here and I will tell you about it. With this tackk, you will learn about the climate, plants, animals, interesting facts, and how to survive in the Deciduous Forest.
The average temperature is about 50 degrees. The average amount of rainfall per year is about 30-60 inches. The temperature is actually pretty warm, if you ask me. The climate might be perfect for hikers!
There are beautiful pictures around the world, like roses, lilies, and tulips. But, what are some of the plants that live in the Deciduous Forest? Plants like lichen, moss, ferns, wildflowers, shrubs, and trees live in the Deciduous Forest. The pictures below are some of the plants. (Lichen, Ferns, and Wildflowers.)
Animals live all around the Earth. Ranging from cats, dogs, frogs, horses, birds...etc. But, have you ever wondered what kinds of animals live in the Deciduous Forest? Animals like Hawks, owls, cardinals, woodpeckers, deer, raccoon, opossum, porcupines, and foxes. The pictures below will show you some of the animals. (Foxes and Deer.)
The forest is located between the polar regions and the tropics. Because of this, the temperature is hot in the summer and cold in the winter.
The word "Deciduous," means, "falling off at maturity" or "tending to fall off."
How to survive
If you are lost in the Deciduous Forest, or any kinds of forests, then you need to know how to survive, build a shelter, build a fire and how to find food/water.
If I was lost, I would always try to head north. Usually, heading north leads to a clearing. When I am in the clearing, I stop, and try to see if I can hear any signs of people or a highway. If I do, I'll go towards the sound.
But, If I don't and it is getting dark, I would try to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together. When the fire is started, I would build a shelter out of Sticks and pines from pine trees. When I am finished, I will gather water. To gather water, tie a bag to a pine tree branch. and wait. Soon, you'll have fresh water.
If you don't have a bag, you can dig a hole. If you dig deep enough, you'll reach water.
To get food, you can eat certain plants, like honeysuckles, chicory, and asparagus. The picture below is a honeysuckle.
