MAD Theory

If there was a fire in the rain forests animals would move, adapt, or die. These animals could...

Move: The animals that lived in the trees would have to move to a different area with  more trees or a place where there is not a fire.

Adapt: Birds could possibly adapt along with fish.

Die: animals that lived on the ground would probably die along with the animals that got trapped in the canopy (top of the tree)

Rapid Process

A rapid process could be a thunder storm or a hurricane that could occur in a rain forest.


Slender Lorises eat different kinds of food all day long. They rub urine on their selfs to make the sting from the toxic beetles not hurt as much.
