Rainforests are the most ecologically diverse places on the planet. There are several layers of vegetation, home to loads of unique, beautiful and sometimes bizarre plants and animals.
The canopy is around 20-40 metres off the ground, and stops most of the sunlight from reaching the understorey. Only about two percent of the light gets through all the layers to the rainforest floor.
