The jungle is a beautiful and mysterious place that is full of magnificent tall trees that hang like a huge canopy. Rotting leaves hide the roots that wiggle along the ground. It has dangling branches, colossal leaves and damp air. The sun tries hard to shine through the canopy but rarely touches the forest floor. The scent of exotic flowers fills the humid air. The drip, drip of water hitting the jungle ground can be heard like a leaking tap. A shriek slashes the air as the monkeys swing through the trees, screaming their warnings to a predator below. Squawking birds can be heard echoing through the jungle. Snakes are camouflaging against the trees ready to attack their next prey. The jungle is a perfect habitat for all sorts of plants and animals.
