In the Emergent layer, there are trees that can grow up to 70 metres in height and are as tall as sky-scrapers. Also they have thick waxy leaves so they don’t burn from the sun. The tree trunks for these trees are thin and tall to stablise them.


In the rainforest, you can find a lot of animals especially in the Emergent layer. There are mainly birds at the top of the rainforest as all the trees are up in the sky.
