This is the impressive size of the largest rainforest

The term "tropical rainforest" describes an area with a dense tree arch and annual rainfall of 2000 to 5000 mm. In addition to the well-known tropical rain forests, there are also temperate ones.

But today we are going to look at a tropical rainforest, the largest in the entire planet: It is so large that it spans nine countries.

The tropical rainforest covers nine South American countries and covers about 6 million square kilometers. However, it is a very rough estimate, for two reasons: the first is that the limits of the forest are not clear; second that it also converges with similar biomes beyond its diffuse borders. A biome is a certain part of the planet that shares the climate, flora and fauna.

This jungle is part of the Amazon biome, which covers almost 7 million square kilometers, and includes the entire Amazon river basin. Approximately two thirds of tropical slevas are in Brazil.

In the Amazon live about 30% of the planet's species. It is said that a single Amazon bush contains more species of ants than all of Britain.
