7 Photos That Show The Amazon Rainforests is Totally Insane

7. Darkness:

In the lushest parts of the Amazon, the canopy is really thick. And, by really thick, we mean REALLY THICK. In fact, the canopy in these places can actually succeed in blocking out 99% of sunlight, leading to a very dark jungle floor where all kinds of interesting animals and plants thrive. This sun-blocking effect (which is, in truth, an absorbing effect) is perhaps the most important role the Amazon and other rainforests play in regulating the Earth’s temperature.
