Rainforest animals. The words conjure up images of big cats with beautiful coats moving silently in the jungle. Or of monkeys chittering down from the green, leafy treetops if the rainforest canopy. Or footprints of mysterious animals like the Okapi or Tapir, left in the damp mud near a stream at dawn. I will always be fascinated and obsessed with the tropical rainforest. So it's little wonder the animals of the rainforest very often appear in the image library. One of the first animals I drew was a tiger, and since then I've added dozens of other rainforest animals (to see all drawings of the animals of the rainforest and not just the mammals; frogs, lizards, birds, etc, please visit the rainforest animal page) So far, I have only been to the tropical rainforests of Costa Rica, but I'm hoping one day to spend some time in some of the primary rainforests of South America. Ideally spending time doing field sketches of the flora an fauna. I add a few rainforest animal to these galleries every few weeks. If you have a suggestion for another animal, I'd like to hear it. Please send me an email letting me know the species.
The lush, tropical rainforests that circle much of the equator of the planet are home to hundreds of species of mammals. These animals range in size from the tiny mouse lemur of Madagascar, to the massive African Forest Elephants of the dense jungles of Africa. Many of these animals are well-known, like the Jaguar and Orangutan. But many of them, due to their isolation in places like Sumatra, are hardly known to science and little is known about them. While most are land animals, there are some aquatic mammals in the rainforest like the Amazon River Dolphin of South America. Many primates such as monkeys and apes are found in the tropics, as well as some bizarre animals like the sugar glider, a small gliding rodent found in the rainforests of Australia. Like other mammals, rainforest mammals are warm-blooded vertebrate animals who feed their offspring milk produced by the mother. Many highly endangered animals - the the Javan Rhino - are found nowhere else on earth except for the few remaining forests left where they are indigenous to. They, like many other rainforest animals, face an uncertain future as more and more of their habitat is lost due to human incursion, industrial exploitation and climate change.
