The Rainforest is home to half of all animal and plant species. There are two kinds of rainforests: tropical, which are warmer and closer to the equator, and temperate, which are found above and below the equator in coastal regions. The rainforest is the oldest and most biodiverse ecosystem, with scientists estimating some forests in Southeast Asia having existed 100 million years ago. The trees in the rainforest can reach heights of 250 feet with dense canopy cover, which results in a lack of sunlight reaching the forest floor. Due to the intense thickness of trees in the rainforest, many animals living here have adapted to climbing and living in trees.

Margay
Scale illustration of an average Margay with dimensions for height and length compared to a human

The Margay (Leopardus wiedii), also known as the tiger cat, is a small cat native to South and Central America. Its primary habitat is the deciduous forest where it prefers to spend most of its time among the trees. As such, the Margay is a talented climber that has the ability to climb down trees head-first—a skill only shared with the Clouded Leopard.

The Margay has large eyes, round ears, brown fur with brownish-black rosettes, and claws that increase its tree climbing capabilities. It is similar in appearance to an ocelot although it has a more distinct face and longer tail.

Margays have a shoulder height between 12”-17” (31-43 cm), body length of 18”-31” (36-79 cm), and weight in the range of 5-9 lb (2-4 kg). The tail of a Margay is 12”-20" (31-51 cm) in length. Margays have a typical lifespan of 12-14 years wild and up to 24 years in captivity.

Pudú
Scaled drawing comparing the size of a Pudú to a typical person

The Pudú (Pudu mephistophiles) is the smallest deer in the world, with the northern Pudú being marginally smaller than the southern Pudú.  It has four slender, short legs with a sturdy body. Pudús have eyes that are small and black, with black necks, and 3 inch (8 cm) rounded long ears.

Males do grow antlers, but they are only several inches long because of their small body size. The cautious movements of Pudú keep the species hidden to prevent raising the chance of being detected by predators. Pudús generally only go out into open plains for food then rush back into the forest.

Pudú have standing shoulder heights between 1’2”-1’3” (35-38 cm), head-to-body lengths in the range of 2’7”-2’9” (80-85 cm), and overall weights of 20-33 lb (9-15 kg). The lifespan of a wild Pudú is roughly 8-10 years.

Moonrat

The Moonrat (Echinosorex gymnura) is a small mammal species not directly related to rats as its name or resemblance suggest. It is the primitive to the tropical hedgehog and has a long tail and black and white fur instead of spines. Moonrats are native to the jungle regions of southern Myanmar, the Thailand Peninsula, Malaysia Peninsula, Borneo, and Sumatra. The Moonrat has a distinct ammonia-like or rotten garlic odor that can be smelled from yards away. Their diet typically consists of snails, crabs, small vertebrates, and fruit.

Moonrats have a shoulder height of 5.5”-8.25” (14-21 cm), body length between 11.8”-17.7” (30-45 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 1.9-2.4 lb (.8-1.1 kg). The tail of the Moonrat is 7.9”-11.8” (20-30 cm) in length. Moonrats have a typical lifespan of 3-7 years in wild and up to 7 years when raised in captivity.

Capybara
Size comparison diagram of the Capybara compared to a typical person

The Capybara, or Hydrochoerus hydrochaeris, is identified as the largest living rodent in the world. Native to South America, the Capybara is a semi-aquatic mammal inhabiting the grasslands near water. As such, the Capybara is a skillful swimmer with the ability to submerge itself for an extended period and even fall asleep in water while keeping its nose and eyes above.

Physically, the Capybara is pig-shaped and blunt-muzzled with reddish-brown brittle fur. The Capybara’s diet generally consists of grasses and aquatic plants, but it is known to feed on its own feces in order to obtain protein.

Capybaras have a height of 20”-24” (51-61 cm), body length between 42”-53” (107-135 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 77-146 lb (35-66 kg). Capybaras have a typical lifespan of 7-10 years in the wild and up to 10-15 years in captivity.
