The Amazon Rainforest is the largest tropical forest in the world. It occupies 42% of the Brazilian territory, and is present in the states of Acre, Amazonas, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima, Amapá, Mato Grosso, Tocantins, and Maranhão.
It accounts for 1/3 of the world’s reserves of tropical rain forest. It has 20% of the planet’s fresh water and has a stock of minerals that has not even been calculated yet.
Research indicates that in the Amazon there are about thirty million animal species. And this is because not all species have been found and studied by scientists. There are some animals there that are still unknown to men.
