We are continuing our journey through the rainforest and have moved along to the understory. The understory is a dark place with small trees and bushes. Animals such as monkeys, geckos and praying mantises travel up and down vines and branches in the understory layer.
Geckos are fast and really good at hiding. They have long tails that can detach to save them from danger and then grow back later. Geckos have different patterns on their skin. We used q-tips to paint our geckos.
We made cute swinging monkey's. We used a straw for the branch and they can swing! We also made Tree Boa's.
