Tropical Rainforests, such as the Amazon, are found near the equator in Central and South America, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Australia. The tropical rainforest floor layer, or forest floor, is the ground layer of this biome. It lies beneath the emergent, canopy and understory layers, which is the reason why almost no sunlight reaches this area.

The information is presented in a simple list format where both adults and kids will appreciate the interesting facts.
