Tropical Forest Demonstration
Have you noticed it's humid in our forest? Ever wondered how much rain a rain forest has? Experience rainy season in the Tropical Forest! Get set to get wet and explore how a rain forest and its inhabitants adapt to the rain. We're opening the heavens to saturate our forest with the most crucial compound in forming life - water! With rain more days than fine, watch how different species have gained different abilities to cope with this watery environment, and witness a small selection of the many millions of species that have flourished there.
