Biome, Sweet Biome

The Tropical Forests Biome is by far my favorite. Having grown up in its beautiful surroundings, its hard not to love it. The tropical forest biome is generally between the latitude of 23.5 N and 23.5 S. Rain is high, usually exceeding 2000 mm. The Soil is very rich and provides for lush and rich plants. The land is high in flora and fauna.

The Dwarf Monkey

The Dwarf Monkey lives in the rain forests of South America. It lives in the understory of the forest. It lives in territories, living in groups of 2-6 monkeys at a time. They eat tree gum, tree sap, fruit, and insects.

Mitochondrial Eve would have had medium skin tone, along with darker hair and an in between of many bodily characteristics. Modern humans contain such varieties because of our change in climates. Skin adjusts over time to increases or decreases in sunlight. Because of the globalization of the human race, scientists predict that human appearance will return to be similar to that of Mitochondrial eve.
