Jungle Resources, Fruits, Animals and Creatures!

SHARK:
Greetings!

Do you have lots of different things made up for Jungle environments? It is pretty incredible the variety of different resources that--at least historically--come from Jungle environments. Wondrous woods, like Palm, Mahogany, Teak, and Bamboo. Elephant Grass! And the numerous kinds of tropical fruits--bananas, oranges, melons, and more. The varieties of nuts, too. Most nuts seem to come from tropical environments.

Then there are the bazillion kinds of fish, insects, and birds! Lots of other kinds of cool animals, too!

MONKEYS and APES!

I was reading through one of my animal books recently, and enjoyed reading about all kinds of different monkeys. Ground monkeys, tree monkeys, monkeys of different sizes, colours, and demeanors. Different social structures. Many people eat monkeys, too.

Brilliant Macaws! Lots of different coloured birds! These things make lots of noises, and often gather together in large numbers. The feathers, wow. Such colours, shading, different blends. Many traditions of native costumes, headdresses, cloaks, and other clothing using various kinds of feathers are jaw-dropping in their beauty and *wow factor*. Again, such birds are also often eaten, too.

Throw in some magical creatures and substances, and damn, all kinds of possibilities present themselves!

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

I've lived in the Hawaiian jungle, and never knew before that how much noise birds can make. Not exaggerating, dawn was like listening to a jet airplane landing for an hour or so. Probably pushing 100 decibels of sheer bird noise. Magnificent and nervewracking.
