The Amazon Rainforest



The Amazon Rainforest - The Amazon forest Brazil (Portuguese: Floresta Amazônica or Amazônia; Spain language: Selva Amazónica or Amazonía) is a rain forest in the Amazon, South America. This area, also known as Amazonia or the Amazon Basin, covering an area of seven million square kilometers of its own, although the area of 5.5 million square kilometers, is located in nine countries: Brazil (with 60 percent of the rainforest), Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana. This is the home of indigenous peoples, including the Urarina in Peru.


Amazon also includes the most extensive tropical forests in the world, and had two other names, yaitu'paru lung dunia'karena generate 30% of the Earth's oksigendi, and the ' green hell ' because each year the river overflowed. Heavily forested making it all look the same and the last one as many attacks from Predatory insects that largely have not been named. Thirty per cent of the total number of animals and half of all plant species exist in the forest. Some types of animals in the forest is the jaguar, tapir, anakonda, boa, the morpho blue butterfly, Eagle Harpies, sloth, caimans, wild boar, and much more. While many types of plants that are the tree kapok tree, elephant ear, giant lilies, orchids, jarda, sapodilla, banana trees, and others.


Strange structures in the Amazon jungle

The Amazon rainforest is the Amazon rainforest in South America. This area, also known as Amazonia or the Amazon Basin, covering an area of seven million square kilometers of its own, although the area of 5.5 million square kilometers, is located in nine countries: Brazil (with 60 percent of the rainforest), Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana. This is the home of indigenous peoples, including the Urarina in Peru.
The Amazon rainforest is filled with mysteries ranging from strange animals to tribes that exist therein. At this time it appears again the mystery of the Amazon rainforest. That is a strange structure appear mysteriously.
This structure looks like a tower surrounded by a circular fence. If we look at it more closely, it looks thin fibres, indicating the possibility that this structure is a hive of insects or fungus. However the unique shape have created confusion among scientists.

What is its use? and the most important is what creatures make it?
This bizarre structure was first spotted by Troy Alexander on June 7. He was a student at Georgia Tech, he saw it the first time ... is on the surface of the walls of the tent near the Tambopata Research Center in northeastern Peru.

Not long after that, he discovered three more similar objects on the surface of tree trunks in the forest. The mysterious structure is small, only 2 cm in diameter.
When Troy post photos on the site reddit, no one could recognize him.
Phil Torres, a biologist who also worked in the Tambopata and then post a link that photo on twitternya and quickly became viral. However, still no one could recognize him.
"I don't know what makes it or do it," said William Eberhard, an insect expert who works at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute.
"I've seen her picture and still do not know what animals make it," said Norm Platnick, a spider expert at the American Museum of Natural History.


"I have never seen such a structure before," said Jonathan Coddington who study spiders and also served as associate director at the National Museum of Natural History.
Insect expert Gwen Pearson said that the consensus of expert colleagues on other insects suggests that the structure may be created by a moth from the family Bucculatricidae.
Does look there's little resemblance to our mysterious lair. Unfortunately not seen any unique tower at its centre.

Gwen also did not cover the possibility that insects are responsible is a moth of the family Urodidae commonly make a cocoon-shaped basket.
"But we could all just guessing. We had no clue at all and that's my opinion as an expert, "he said.

Although the nests of moths Urodidae can be categorized as a masterpiece, but the shape is distinctly different from enigmatic our fence.
Todd Gilligan from Colorado State University who is also President of the community of Lepidopterist (expert on butterflies and moths) says, "some kind of moth made a fence to protect their eggs by using material from the stomach. So build a fence around an object isn't something foreign. But I've never seen this kind before. "
"Maybe it was a nest of spiders from Mars," said another while commentators joking.
Because of its mysterious, there is the possibility that this structure is made by a type of insect that has not been known before. If so there is not much of a surprise, given how rich variation of Amazon rainforest dwellers.
