How do rainforest animals lay eggs?

Well, first the female gets pregnant, then after a couple weeks or months there about to lay eggs.They go find a hidden spot to lay their eggs. Some moms will stay, some will leave and come back. (The more babies an animal has, the shorter time the mother stays with the young and vice versa.) It's mostly like the animals in the woods do except the rainforest has more plants and trees.

How does cutting down trees affect us and our environment?

Trees give out oxygen. even because of them we have the rains. in short they maintain the ecological balance. If we would cut trees what is going to happen is that population won't stop growing but oxygen in the atmosphere will reduce. Another effect can be scarcity of food. and many other problems are attached to it such as less of rains will result in less water for irrigation. Less water for irrigation would result in less harvest which would again lead to less food and if this continues to happen for a long period of time then it might lead to famine type situations.

Trees have to breathe to live, same as us and every living thing on the planet. They breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. We breathe out carbon dioxide and breathe in oxygen. We've evolved around trees; they are the main things that give off oxygen. Without trees, we're not here. Cutting down trees takes away that oxygen. If you cut down a tree but plant two new ones that is fine. Trees are living things too.

The most important is, tree are necessary for rain. trees creates cold and humid atmosphere required for rain.

Second, when it rains, trees hold the water and and does not allow to pass over soil which avoids floods.

Third, they provide food to all of livings.

If we continue to cut tree at larger extent then, it will definitely affect the rainfall and also will create a unstable atmosphere which will lend to destruction on/of earth.

When we cut down trees, we are taking a home away from animals.

We loosen the ground which mostly causes landslides.

Trees cause shade and without that shade the ground dries up faster and there is not as much nutrients.

Sloths eat leaves, flower petals and other plant products. They are essentially herbivores. They are the perfect design presented so far by evolution to conserve energy to such an extreme that a simple feat like closing the eyelids takes a long time to be affected. So do their the most sluggish movement along the tree branch. They even give birth on trees.

They eat small insects, leaves and lots of vegetation and bugs. the three toed only eats off a certain tree -all the fruit trees and leaves and eats nothing else.the two toed sloths eat all the other above
