Rainforest at Night
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     While you sleep, another part of the world is awake. The rainforests are as busy at night as they are in the day. Life goes on with different faces.
2     The light goes quickly from the rainforest. The trees, wrapped in their heavy green covers, keep some light from ever reaching the ground. It is there that the darkness comes first, as silently as the paws of a jaguar.
3     The jaguar is a large spotted cat. He hunts in the jungle at night. He lives in South America.
4     Some jaguars are black. They are hard to see. They hunt many animals.
5     They are not the only night hunters. Margays are small tiger cats. They live up in the trees. They catch monkeys, birds, rats, and other animals.
6     Another cat is the ocelot. They live on the ground. Sometimes they are awake during the day.
7     Some other animals are awake at night. The tapir is a black and white animal. It looks a bit like an elephant with a very short trunk. They like to eat plants along rivers. Some people call it a mountain cow.
8     Some of the night animals are small, like the Paca. It is a rodent that lives on the ground. It eats fallen fruit.
