Mystery of Amazon Jungle


Mystery of Amazon Jingle


The Amazon Forest, located in South America, is the largest forest in the world.  The Amazon River is the lifeblood of the Amazon jungle.  This vast Amazon rain covers an area of ​​about 6 million square kilometers in about 9 countries.  In terms of size, Amazon is about 36 times bigger than Bangladesh.  The Amazon is half of all the rainforests in the world.


There are about 3,900 crore trees of about 40,000 species in this forest.  About 20 percent of the world's oxygen is produced in the Amazon rainforest.  That is why it is called the lungs of the earth.


 The Amazon rainforest was created about 50 million years ago during the Eocene.  The Amazon jungle covers almost the lion's share of South America.  Out of 60 lakh sq km area of ​​this forest, 55 lakh km area is affected by humid climate.  Amazon is located in 9 countries.  Of these nine countries, 80 percent of the Amazon region is located in Brazil alone.  The remaining 13 percent is in Peru and 10 percent in Colombia.  The rest is located in 6 other countrie


 Biodiversity-rich Amazon forests are home to some 40,000 species of trees, 1,300 species of birds, 2,200 species of fish, 428 species of mammals, 36 species of reptiles, 427 species of amphibians and 2.5 million species of insects.  In addition to beauty, the Amazon jungle is home to many endangered species.  There are numerous venomous snakes in the Amazon forest, including the cheetah tiger, the electric heel, the carnivorous piranha, and the venomous dark frog.


 The river that flows through the Amazon jungle is known as the Amazon River.  It is also the second longest river in the world.  This river holds more water than any other river in the world.  The Amazon River is made up of about 1,000 tributaries.  These tributaries are the lifeblood of the forest.  Of the few major tributaries, 18 are more than 1,000 miles long.  The river carries about 20 percent of the world's water.  Every 4.2 million cubic feet of water falls into the ocean where the Amazon River joins the ocean.  The Amazon Basin is the largest drainage basin in the world.  Most of which are located in Brazil.


 Several circular designs can be seen on the chest of the Amazon.  These designs are still shrouded in mystery.  The idea is that the designed parts were used as burial or protection areas.


 According to tradition, the ancient Amazons were the artists of this design.  It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.  Evidence suggests that these structures were built between 1,200 and 1,500 years ago.


 Another mystery of the Amazon is the boiling river that flows through it.  The water in this river is literally very warm.  The maximum temperature of this river can be up to 93 degrees Celsius.  Scientists have not yet been able to determine the cause of this heated water.  The locals think it is a special natural force.


 The arboretum of the Amazon produces about 20 percent of the world's oxygen.  That is why it is called the lungs of the earth.  But like other regions, deforestation is going on in Amazon.  Scientists believe that if this continues, the Amazon rainforest could disappear in the next 50 years.

 The human relationship with the Amazon jungle is quite old.  A total of 20 million indigenous people live in the Amazon.  They first settled in the riverine areas.  In the past these people were divided into different societies.  The arrival of Europeans in the Amazon in the sixteenth century led to a decline in the number of Amazonians.  The study found that about 11.6 percent of the total land area of ​​the Amazon is being used by indigenous peoples.  But they did not cause much damage to the biodiversity of the forest.  There are currently about 400 to 500 Ameri-Indian tribes living in the Amazon.  It is thought that 50 of these indigenous groups have no connection with the world's civilized society.
