Amazon Rainforest by Mind Map: Amazon Rainforest

1. The food web within the Amazon can begin with producers like; flowers, fruits, leaves, plankton, insects, and dead plant and animal matter. Following this would be organisms like fish, kangaroos, birds, frogs, squirrels, and bats. The consumers following this would be organisms like snakes, owls, platypus, monkeys, deer, elk, and parrots. These small animals would be consumed by carnivores, like tigers, jaguars, cougars, leopards, crocodiles, alligators, green anacondas, pythons, and eagles.
