Of the Earth’s 10 million species of plants and animals, almost one-third call the Amazon rainforest home. A single tree in Peru was found to have 43 different species of ants, a total that approximates the number of ant species found in the entire United Kingdom. Needless to say, the Amazon is teeming with life with a new species discovered every three days.
