Tree Dwellers, Animals, Amphibians, and More

For a wide variety of animals, trees serve as a source of protection. For some creatures, trees are a place to eat, sleep, congregate, and raise their offspring. Others benefit from the protection that trees provide from predators and the elements. Understanding the important relationship between trees and wildlife places an additional emphasis on the need to prevent deforestation. Tree-dwelling animals vary depending on the locations of forests in which they reside. In rainforest trees, one may find various species of birds and amphibians, including toucans and tree frogs. Tree-dwelling reptiles include boa species such as the emerald tree boa and the common tree boa in South America. Two- and three-toed sloths are mammals that live in the South and Central American rainforest trees. In the Amazon, jaguars often rest or hunt in trees, while lemurs are an example of mammals found in the forests of Madagascar. In forests around the world are species of monkeys that also call trees home. These are just a small sampling of tree-dwelling animals around the world.

Tree-dwelling animals aren't confined to forests. In urban cities and towns, there are a range of animals that call residential and public trees home. Birds, including owls, are the most expected and arguably the most common animal one might find. Depending on where one lives, however, one might find squirrels, opossums, and even raccoons living in trees.
