Photo taken in one of the remaining areas of the Atlantic Forest.

Atlantic Forest.

The Atlantic Forest is a terrestrial Biome and region which extends along the Atlantic coast of Brazil to Paraguay and the Misiones Province of Argentina.

Despite so little forest remaining, the Atlantic Forest remains extraordinarily lush in biodiversity and endemic species, many of which are threatened with extinction. Approximately 40 percent of its vascular plants and up 60 percent of its vertebrates are endemic species, meaning they are found nowhere else in the world. The official threatened species list of Brazil contains over 140 terrestrial mammal species found in Atlantic Forest. In Paraguay there are 35 species listed as threatened, and 22 species are listed as threatened in the interior portion of the Atlantic Forest of Argentina. Nearly 250 species of amphibians, birds, and mammals have become extinct due to the result of human activity in the past 400 years. Over 11,000 species of plants and animals are considered threatened today in the Atlantic Forest.

interesting bug with wonderful shape as it is mathematically designed. I think this shape helps in flight as well as in misinterpretation to the preditors. the colors too. good work
