Rainforests are some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. They are home to a wide variety of wild animals, including many species of primates, birds, reptiles, and amphibians. Rainforests are also home to a large array of plants, many of which are found nowhere else on earth. The rainforest provides a unique habitat for many species of animals, allowing them to thrive in their natural environment.
The one thing you won’t generally see in a rainforest is a mirror. That’s why this video is such a treat.
A lot of people don’t know that most animals can’t recognize their own reflection. Yes, there are some animals that exhibit what’s known as “self-recognition,” which means knowing that what’s in the mirror is simply a reflection of themselves. These include chimpanzees, self-recognition include dolphins, elephants, and magpies.
But to most animals, what they see is not a reflection, it’s another animal. And that’s what makes this video so hilarious. Watch these crazy reactions from animals in the rainforest and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
