Detritus Level! Your knowledge of the rainforest is as low as the millions of different organisms that thrive on the rainforest floor eating dead things. We could pick anything from termites to fungi, but we’ve decided to be nice and say you are a beetle grub!

Undergrowth Level! You’re knowledge has reached as high as the rainforest undergrowth. Not great, but at least you’re above the damp and gloomy forest floor. You’re basically at the same height as an Amazon rainforest-dwelling Tapir!

Canopy Level! Your knowledge of the rainforest has grown like the 30 metre high Barrigona (pot-bellied) palm whose fruits are enjoyed by animals like toucans, tapirs and the one we’re assigning to you, the spider monkey!

Emergent Level! Being an expert we’re aware you know that the very tall trees that emerge from the rainforest canopy are known as emergents. They’re as high as your rainforest quiz score. Well done. You soar above your rivals like a Harpy Eagle (we just hope you don’t eat sloths like they do!)
