An ecosystem is when living and nonliving things interact with each other. Plants get their energy from the sun than bigger animals eat the plants to get their energy. The sun is the original source of energy in every food web! Plants are called producers because they make their own food. Some of the plants in the rainforest are: seeds, bamboo, banana trees, and orchids. Some of the consumers in the rainforest are: fruit bats, parrots, macaws, chimps, lemurs, and insects. Some of the carnivores in the rainforest are snakes and jaguars. The decomposers in the rainforest are mushrooms.If animals die it could affect the whole food web, kind of like a domino effect! Humans kill a lot of animals and some of the animals in the wild are almost extinct! I would never kill an animal in my whole life unless it is an insect!
