From out behind the kapok trees,
Come many personalities,
To overcome adversities.
Amazing Amazon Animals

Donít mess with one so serious;
To taunt this king is treacherous.
His coatís designed for royalty.
His stern look says donít look at me.
This ruler reigns conceitedly.
Jeering Jungle Jaguar

Speeding through the canopy top,
These playful acrobats wonít stop.
Lianas wrap the cocoa tree
For circus stars to swing with glee;
These monkeys play consistently.
Silly Squirrel Monkeys

Donít underestimate their size
As many foes met their demise.
A well-trained soldier colony,
Their victims die in agony.
Mean bugs who bite obnoxiously.
Angry Army Ants

Heís sneaky as a crook at work.
Beneath the murky creek heíll lurk;
Blending with the logs around,
Heíll yank his prey and hold to drown.
Heíll even loom out on dry ground.
Cunning Caiman Crocodile

A head peeks out to scan the scene;
He wants to pluck some plant cuisine.
But scared to leave the riverbed,
He plans in fear to dunk his head.
Not face his foes, heíll hide instead.
Tentative Timid Tapir

Serious, Silly, Sneaky, Scared
These creatures may live far away
But own my traits on any day.
Oh my! I think I need to pray.

Hi Frances. Just wanted to leave a quick note to let you know your entry "Pondering Personalities of the Rainforest," actually did very well in the South America Challenge. Although you didn't receive an award, you made it into the Highest Rankings for Level 3, placing 6th in Level 3 and ranking 19th in the Top 30 overall.

Competition in Level 3 is always very intense, so you did extremely well.

If you'd like to check the highest rankings for yourself, you can find them here:

The highest rankings are posted every Thursday evening on the Message Boards.

You definitely deserve a pat on the back. Well done. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
