Animals of the Temperate Forest

© Jakob Radlgruber - 
Some of the widest range of climates are found in the temperate forests of the world. Temerate forests can be either deciduous or evergreen. Deciduous forests contain primarily trees which lose their leaves in the winter. In the past there were more deciduous forests, but many of these forests were cleared to make land for growing crops.

Temperate forests are the home to a large amount of wildlife, but they do not have as many different animal species as tropical forests.

The Gray Wolf was once one of the world's most widely distributed mammals. Wolves have declined in number because of man made changes in land usage. Now, many of the 39 sub-species of the Gray Wolf make their home in Temperate Forests.
