This is an example of a tropical rainforest food web. The producers are organisms that get their energy directly from the sun. The producers include: orchids, seeds, banana trees, bamboo, and coconut trees. The primary consumers are organisms that feed off of the producers, including: macaws, fruit bats, monkeys, insects, chimpanzees and parrots. The secondary consumers that feed off the primary consumers are the chimpanzees and parrots, vampire bats, red-eyed tree frogs, and iguanas. The tertiary consumers eat the secondary consumers which include: pythons and jaguar. The food web is a delicate balance of life. If an animal was wiped out due to deforestation or a natural disaster it would eradicate the balance of the food web. The decomposers (bracket fungi, jelly-like fungi, slimemold, coral fungi, and giled fungi) feed off of the carcasses of the animals in the food web.
