A biome is a collection of plant and animal species that have common characteristics from the environment that they live in. There are many biomes in this world; two of these biomes are: tropical rain forest and a tropical dry forest.
A tropical rain forest is somewhat similar to a dry tropical forest since they are both tropical but they are definitely different. A tropical rain forest is very wet and humid; on average a tropical rain forest has 200-400 centimeters of rain yearly. The tropical dry forest on the other hand is dryer, with 150-200 centimeters of rain yearly, which is still a fair bit of rain.
The tropical rain forest and tropical dry forest are two unique biomes that have different yet similar characteristics.
