Temperate Deciduous Forest

Forest Animals
Precipitation in the temperate deciduous forest falls throughout the year. However, during the winter months it is usually frozen and less is available for animals to drink. Animals living within this biome must adjust to cold winters and hot summers by hibernating, migrating, or keeping active all winter. Leaves fall off trees here in the fall, leaving animals with less cover to hide themselves from predators. 

The information and pictures about these animals are taken from the Multimedia Animals Encyclopedia
