The height of tall trees offer natural protection for many species of animal that make their homes in them.  Some animals build nests within tree branches, while others live in tree cavities.  Fallen logs, discussed in another section, are other suitable home sites offered by trees.

Some examples of animals that live in trees include:  some species of snake (Green Tree Python), owls, monkeys, koala bears, orangutans, birds, squirrels, tree frogs, raccoons, and insects.

These tropical trees in the Caribbean are home to a species of ant that builds its nest high in their branches.  If you ever visit the Caribbean, look up into the trees.  those dark, huge, spherical mounds high up are the nests of Caribbean termites.  This species usually forages at night, but I've seen them walking in line formation up and down the trunks of trees during daylight.

Tree bark makes a wonderful hiding place for many insects.  Can you spot anything hidden in the image of a pine tree below?  Look closely.

Look carefully at images 1 and 2.  Can you see the moth eggs?  The female rusty Tussock Moth is hoping you don't see them either !  The female has secured her eggs in the crevice of a pine tree to protect them from the winter winds.  It looks like she was successful since these photographs were taken in early June and many eggs are remaining, ready to be hatched.  

When hiking in nature, it's important to keep your eyes open - you never know what you might find!
