The rainforest animal I chose was the Western Lowland Gorilla. In the first picture, the gorilla is seen with its fur. In the second picture, it adapts to the warmer temperature because of climate change and loses its fur. The fur was originally there to warm up the gorilla when it got cold. The rainforest changed into a savanna because of climate change. According to www.eia.gov in 2021, the United States burned an average of around 19.89 million barrels of petroleum per day, or a total of about 7.26 billion barrels of petroleum in the whole year of 2021. It was a massive increase from 2020 where only about 1.6 million barrels of petroleum were burned each day. This has caused a decent raise in temperature and leaves late-October feel like mid-September in some places.
