Other endemic species in the Valdivian temperate rainforest, the only one of its kind in South America, include the monkey puzzle tree, which has been around since the time of the dinosaurs.

Biodiversity: Rainforests are home to an incredible diversity of plant and animal species, many of which are found nowhere else on Earth.Fact 27: About 80% of the flowers found in Australian rainforests are not found anywhere in the world.
