In an ecosystem such as a rain forest, the scavenger is an animal that eats dead plant and animal matter on the forest floor. For instance, there are an incredible 2,124 species of butterfly: two-thirds of all Brazil's butterflies, and one-eighth of the world's butterfly fauna. Smaller temperate rainforests can be found on the southeast coast of Chile in South America. Environment, Development and Sustainability 15, 285­–300.
