Photo The Rainforest Pyramid enables you to experience the rainforest in a whole new way. In addition to a new entry, a walkway will lead you through the canopy level. Exploring the exhibit from a new vantage point, you will see new plants, birds, animals, fish and butterflies. You will also have access to the lower levels of the exhibit as in the past.

The 10-story Rainforest Pyramid is where over 1,000 species of exotic plants from the rainforests of Africa, Asia and the Americas meet.

Amidst the lush plants and trees are a wide variety of colorful orchids, violets, bromeliads as well as colorful macaws, an anaconda and turtles. The Moody Gardens Rainforest Pyramid is one of the most complete reproductions of the actual rainforest available.

Asian Rainforest
Second in size to its American counterpart, Asian tropical forests include those of Australia and the Pacific Islands. Void of bromeliads, there are plenty of other epiphytes, especially aroids, ferns and orchids. Massive colonies of birds' nest and staghorn ferns grow in some of the wettest areas, along with many species of pitcher plants.

African Rainforest
The African Rainforest is highly as unique with large ficus, mahogany and ebony trees, orchids and African violets. Important commercial plants originating here include coffee, castor bean, oil palm and vanilla. Madagascar's Rosy Periwinkle is one of the most important medicinal plants from this area for diseases such as childhood leukemia.

American Rainforest
The largest and most biologically diverse rainforest zone stretches from southern Mexico through Central America, the islands of the Caribbean and into South America. There are more than 25,000 species of plants native to this region, such as dieffenbachia, anthuriums, philodendrons, monstera, rainforest cacti, passion vines, powderpuff trees, plumeria and other exotic flowering plants, and thousands of species of orchids and medicinal plants.
