  Fact
   

The Greatest River Flow


The Amazon Basin holds two-thirds of all the flowing water in the world. This is due to the fact it flows through the Amazon rain forest – the largest and wettest rain forest on the planet. It is right on the equator. Around the "belt line" of the Earth lies a warm, tropical zone with over 1,016 cm (400 in) of rainfall every year. A lot of water falls onto the land surrounding the river into the "Amazon River drainage basin". Whenever rain falls and lands anywhere in the basin, it all runs into the lowest place in the pan, which happens to be the Amazon River. The Amazon Rainforest is the home of 250 species of mammals, 3,000 freshwater fish, 1,800 birds, 10,000 trees, and 70,000 other plant species.
