#6 Afternoon on the Amazon


canopy upper layer of trees in a rainforest
gloom darkness with only a little light
hurl to throw something very hard
mango a yellow and red fruit with a sweet taste
screech a very loud, harsh cry
swooped to dive quickly through the air (like a bird)
understory the layer of the rainforest under the canopy (not the ground)
