Jungle Coloring Pages

On this page you will find a collection of jungle coloring pages for kids. There are jungle scenes, rainforest animals (such as tapirs, hippos, chimpanzees, poison dart frogs, toucans, and many more), rainforest plants, and even jungle theme fonts. You will not find any lions here however. I know they're called the "king of the jungle", but they don't actually live in the rain forest.

I am including some of my own line art pictures which you could use as rainforest coloring pages. Most of these have been created based on photos from Morguefile and clipart from wpclipart.

You may also be interested in another habitat, my desert coloring pages.

The capybara lives in Central and South America in rain forests or open country near swamps, lakes, or rivers.It ranges in color from light brown, to reddish brown, to gray-brown with yellowish brown on its belly. It is the world's largest rodent, which means it has pair of constantly growing incisor teeth. It is designed perfectly for living in and around water, with partly webbed feet for walking on muddy ground and its eyes, ears, and nostrils on the top of its head so that it can remain almost completely submerged for long periods of time.

There are two types of elephants living in Africa and Asia (called the Indian elephant). They are grayish-black or grayish-brown. The African elephant is slightly bigger than the Indian elephant and has bigger ears. The African elephant has a bit of a dip in its back whereas the Indian elephant has a bit of a rounded back.

The gorilla lives in central Africa. It is black to brownish-gray with the males developing a broad silvery-white saddle as they get older. They are then called silverbacks, for obvious reasons. The gorilla is actually a peaceful vegetarian, but most of its disputes are settled by shows of aggression and beating its chest.

The hippopotamus lives in Africa. It is grayish-brown to coppery-brown to blueish-black with a pinkish belly. Hippos spend most of their day resting in large groups in the water. They can remain almost totally submerged because their eyes, ears, and nostrils are on the top of their heads. The male hippos are territorial and very aggressive.

The jaguar is found in the marshlands and tropical forests of Central and South America. They are yellowish-brown with black spots, although some can be completely black. They are fierce predators, and will even attack caimans (similar to crocodiles).


Leopard Coloring Pages

The leopard comes from Africa and southern Asia. It has a pale brown coat with black spots. It often ambushes its prey by leaping on it from the lower branches of a tree. Leopards are very strong predators and can drag large carcasses into trees so they can feed on it undisturbed.




Lots of monkey pictures - a huge list of all types of monkeys, including howler monkeys, spider monkeys and proboscis monkeys.

Other species of tapir have reddish-brown, gray, or almost black coats. Young tapirs are all dark reddish-brown with cream spots and stripes running along the body and legs for camouflage. Tapirs love swimming in rivers or sinking to the bottom. They also enjoy wallowing in the mud to cool down and keep off the insects.

They cover a wide area in search of their food which includes nuts, fruit, seeds, leaves, and flowers. They are intelligent and have impressive learning abilities, allowing them to mimic human sounds.

The toucan has a large serrated beak which enables it to reach fruit, its main diet, on small branches which wouldn't be able to support its weight, then grasp and tear the fruit. They have two toes pointing backwards and two toes pointing forwards on their feet. Toucans make their nests in hollow trees and in holes made by other animals, such as woodpeckers.

Alligators, Crocodiles, and Caimans

Alligators, crocodiles, and caimans belong to a group called crocodilians. Most of them live in freshwater rivers, lakes, and lagoons. It hunts its prey by stealth, having only its eyes and nostrils above the water, moving into striking range of its victim without being seen. They like to lie in wait in the water for mammals who come to drink or to cross.


chameleon coloring pages

My chameleon lineart - click to enlarge and draw your own pattern on its skin

The chameleon can change the color and pattern of their skin. They mainly do this to regulate their temperature or to communicate with other chameleons. When they want to warm up, their skin gets darker so that it can absorb more sun. They have a prehensile tail for gripping branches. Each eye can swivel independently so they can look in different directions at the same time.

Tree Boas

The tree boa is often green, allowing it to blend with the leaves in the trees, making it harder for any predatory birds to see it. It holds onto a branch with its strong, prehensile tail and lunges out and down to capture small birds and mammals.
