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.

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.

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 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.
