Three breathe while submerged under the water,

Published by admin on

 Three main reasons why you should play for us in Brazil is our physical geography, vast culture and traditions, and human environment interactions.      Our first reason why is our physical geography. One of Brazil’s most valuable assets is its dense covering of rainforests. Our famous the Amazon Rainforest is the most significant of these, covering a vast portion of the country and providing the ideal habitat to approximately one-third of all animal species in the world. Rainforests cover almost 60% of the entire area of Brazil at 477 698 000 hectares, which is equivalent to 1 844 394 square miles or just under 3 million square kilometres. Our rainforests consists of approximately 56 000 species of plants (described), 1 700 bird species, 695 amphibian species, 578 mammal species and 651 reptile species. We have many species of animals in our rainforests. One is the Green Anaconda (Eunectes Murinus), which is also the world’s second longest snake. The nostrils are situated on top of the head, well forward, to allow it to breathe while submerged under the  water, the same reason why the eyes are set high up on the head, this also allows it to swim with its body under water while still having its eyes above water. The head is narrower than the body and most Green Anacondas have orange-yellow stripes on both sides of the head.            Our Agriculture is a very important industry in Brazil, as our country has immense agricultural resources available to it. Its most significant products in this sphere are coffee, soybeans, wheat, rice, corn, sugarcane, cocoa, citrus and beef (in order of importance). There are two main agricultural areas to the country. They are Northeast Brazil (including some of the Amazon Basin) and Central Brazil. If you are in Northeast Brazil the agricultural area is far drier and less equipped. Our agriculture often succumbs to droughts, and lacks infrastructure, capital and good soil, due to minimal rainfall. This area is occupied mainly by subsistence farmers (who survive off of their produce). Central Brazil for example , for generations, been considered to be unsuitable for farming. However, this area (partly known as cerrados) is now booming, being used extensively for mechanised crop agriculture. Vast expanses of this land are still to be developed, being used only in pasture, but having the potential to produce excellent farming and exporting crops, but some of our cattle farming remains one of our country’s key industries, since we produce millions of tonnes of beef every year. Most of our cattle farming occurs mainly in Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Goiás and Minas Gerais.       We are one of the South American countries that is well known for its festive celebrations and annual events. In fact, no matter what time of year you  visit Rio de Janeiro,  you are sure to notice the friendly ambience and merry characteristics of the locals. One of our most loved is Carnival. Carnival is celebrated throughout Brazil, and each city observes it in its own unique way. This celebration takes place 46 days before Easter and, although celebrated mostly by Roman Catholics (as well as some other Christian denominations), it is believed to have pagan roots, as do many of the modern Christian celebrations (e.g. Christmas). Today, Carnival is characterised by brightly-coloured costumes, opulent decorations and jolly music. Dance and music parades fill the streets as the audience looks on and joins in the festivities. Another event is New Year’s in Copacabana. New Year’s in Copacabana is inside Rio de Janeiro we hosts the best known New Year’s party in the world. Partiers come to our event from all over the country and the world to share in the celebrations. Fireworks, music performances and other festivities mark this celebration.
