More than half the animal life found on the planet today live in the torrid zone. In tropic rainforest that is part of the torrid zone, you'll find many toucans and parrots. The toucans are well known to this region and found almost exclusively in the rainforests of South Africa. The parrots can be found all over South America, through the torrid zones of Africa and also Austria.
In other torrid zones across the world, you can find the Capybara that mostly lives near riverbanks. This is the world's largest rodent and you can find them in the torrid zones around the world. In South Africa, you can find Jaguar living in the torrid zone. Here you can also find zebra, lions, hyena, and tigers to name a few.
The human life in the torrid zone is divided into two categories. You have the Eastern Island and the Amazon and Congo basin. People who live in these areas have thrived and lives there for centuries. The people who live in the Eastern Island torrid zones have a modern day lifestyle where people living in the Amazon and Congo basin have more a primitive lifestyle.
