Although they booth sound the same, there are some differences between a jungle and a rain forest. For one thing, a jungle is the thickest area of the rainforest. Hence, we can say that all jungles are rainforests but not all rainforests are jungles. This goes to consider that there are many divisions to classify the environment around us.

This helps us to group the living things according to habitat as well as identify different areas of vegetation on the planet. A jungle may contain different biodiversity when compared with the rainforests. Moreover, jungles are home to a variety of different animals which may not be present in rainforests.
