Forest animal does not equate to dense undergrowth specialist as Mr. 
Bois is referring to.  While you couldn't tell it from today's pine 
plantation forests in the South, a lot of forests are pretty open around 
the tree base as the canopy makes it difficult for underlying brush to 
grow.  Naturally, this is not always the case, there are all types of 
forests.  But we need to watch our statements concerning 
overgeneralities.  Course, if I misinterpreted your comment and you 
actually meant dense overgrowth specialist I apologize.
