How do animals navigate through dense forests?

    Animals navigate dense forests through a combination of sensory adaptations and learned behaviors. Many species have keen senses of smell, sight, and hearing, allowing them to detect obstacles, locate prey, and identify paths. Additionally, animals often develop cognitive maps of their environment, memorizing key landmarks and utilizing natural features for orientation. Some species, like primates, are adept at swinging through trees, while others, like big cats, use stealth and agility to move through the underbrush.
