Displayed at right is the color tropical rain forest.

The color tropical rain forest was formulated by Crayola in 1993.

It is unclear why Crayola called this color tropical rain forest since tropical rain forest is simply the politically correct synonym for jungle (technically, however, there is a slight difference--a jungle is actually a monsoon forest which is slightly different from a tropical rain forest).
