During the 60's a track was produced known as the Amen, which included a 10 second drum loop. This 10 second drum sample changed the modern music industry for ever, it became one of the most noticable and iconic beats in jungle and drum and bass's history.

Percieved to be the forefather of drum and bass and its many sub genres. During the 1990's a new scene was becoming popular; Hardcore, breakcore and rave started to appear regularly in clubs.
However the birth of jungle comes from the illegal warehouse parties themselves, where people where into the hyper melodical piano samples and the high pithched voice of which resembles a hypnotic female cartoon vocalist.

However in 1992, two genres broke of from the rave scene (other genres like breakbeat, techstep, etc were also broken down into seperate genres).
These genres were what we know today as jungle and happy hardcore.

jungle usually afflicts itself with ragga, hip-hop and even happy hardcore ( more genres are included however my resources are limited). The Amen break which is basically the ground or basic beat of jungle has been over produced into several different versions, which funnily enough all versions have alot incommon with each other.

It is said by many that drum and bass is slowly taking over most listeners with its more complex and experimental beats, but still, people say that drum and bass is dieing.

This is far from true, like rave , jungle too seperated into different genres and drum and bass looks like the most dominant one.

Jungle is a more complex genre of music than drum and bass (when it comes to talking about the beat, or drum rolls). Drum and Bass has more of a minimal beat, where as Jungle has more amens and more complex drum rolls. Jungle is mostly accompanied with reggae vocals (Ragga Jungle).
Compare any Ragga Jungle track to any Drum and Bass track that you know. You'll be able to hear the difference yourself.

A jungle is a forest land covered with dense vegetation. Some children or people would live in the jungle to make peace and quiet without even being near a city. Most children would often would be nude in the jungle if clothes are outlawed there. Some people would make wooden huts for houses and would sleep with all the noise around. Examples: George of the Jungle and Tarzan live in the jungle.
Jason and Julianne live in the jungle in a wooden hut. Jason is a naked feral child who doesn't wear any clothes, while his girlfriend Julianne on the other hand wears a midriff baring tube top and doesn't mind Jason's nudity. One day, Jason gets an erection and Julianne blows her whistle and Jason's erect penis urinates onto the grass. After which, Julianne with her midriff belly dances for Jason thus making him jerk off after urinating.

1. Involving raves , it's the idea of jumping around everywhere and not sitting down. These people usually have no idea what they're doing and have little or no talent with gloves, flowlights, orbits, poi, etc. They wear rave clothes like they fit in, but are rather annoying.

2. Involving vaginas, it's a unshaved, nasty vagina. Usually, girls that can't get a guy have jungles.
1. Raver 1: "Hey, look at that jungle guy over there! That's just sad!
Raver 2: "I never thought I'd see one that bad. He's jumping all over the place like a freak!"
Raver 1: "He is a freak."

2. Jungle Girl: "Do you want to eat me out?"
Guy: "H*ll, no b*tch! I've heard about that jungle down there!"
