Sri Lanka lowland rain forests

WWF Abstract

In the low-lying areas of the island country of Sri Lanka are the evergreen rain forests. The thick forest canopy is made up of over 150 species of trees, some reaching as high as 148 feet (45 m). Mangroves line the shore, where fish feed and breed among the tangled roots. The water is warm, and if you're alert you might realize that what you assumed to be a floating log is in fact a mugger crocodile.
