Sundarbans freshwater swamp forests

WWF Abstract

Heat, humidity, and the cyclones that tear through this ecoregion act together to turn this area into swamp-forest soup. But itÂ’s a fine place to live if you are a crocodile. You can spend your days feasting on fish and land animals that come too close while taking a drink. In this watery environment, hunting is good for fish-eating birds such as ospreys and gray-headed fish-eagles. Monkeys keep their feet dry and escape from tigers by staying in the treetops.
