Bangladesh's tropical climate and fauna are similar to those of India. You may therefore see snakes, crocodiles, monkeys, gibbons, mongoose, leopards, bears, deer and hundreds of birds and fish! Not to mention cockroaches, huge mosquitoes and tiny, very aggressive ants. Beware, their venom itches and burns for hours!
However, Bangladesh's emblematic animal is, of course, the royal Bengal tiger. It is a magnificent animal that is the pride of the country but that is also very feared. Indeed, the country's inhabitants say that it has a preference for human flesh. Since it is constantly being hunted, today it is a threatened species.
St. Martin's Island is home to the only coral colonies found in Bangladesh.
