Cambodia has all sorts of animals, some of which are becoming more and more rare, such as the Java rhinoceros, the Asian elephant, the Ko Prey, the gaur (wild ox), the water buffalo, the tiger, or the sao la (antelope). However, bear, buffalo, leopards, monkeys or snakes still live in the country's forests.
We do not forget the crocodiles, however they only live on farms, where they are bred for their flesh and skin.
Birdwatchers will be delighted, as numerous species have chosen Cambodia as their domicile. You can see cranes, egrets, sparrowhawks, falcons, kites, eagles, vultures, peacocks, quail, woodcocks, owls, heron, pelicans, wild ducks, cormorants...
National parks and animal reserves have been created to preserve this nature.
