Sri Lanka has decent wildlife variation, which begins
with a decent number of mammals. The island is home to sloths, leopards, elephants,
and bats among others. The pinnacle is the sea life though as the rivers, lakes,
and surrounding waters a home to thousands of animals. This includes mammals, like
whales and dolphins, fish like tilapia, shellfish like lobsters and drabs, and mollusks
The bird life in Sri Lanka is also impressive as many
birds migrate to and from here. These birds include all types of birds, but water
fowls are perhaps the most common, including heron, frigate birds, and moorhens.
There is also a huge variety of reptiles on the island, including snakes and crocodiles.
The amphibian life here is one of the most diverse (for its size) and densely populated
anywhere in the world.
