Living Along the Nile- With Animals!

Pictured above- Tilapias

There are lots of animals that live on the Nile! LOTS of them! A majority of them are fish and birds, but there are also many other different types. Some of these include Hoopoes (never heard of them, but they sure sound cute!), Turtledoves, Hawksbills, Cattlegrets, and Water Buffaloes. Some other common animals are Crocodiles and Hippopotamus'.

Tilapias, a type of fish, swim through the water incubating their babies in their mouth. This provides warmth and other conditions to help babies develop underwater. Awwww!
