Sundarbans, West Bengal
Situated on the lower end of Gangetic West Bengal, the Sunderbans is an UNESCO World Heritage Site, criss-crossed by hundreds of creeks and tributaries. The Sunderban forest is home to more than 250 tigers. The Royal Bengal Tigers have adapted themselves very well to the saline and aqua environs and are extremely good swimmers. Sunderbans is the largest single block of tidal, halophytic mangrove forest in the world. The aqua fauna of Sunderbans include a variety of fishes, red fiddler crabs, and hermit crabs. The national park is also noted for its conservation of the Ridley Sea Turtle. Also one can spot the endangered River Terrapin, Batagur Baska on the Mechua Beach, while the barking deer is only found on Haliday Island in the Sunderbans.
