The two most famous mammals are the big Indian elephant
and the beautiful tiger, which was threatened of becoming extinct for a long time. But now the existence can recover again, since protection devices were built.
Indias bird world with over 1200 native kinds – that is more than in Euroope – is extremely various. The national bird is the peacock.
Monkeys are also very important to India. Rhesus monkes are considered as holy to the Hindus, they may not be troubled and therefore they also live in cities.
