Much of the mangrove community comprises organisms of terrestrial origin. Epiphytic and parasitic plants are common. The animal species of mangroves include insects, many of which—leaf-eating herbivores, termites—are of major ecological importance. Mangrove vertebrates include amphibians (the crab-eating frog), reptiles (snakes, monitor lizards, crocodiles), birds (often in large numbers), and mammals (otters, monkeys, bats, domestic animals).

Keywords:   mangrove animals, mangrove-associated plants, epiphyte, herbivory, insects, amphibian, reptile, bird, mammal, faunal composition
