Marsh and Swamp wildlife

The salt and freshwater wet lands of the world provide some of nature's finest havens for wildlife. The areas where shallow, still, or slow moving water mingles with the emergent vegetation are commonly called marshes or swamps, and act as crossroads between land and aquatic habitats. The animals that live here are adapted to exploit food opportunities, avoid danger, move around easily in their habitat, and cope with the changes in water levels. Saltwater wetlands undergo daily changes in water level with the ebb and flow of the tides, whereas freshwater wetlands undergo changes throughout the year as water level rise and fall, and some even dry out completely.
