Wetlands Animals
Wetlands, whether they be swamps, marshes, bogs, or flood plains, are home to many interesting animals. Some have unusual adaptations that enable them to survive even when the wetland dries up during drought.

You can learn about additional freshwater animals, including insects, in the Aquatic Critters Slide Show.

Animal data and illustrations (except for the Animal Critters Slide Show) come from the Multimedia Animals Encyclopedia.
