(4) Do you know about sailfish ? Considered the fastest fish in the ocean, its speed is as much as that of a running cheetah, the fastest land animal. This speed is facilitated by its hydrodynamic shape, a giant dorsal fin and a long, pointy nose.

In this forest a numerous wildlife species exist - birds, reptiles, fishes, amphibians and also the king of the forest "Royal Bengal Tiger".
