Chad: animals

Mammals

Chad can be divided into the following three landscapes from north to south:

- the Sahara

- the Sahel zone

- the Sudan savannah

In the low-precipitation Sahara almost nothing grows and animals are only sporadic.

There is a somewhat greater biodiversity to the south in the Sahel zone, even if it is quite dry here. Mainly grasses and thorn bushes grow here, in between there are isolated standing trees, especially acacias.

In the Sudan savannah in the south of the country, forests grow that cover more than 10% of the country's area, unfortunately they are getting smaller and smaller due to deforestation. There is a special flora and fauna in the Tibesti Mountains. Most animal species are found in the rather humid tropical savannah.

Very different animal species live in the different landscapes of Chad. Few animals are adapted to life in the desert, such as the desert fox - the fennec. The endangered Mendes antelopes and Dama gazelles can only be found in a small region. Dorcas gazelles are more common. Mane jumpers live in the Tibesti Mountains. In addition to cape turtles and spurred turtles, steppe monitors also live in the Sahel, while the Nile monitors are found on the rivers in the southwest of the country. In the southern savannah you can find African wild dogs, buffalos, elephants, cheetahs, giraffes, greater kudu as well as leopards, lions and warthogs. The giant eland live in the border area with the Central African Republic.

Animals in and around Lake Chad

The large number of algae are the food for many fish species in Lake Chad. The approximately 135 species of fish include the up to 2 m long Nile perch, the approximately 1 m long bone-winged fish and the poisonous puffer fish. Numerous species of birds live on the lake and in the wetlands near the shore, and migratory birds rest and winter here.
