Ìndia?
2. What is the pop:lation of Ìndia?
3. What are some kinds of plants in Ìndia?
Ìndian Plants
- ` In northern India, people ate mainly wheat, baked into Ilat bread and cooked into
porridge. But in southern India, people mainly ate rice. So those were the two main
things that people grew.
Many diIIerent kinds oI plants also grew wild. There were bananas, mangoes, and
pomegranates. India was also known Ior its spices, especially cinnamon. And tea also
grew in India.

Ìndian Peafowl
1. The male Indian Peafowl, commonly known as the peacock, is one of the
most recognizable birds in the world. These large, brightly colored birds have
a recognizable crest and an unmistakable pretty train. The train (1.4-1.6
meters in length) accounts for more than 60% of their total body length (2.3
meters). Combined with a large wingspan (1.4-1.6 meters), this train makes
the male peafowl one of the largest flying birds in the world. The train is
formed by 100-150 highly specialized upper tail-coverts. Each of these
feathers sports a blue-green eye-spot, and has long disintegrated barbs,
giving the feathers a loose, fluffy appearance. When displaying to a female,
the peacock erects this train into a spectacular fan, showing off the eye spots
to their best advantage.
Bengal Tiger
- Bengal tigers are also called Indian tigers, they are the most
numerous in population than any other tiger subspecies. They were
killed for sport carried out by Indian and British kings and queens.
These cats´ number declined at a fast rate. They are one of the only
two species of cats that like water. At full running speed they reach
speed of up to 60 kilometers per hour. They do not have great
stamina. The average Bengal tiger sleeps between 16 to 18 hours.
Ìndian Leopards
eopards have an elongate and muscular body. Their paws are broad and
their ears are short. In tropical areas their coats tend to be shorter and sleeker,
whereas in colder climates their fur is longer and denser. The coloration varies
from the color of straw to grayish to even chestnut. The backs of the ears are
black except for a spot either located centrally or near the tips. These appear to
other animals as eyes. The throat, chest, belly, and the insides of the limbs are
white. The rest of the head, throat, chest, and limbs all have small black spots.
The belly has larger black spots, almost like blotches. Region and habitat have
an affect on the appearance of P. pardus .
Bed time!
