Wildlife in Asia

We have chosen to focus on seven Asian countries based on the wildlife they offer to nature enthusiasts, but we are sure the list will keep growing to capture the true vastness of the continent’s natural wonders!



Sharks enjoy the Maldives because of its excellent seas and food. Scuba divers in the Maldives often swim alongside reef sharks, which are beautiful yet harmless.


You will find different categories of turtles, endemic to the wildlife in the Maldives, including Green turtles, leatherback turtle, hawksbill turtle, and many more.


Asiatic elephant

The Asian elephant is the largest of all mammals in Nepal today. Its shoulder height varies from 2.5 to 3m, and a male elephant can weigh up to 5,000 kg! Elephants have an excellent memory and a long lifespan, similar to that of humans.

one-horned rhinoceros

The Indian rhinoceros, or bigger one-horned rhinoceros, is a grey monster second only to an elephant. Only South Asia and Southeast Asia have bigger one-horned rhinoceros.

Royal Bengal Tiger

Tigers are the biggest and most charismatic Asian big cats. Tigers have slender black, brown, or gray stripes. Tiger stripes are unique, making them easy to identify.
