2 Rare Animals In Nigeria That Have Been Seen In Rivers State This September, And What FG Should Do

Nigeria is a country that is blessed with many great animals, including some animals that you'll hardly find in other parts of West Africa.

In this article, we'll be looking at two rare animals in Nigeria that has been seen in Rivers State this September.

1. Elephant

Even though there are elephants in West Africa, they're hardly seen because they live deep inside the forest. But this September, an Elephant was sighted in Rivers State.

It was gathered that the Elephant came out from the bushes on the 21st of September 2021, in Andoni Local Government Area of the state, but it went back into the bushes after a while. Click Here To Watch the Video.

This is not the first time an Elephant has been seen in Andoni LGA this year, it was seen in July but it didn't waste much time outside the bushes.

2. Trygon Fish

According to a report from BBC Pidgin, this fish was captured by a fisherman in Andoni this September, just a few days after an elephant was reportedly sighted in the local government area.

Even though this fish is said to be in some Nigeria Rivers, It is not the kind of fish fishermen come across every because this fish spends most of its time partially buried in the sand beneath the river, and they often moving only with the sway of the tide.


Both the Elephant and Trygon fish are very rare animals in Nigeria, this is why the government should do everything in its power to protect them. At least to ensure that future generations enjoy our natural world and the incredible species that live within it. Many animals are no longer in existence because they weren't protected.

Judging from the kind of animals that have been seen in Andoni local government area of Rivers State, the place is naturally blessed with great animals that can attract tourists, the government should consider investing in the area.
