As a result, several species have become extinct and many more are endangered. 

Invertebrate animals 

There are about one thousand species of vertebrates recorded so far in Bangladesh. 16 species of bees have been found. Their class is the bee which consists of 11 species. The rest include 4 bees, 2 bumblebees and only the stingless bee species Trigona fuscalatiata .

There are many species of fresh and marine freshwater crabs, shrimps and lobsters in Bangladesh. 4 species of freshwater and 11 species of sea crabs have been discovered. The most commercially exploited species in the coastal region is the Cycla serrat (soil crab). At least two species of King Crab are found in coastal areas. About 10 species of freshwater shrimp and 19 species of marine shrimp were collected. Six species of lobsters are found to occur in the Bay of Bengal , Panulirus polyphagus and Thenus orientalis being the two most commercially important species. Two species of the freshwater genus Starfish have also been recorded out of 20 Daphnia copepod species. 



Includes about 1,700 species of vertebrates. Fish contain the largest number of species among them. Of the 707 species of fish, 442 are marine and rest are freshwater and freshwater . Marine fish are divided into 18 orders and 123 families. Their species includes 56 cartilaginous fish and 38 bone marrow . There are 71 families of 28 species of domestic fish.

So far, most of the animals have become extinct in Bangladesh and another 201 species are under threat. This Ramakutta is also called the wild dog of Asia. This species is now endangered by the loss of habitat and prey animals and human cruelty . Notable animal species that have become extinct in Bangladesh are the large single-horned rhinoceros , the Asian two-horned rhinoceros , the gaur , the bonteng, the marine deer , the nilgai , the Indian wolf, the wild water buffalo , the marsh crocodile and the common flower. The majority of the human population lives in or around large cities and this has helped to limit some forestry. However, its growth rate is steadily increasing and this has created greater demand on the environment and subsequently led to the clearing of numerous natural habitats. Although several areas are protected under the law, a large portion of Bangladeshi wildlife is under threat as a result of this increase.

In 2016, conservationists surveyed in the far-flung, little-known Chittagong Hill Tracts region of Bangladesh photographed the country's first sun bear and gaur . In addition, the team captured images of Himalayan sero, Asian golden cat , sambar deer , barring deer, cheetah cat and ramkutta . Locals in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, led by conservationists, led a new population of Arakan forest turtles. Once extinct, critically endangered species were only captured for survival in neighboring Myanmar.
