After the modern development, Niger's habitat of swamps. savannas, tropical forests and mountain plateaus take care of many animals. But as time goes on, these habitats have disappeared because of expansion of farmland and population growth.
Animals in Niger can be from the desert habitat and then also home habitats. Nigerian animals have other uses. A camel, for instant, is used to carry goods and families from place to place. On the other hand, a dog that is professionally trained can be a security guard in personal houses and banks, and can also be used as house pets along with cats. Some are used for comic displays and jokes, such as the monkey.
Then there are those animals like the wild dog that are used for food or for their meat. Squirrel, rabbit, crocodile and antelope are other animals that are also eaten at restaurants as well as at home for food.
Along with the dog and the cat, there are chameleons, which are friendly and also harmless, and can be seen in many parts of Niger. There are also snakes that slither through the country, the Green Snake, the Python and the Anaconda, even though scarce can be seen in Niger's many places.
Out of all the Nigerian animals, the monkey is the most fun and entertaining. Monkeys can be trained to do many acrobatics and dance routines and moves. They can be trained to do routines to music and tumble to the rhythm.
