Red Mangrove

Rhizophora mangle

Description:

Recognizable by their aerial prop roots, which arch above the water level. Red Mangrove thickets provide nesting and hunting habitat for a diverse array of organisms, including fish, birds, and crocodiles. Through stabilization of their surroundings, mangroves create a community for other plants and animals such as the mangrove crab.

Habitat:

They thrive on coastlines in brackish water and in swampy salt marshes. The ones in my spotting were seen on a salt river.
