A swamp is a wetland that is forested. Many swamps occur along large rivers where they are critically dependent upon natural water level fluctuations. Usually you would hear crickets and other insects and animals. In a swamp it is very humid from the water and the sun. Other swamps occur on the shores of large lakes. There are two major classes of swamps, depending on the type of vegetation, the two are shrub swamps and forested swamps. Shrub swamps are found in Northern and Southern Florida while the Mangrove swamp is a type of shrub swamp found typically in southern Florida. There are three endangered species in swamps that are the Florida panther, wood stork, and the southern bald eagle. The reason why the florida panther is endangered because of habitat loss. The wood stork is endangered because of pollution. The southern bald eagle is endangered because of pesticides. The interesting about our ecosystem is how the animals work together example, the alligator opens its mouth and a bird come is and cleans it.
