Geography Of India
The reason why India is called "a subcontinent" is because of the the Bay of Bengal, the Arabian Sea, the Hindu Kush Mountains and last but not least (since it is way taller than all of them) Mt. Everest/the Himalayas.
One the most known part of India are the Himalayas and in it the Mt. Everest; one of the most known things about Mt. Everest are how much money people spend on climbing.

The Indian black bear occupies a narrow band from southeastern Iran through Afghanistan and Pakistan, across the foothills of the Himalayas, to Myanmar. It is found in all countries in mainland Southeast Asia except Malaysia, the Indian black bear has a patchy distribution in Southern China.
The Blue Bull-Nilgai is most likely the least known animal in India. The mature males look ox-like and is known as the blue bull. A blue bull is called a nil gal or nilgai in India, from the "nil" meaning "blue" and the "gai" meaning literally "cow". It is found in parts of southern Nepal and eastern Pakistan. The species is now extinct in Bangladesh.
