Learn More About The Mangrove Tree Drawing

Mangroves or Avicennia are unique trees that live in tropical regions around the world. You can make a mangrove tree drawing with the help of this easy, step-by-step plant drawing tutorial.

Avicennia grows in thickets in muddy coastal areas. Unlike other trees, they can survive floods and high water!

This is due to their unusual roots. Mangroves are a border between the land and sea, saltwater and freshwater. This makes for a very diverse habitat with lots of animals.

Challenge: Can you draw a swampy scene by placing many of these mangrove trees in the same picture? What animals live in mangrove swamps?

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

Depending on the part of the world the mangrove forest is located in, you might find the following animals living in the trees or the water around their roots:

  • Monkeys
  • Alligators or crocodiles
  • Crabs
  • Fish
  • Sea cows
  • Snakes
  • Shore birds
  • And many others!

How many of these species will live in your mangrove cartoon?
