They are many animals living among us which an unknown to us. In which some animals are nocturnal that’s why we don't know them. Like Porcupine which lives near human habitat but as they only come out at night so we are not familiar with them. I saw this animal in Lahore zoo and was able to capture some close photos.

Otters are water animals and have 13 species in which one species is found in Pakistan. The Smooth-coated otter is found along the Indus River in Sindh. During my visit to Lahore Zoo, I saw some otters living there. They are very beautiful and active. Also very unusual to see.

In Pakistan, black bears and brown bears are found but the Sloth bear is not common. The sloth bear is native to the subcontinent. The sloth bear eats fruit, ants, and termites. They are listed in IUCN Red List, mainly because of habitat loss.

Kangaroo is found in Australia. I saw some Kangaroo in the zoo and they are very unique animals. Kangaroos have large hind legs and large feet and they hop. They also have a long muscular tail for balance.

The llama is also unique for us but in South America they are common. They are used as domestic animals and are used as meat and wool sources as their wool is very soft.
