There were many ducks and geese. The people who lived in ancient Egypt had tame (domesticated) animals as well.
Some of these animals were useful for farming or transporting things, like donkeys, camels, dogs, pigs, cattle, and sheep and goats.
The animals in Egypt live in the water as well as on land. Water-dwelling organisms include the hippopotamus, several types of water snakes, fish, frogs and some types of lizards. There are several types of poisonous snakes in Egypt, including multiple species of vipers and the Egyptian cobra, which reside in the fertile agricultural areas in river valleys of the Nile River.
Crocodiles and alligators are also found in rivers and streams while other animals, such as scorpions, the Dorac gazelle, and small rodents prefer to live in the dry and hot Western Desert region. The largest wild animal in Egypt is the aoudad, which is a type of sheep that also resides in the Western Desert, along with the Egyptian jackal, fennec, and the Nubian ibex. Others, such as the hyrax, live high in the Sinai mountains.
