What animals live in the Tropic of Cancer?
The Tropic of Cancer passes through many countries and continents, including Africa, Asia, South/Central America. Because of it's wide and diverse stretch, many different types of animals exist in its reaches. In its more tropical regions, hummingbirds, monkeys, snakes, frogs, and sloths are some commonly found animals. In its dryer climates, like the Sahara, camels, goats, foxes, gazelles, and lizards are frequently found. The animal life on the Tropic of Cancer is highly diverse, reflecting the many locations that this imaginary line passes through.
The Tropic of Cancer gets its name from the constellation Cancer. When the Sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, it is in the constellation of Cancer, or at least it was back when the Tropic of Cancer was named. The seasons and constellations drift over time, if it were named today it would be the Tropic of Gemini.
