Here is the list of 20 endemic animal species found only in Northeastern part of India. NorthEast India is the hub of plant and animal species. Some of the species so rare that they only found in this part of the world. In this list, we have included from fishes to amphibians to reptiles to mammals.

NorthEast India includes the seven states(Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura) also called as seven sisters. As the region is perched with lots of mountains and rivers, makes a superb habitat for animals. A lot of species got loss in the past due to constant poaching.
