Not sure what a Red Mangrove Tree looks like? It's the one locals sometimes call the "walking tree" because it has "prop" roots to hold it up in the water. Mangroves are special because they are the only tree species that can grow fully in salt water. Red Mangroves are even more special because their roots provide rich marine habitat since they are submerged in sea water.
