Abstract
The main objective of the study is to review the practices of Zootherapy among the ethnic groups of the northeastern part of India and to prepare an
inventory of all the information. The data were collected from 11 published papers on the practices of zootherapy among different ethnic groups from
the region. All the papers were published in the years 2002-2016. A total of 221 animals species are used by 19 ethnic groups from the region. Mammals

species are-77 species of Mammals (34.84%) followed by 65 species of Arthropods (29.41%), 24 species of Aves (10.85%), 22 species of Pisces (9.95%),
18 species of Reptiles (8.14%), 6 species of Annelids (2.71%), 5 species of Amphibians (2.26%) and 4 species of Molluscs (1.80%). The most commonly
