It's the mangrove area. Otherwise, this quiz is stating that Cuba is larger than the US.

Couldn't imagine why India wasn't on the list. Below the source article it says that there are 4740 km2 according to a 2015 survey. So it probably should be there even though it is not listed on the source table.

0:56! I really thought Bangladesh would be higher. Indonesia just blew everyone away, I didn't realize it was that prevalent a feature there.

Indonesia spans like from USA east coast to the west coast, there are thousands of islands, lies in the equator so they have warm water which suitable for mangrove to grow rapidly and massively. It's a no brainer to think this of I bet

India is exposed to the Indian Ocean too broad, so the mangrove can't grow with kind of type of water
