Cuban Wildlife

Cuban wildlife is a little bit elusive since one has to go to the right spots in order to find something. Our right spot war the Pinar del Rio Province which also grows the famous tobacco which is the basis for the Cuban cigar industry.

Cuba does not harbour dangerous wildlife. There are no large mammals and what one sees most are birds and small reptiles. The birds are colourful and most of the live on several of the Caribbean islands an even in Florida.

West Indian Woodpecker

La Sagra’s Flycatcher (they call it the Cuban Flycatcher)

The ubiquitous Turkey Vulture

There are many other bird species but unfortunately our time was very limited.

The typical reptiles of Cuba are the anoles

The Cuban Knight Anole

and the Brown Anole

That’s it for the moment as soon as I get back to the island I promise I will be more successful.
