Armenia's relative uniform geography and small size
make for few meteorological variations. Armenia is most pleasant in either the spring
(April-May) or the fall (autumn, September-November). Summer averages are about
75-80˚ F (25˚ C) and winters sink to an average of about 32˚ F (0˚ C), with the
spring and fall ranging between those two extremes, but winter lows tend to come
and leave quickly, making most of the year more temperate.
Armenia has a good variety of animals, partial due to the
differing elevations. The boar, jackal, bear, goat, sheep, squirrel and other small
mammals exist in different landscapes. Sea life isn't as common as the landlocked
country only looks to rivers and lakes to find these animals.
There are a number of birds that live in Armenia, including
the robin, warbler, and other woodland birds, along with the long-distanced migrating
bird species. The highlands are also home to turkeys, larks, and vultures. There
are also a number of snakes and other reptiles in Armenia, including scorpions.
