St. Vincent & the Grenadines has
an odd wildlife system as the island nation has few indigenous mammals due to its
volcanic origin; nearly all mammals you see on the islands were introduced by people.
However, off the island's shore are more mammals and great sea life. In addition
to mammals like dolphins and whales, as an island nation there are thousands of
fish surrounding the country and these waters contain larger animals like sharks
and barracudas, but also include lobsters, angelfish, grouper, sponges, lobsters,
snapper, crabs, and thousands more including coral.
Like the sea life, there are plenty of birds that live on the island or migrate
through. These birds are mostly limited to water fowls like ducks and herons, but
there are other non-water fowl species that call the islands home such as the trembler,
hummingbird, and bananaquit. The reptilian and amphibian life is also limited in
scope, but there are turtles, snakes, iguanas, and frogs among others. There are
numerous other species, including insects.
