Fauna and Flora in Guadeloupe
Animals in Guadeloupe
In comparison to other tropical countries, the variety of the animal life in Guadeloupe is limited. That is not too bad, because there are also no poisonous and dangerous animals (mosquitos and scolopendra are the most aggressive ones).
The variety of animals of former days fell victim first to arrows of the Indians, then to the guns of the colonists and last but not least to the import of the mongoose supposed to kill the snakes.
They indeed killed the snakes, but at the same time several other species, for example the parrots.
In addition, there are millions of frogs and toads, invisible during the day, but with voices you can't miss as soon as it is getting dark.
