Animals in Croatia
Croatia is located in South Eastern Europe, and is home to many lakes that are famous for their bright colors due to the mineral deposits within the lakes. This country has an extremely diverse terrain, including wooded mountains, plains, rolling hills, lakes, and a very rocky coastline. This provides for a wide variety of wildlife that call Croatia home.

One of the most beautiful animals that call the country home is the wolf. In recent years their numbers dramatically decreased. There are many reasons for their unfortunate decrease. Most of these reasons are human related and maybe the number one reason is the simple fact that wolfs has long had a bad reputation which has led to their slaughter. In recent years the wolf has been protected by Croatian law which is helping to bring the creature back from the verge of extinction. Another unique animal that is native to Croatia is the Grey Dolphin. This wonderful and much loved animal is found on the coastline of Croatia. Grey Dolphins live in groups and can vary in numbers living in each group starting at about 3 up to around 50. This specific species of dolphins tend stay away from boats but some of the juvenile grey dolphins can be seen swimming along side. Maybe the most unique and beautiful creature living in Croatia is the
