Animals in Martinique
Martinique is a beautiful island in the Caribbean sea. French is the official language and the country is part of France and it's therefore part of the European union. This overseas part of France is full of beautiful fauna and exquisite animals. Some of the animals in Martinique are not found anywhere else. One such animal is the Martinique Oriole. This beautiful black bird with reddish-brown undertail, belly and backside is also considered close to endangerment. The whistles of the Martinique Oriole is considered shrill by some bird watches and beautifully unique by many bird lovers.

There are a lot of reptiles that call Martinique home. The Martinique Threadsnake, the Martinique Racer Liophis and the Martinique Lancehead Bothrops are just a few. In this group of animals as well, there are some extinct members as well. The Giant Ameiva and the Martinique Curlytail Lizard are two reptiles that are now extinct, but once roamed Martinique. There is aquatic life unique to Martinique and the Picarel Spicara Martinicus and the Grunt Haemulon Serrula are two of them.

Of course on most islands you'll find insects that are unique to that area and Martinique is no different. There is the walking stick, which can camouflage itself with ease. The Castinia is a giant insect that some call a butterfly and others call a moth. Many describe this as a butterfly-moth. The long horned beetles are in abundance, as are the leaf chafer beetle. There are tarantulas on the island for those who enjoy arachnids. You'll also find lots of crickets on Martinique.
