Wildlife In The Maldives
When most people would expect a tropical paradise to comprise a large assortment of land animals, this just isn’t true of the Maldives Hotels . There are a variety of different bats, most memorable of which are the huge fruit bats that roost in the trees at night. Additionally, there are many species of lizard and gecko that are fairly ubiquitous and may be seen crawling on many walls and even ceilings.
There’s one important point to make about the land animals in the Maldives, which is that they’re relatively safe. There are hardly any animals that will do you damage, and even mosquitoes are rare. There are ants centipedes and even scorpions, but these are not a problem if you don’t move about intentionally annoying them.
There are as can be expected a high number of seabirds, the majority of which are migratory or introduced since the land mass in the Maldives is just not large enough to support large populations of several distinct sресіеs.
