Arrow Fun Facts About Caribbean Wildlife

You may or may not agree with some of all of the following, you may add some more to the list, so let's start counting some of these fun facts

Did you know…

Residents of colonial Cuba could be punished for insulting the Cuban Trogon, a red-breasted bird whose plumage was seen as representing the red sash worn by Spanish kings.

Ackee with salt fish is Jamaica’s national dish, but the fruit can be highly poisonous if harvested or cooked incorrectly

The earliest attempt to import breadfruit into the Caribbean was thwarted by a famous mutiny — the one on the H.M.S. Bounty, which was carrying the seedlings among its cargo.

You can tell which way the wind blows on a given island by looking at the coconut palm trees, which often leans in the direction of the prevailing breeze.

The Caribbean is home to dozens of species of bats, about half of which are endemic to the islands.

The Red Junglefowl found in the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and the Grenadines is actually the feral offspring of formerly domesticated roosters and chickens.

Crocodiles are native to Cuba, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, and Haiti.
Barracudas have been known to attack divers wearing sparkly clothing, which they can mistake for prey.

The black grouper can grow to four feet long and change its sex from female to male.

The Caribbean spiny lobster can swim backwards by flipping its tail.


These facts where compiled by Jessica Pellien for the Princeton University Press Blog, based on "Caribbean Travel’s review of Wildlife of the Caribbean" an article published by About.com

Any other fact someone wants to add below?

Interesting. Well I would think twice about trying out the National dish, it may not be worth my while! Amazing how so many facts are interelated with other events, like what took place on the HMS Bounty, and we are completely unaware of them.

Agree with you, there are many interrelated events I was not aware of until reading the article and began to do a kind of flashback exercise to find many other things in common in the Caribbean region, not just wildlife but folklore and more.

Oh, I didn't know that!

No doubt there are many interesting wildlife species in your region that I never knew before coming here.
