the Green Monkey
These have golden-green fur and pale hands and feet. The tip of a green monkey's tail, along with its cheek whiskers and the backs of its thighs, is golden yellow. Green monkeys are very social animals and live in groups.
This has a row of spines called a dewlap running down its back to its tail. It has a tiny "third eye" known as the parietal eye on its head; however, this can only sense brightness and cannot make out details. Iguanas have very good eyesight. They tend to blend into their surroundings and can be hard to spot.
Also spelled cayman, these are small sized crocidilians, distinguished from alligators by a few features, such as relatively longer, more slender teeth and the lack of a bony septum between their nostrils.
Parrots come in a variety of bright colours. They usually spend their time perched or climbing in tree canopies and often use their beaks for climbing to grip branches.
Although generally referred to as peacocks, these beautiful birds are actually called peafowl. Only the males are peacocks, while the females are peahens. The tail or train consists not of tail quill feathers, but of highly elongated upper tail coverts.
Their shells are used to shield them from predators, and consist of the carapace, which is the top part, and the plastron, which is the underside. These are connected by the bridge. The carapace is fused to the vertebrae and ribcage.
the Brocket Deer
These are small to medium sized deer with large ears and stout bodies. When present, antlers are small, simple spikes. The Brocket deer's fur varies from reddish to brown to gray.
Many species of snakes have skulls with several joints, enabling them to swallow prey much larger than their heads with their highly mobile jaws. To accommodate their narrow bodies, snakes' paired organs appear one in front of the other instead of side by side, and most have only one functional lung.
Among the animals found at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve are:
This is a large relative of the guinea pig and can be described as a long legged rabbit. They have stocky bodies. Their fur is usually brown and they have white bellies.
