Fiji Flora and Fauna

The Fiji Flora and Fauna

Fiji's flora and fauna. It has more than three hundred islands, four of which are of significant size. Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Kadavu Island and Taveuni Island are the largest to the smallest of these four islands. Fiji is home to numerous native flora and fauna. Fiji's flora consists of hardwood trees, mangroves, bamboo and palm trees.


Fiji's flora consists of hard wood and mangrove woods, bamboos and palm groves. Its fauna consists of indigenous animals such as bat, skink, iguana and gecko. It has about 162 bird populations, including eagle oaks, falcons and macaws. Also in Fiji you can often find serpents and beasts.

Fiji's only indigenous animal is the elusive flies. They are 6 types, 3 of which are mouses. The Polynesian Flying Fox is the most visible of the three types of mice. It' s usual to see large buffalo flies flying over the area in the early evenings, especially when the mongoose tree is mature with fruits, although they are quite hard to film!

The echolocalization capacity of fruiting shamrocks is not limited to their large eye size, which is suitable for night sight and an outstanding olfactory sensation. In the evenings, visitors who sit on the cockpit often listen to what sound like "bat clicks". Twenty-seven reptile varieties exist, 8 of which are Fiji-indemic.

Iguana, 12 skink, 10 gecko and 3 snake. It' s a little mysterious how Lizards came to Fiji. In the Galapagos there are two types and both are more related to the Central American Iguans than to the Galapagos Islands' Iguans. You can see these little skins sunbathing in the daytime, but when you get close to them, they scurry away.

Frequent types in the area around the resorts are the skink and the bluetail skink. Once I sat around a cava cup with some of the dive masters and bargemen in the head burette. Two giant, powerful Filipino dive masters had turned fully whitened in no time, a third had moved to the other end of the room and the forth was walking along the central trail at full velocity without ever halting.

In the Fiji group there are three kinds of snakes. Laticauda Colubrina (5 kinds - most frequently is Laticauda Colubrina) This lake serpent is often found by scuba diver, who sometimes plays with the beast. This poison is more infectious than any known landsnake, although it is similar to the poison of the cobra.

However, there is one kind that can be violent when provoke. Hydrophies falanocephalus is relatively uncommon, but there was a deadly sting in Fiji. Unlike a white/yellow brow, Hydrophis has no large abdominal flakes and never comes ashore where it would be powerless.

Laticauda has large abdominal flakes and can therefore come ashore to put its small nest of 5 to 10 balls. Occasional reports of seagoing snake in the shoals are reported by visitors to the area, but the seaweed is populated by a small, innocuous brown coral that imitates the colour of the bandage.

On occasion al visits to the resort's property, you'll probably have to go for a stroll in the outback to find one of these little buas. Those furry country shrimps like nothing better than driving around at nights after a slight shower of rains. One of the only proofs you will probably see from the country shrimps is their many caves along the front of the area.

And if you are hearing a rustle of foliage outside of your burette as you float away to bed, its almost certainly a country crab out for its nocturnal lining. There are relatively no strange-looking beetles on the reserve's central area, but if you fancy a little snagging tomology, a quick stroll in the scrub will soon turn your eye-catch.

Numerous moths are fluttering across the area. Her complicated designs are usually very beautiful and well discernible.... until they touch down. But there are some kinds of big spiders here, unless you are studying the high treetops, then you don't see them.
