    There really isn't a lot of wildlife variety, because the young volcanic landscape hasn't yet developed a very diverse ecosystem. Most of what you'll see are birds and lizards.

    Perhaps the most famous species on Lanzarote (aside from the camels that were introduced by settlers) is the blind crab that lives in the cave of Jameos del Agua:

    Although the animals are not all native to the island, you might be interested in the Guinate Tropical Park:

    Also, here are some general links to the flora and fauna of the island:

    I went to Lanzarote in 2005, it incredibly is a ways nicer than fueteventura! In Lanzarote there at the instant are not any homes allowed over 2 storeys i think of it incredibly is, so there at the instant are not any extensive super lodges. Drove around Costa Teguise it somewhat is incredibly relatively, nicely development clever as Lanzarote is relatively plenty a barren rock! lol good issues to do, Do volcano bypass to bypass to Caesar Milans abode it somewhat is outfitted out of a lava bubble! there is super underground caves etc. As you possibly accrued i do no longer do sunbathing! i could bypass returned to Lanzarote day after today given 0.5 a raffle.
