Plants and animals that thrive in temperate climates are found in the Netherlands. The most common trees are oak, elm, pine, linden, and beech. The country is famous for its flowers, both cultivated varieties (best known among them the Dutch tulip) and wild flowers such as daisies, buttercups, and the purple heather that blooms on the heaths in September. Birds are those characteristic of Western and Central Europe, with large numbers of seagulls swarming over the coastal areas from time to time. Many kinds of fish abound along the North Sea coast and in the lakes and rivers. Wild or large animals are practically nonexistent.
As for animals, Wikipedia has a list
Holland is in the central-western part of the Netherlands with a population of 6.1 million people. Holland is a former county of the Holy Roman Empire, ruled by the Count of Holland, and later became a very significant province of the Republic of the Seven United Provinces. The cities of Holland are epitome of beauty. Be it Amsterdam, Hague, Rotterdam, travelers who rush mesmerized to these beauties and enjoy the beaches.
Holland is also the land of diverse flora and fauna. In fact, Holland Lop rabbit is one of the rare and most sort after animal. Many houses in the countryside keep them as pets in their fieldsSource(s): http://www.nationsencyclopedia.com/Europe/Netherla... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Fauna_of_the... http://www.flickr.com/photos/toni_uni/sets/7215761... http://www.petrelocation.com/animals-holland-amste...
