St Vincent wildlife (including the Grenadines wildlife)

Unfortunately the St Vincent wildlife has been affected over the years by numerous volcano eruptions as well as deforestation.

The wildlife you will see in the region includes the Lesser Antillean whistling frog, cane toad, lizards and geckos, tree anole, and the common iguana. There are also a few species of bat.
