Interesting animals on the island
The good news: there are no poisonous animals on La Palma. The animal life is not so varied. La Palma does not have any large free running mammals. Farm animals include the goat, which provides a very special goat’s cheese and a typical Palma breed of dog: the Pastor Garafiano. Another typical animal is the Lagartos, a pretty type of lizard with azure blue markings. Many song birds, falcons, chough and tame ravens, which really do eat out of your hand, are also to be found among the fauna of La Palma. The animal world in the ocean around the islands is very rich. This includes pilot whales, sharks and dolphins, as well as many species of fish, squid, prawns and lobster.
