OGATT: The Online Guide to the Animals of Trinidad and Tobago

 

Index

The accounts are organized by common name for accessibility, including multiple entries under alternative names where useful. Common names may be found from scientific names in the taxonomic listing above. Endemic species (E) are those that are only found in Trinidad and Tobago. Introduced or invasive species (I) are those with breeding populations in the wild that are not native to Trinidad and Tobago. Accidental or occasional visitors (A) are species that may naturally occur as individuals in Trinidad and Tobago or its offshore waters but do not form breeding populations or regular migrations. Dangerously venomous species (V) and those which may cause severe stings (S) to humans are also indicated.
