If you love animals as much as I do you'll love this blog! Every day is a new category of animals. Starting at midnight the category changes. The categories range from areas in the world to different types of animals as well. It will always start off with a fact about the animals in that category and then be followed by images, more facts, and also stories, new events, advice and more. You can also submit photos and information as well!

16 ISLANDS DOMINATED BY WILD ANIMALS:
Tashirojima Island, Japan - Mostly inhabited by cats. The more popular and well known name for this island is in favor of its main inhabitants… This is cat island! Stray cats roam freely and live very happily. They catch mice, birds, bugs and other things but are also fed by many of the people that come by on their boats for fishing. They’ll give the cats the fish heads and pieces of the things they’ve brought onto their boat and have no use for. Most of the cats are very comfortable with the humans and you’d have a hard time believing they’re strays and not someone’s beloved pet! If you ever can’t keep your pet you should fly on down to cat island and drop your pet off in kitty paradise!
Gasparilla Island, Florida —- Mostly inhabited by iguanas. They were brought over by tourists returning from Mexico and unfortunately their population is so great that the island is considering implementing a tax to help rid them of the island. I, personally, find this very ignorant and sad and do not support the decision. Unless the iguanas are causing problems for other wildlife on the island - plants and animals alike, which there currently is no information on, I see no sense in destroying an animal species for the satisfaction of a human. Remember, animals were here before us. It isn’t the animal’s fault they were brought to this island and they should not be punished for the fault of humans. Exuma Island, Bahamas —- Mostly inhabited by pigs. These pigs have become so used to tourists coming here on boat tours that they’ll spot a boat and go out into the water to watch the tourists and to be pet, making them great for photo shoots and in case you feel like petting a wild pig who acts like a very domesticated pet. Ilha De Queimada Grande Island, Brazil —- Mostly inhabited by venomous snakes. Better known as “Snake Island”, this island is home to several types of some of the world’s most venomous snakes. There has never been human inhabitants on this island before because there is an estimated five snakes per square meter! Some snakes could bite you and have you dead within minutes.. if that. Cayo Santiago Island, Puerto Rico —- Mostly inhabited by rhesus monkeys. Also known as “Monkey Island”, there are around 1,200 monkeys that roam freely throguhout this island. There are no humans living on this island. In the 1930’s monkeys were brought here for research and the monkeys living here today are relatives of those monkeys originally here in the 30’s. Christmas Island, Australia —- Mostly inhabited by red crabs. Every single year during the monsoon season, thousands of these little red crabs come to the island to cross it to the land on the other side where they will mate. During this process there are several different roads on the island that are completely shut down while the red sea of crustaceans scuttle across on their journey. The roads will be shut down for several days as well. Assateague Island, Maryland & Virginia —- Mostly inhabited by wild ponies. This place would be heaven for some, including myself. These aren’t actually ponies though, despite being called the wild island ponies, but are actually a type of small shaggy horse. Residents on the island have been calling them ponies since everyone can remember and so now the term has stuck. Many are very used to humans and stroll by within a foot without a care in the world, eat food from your hand and more. Moyenne Island, Seychelles —- Mostly inhabited by giant tortoises. In 1964 a man by the name of Brendon Grimshaw bought the island and he is not the only human inhabitant there. He has introduced 111 giant tortoises and keeps the island to keep these beautiful long living creatures safe from becoming endangered. He refuses to sell to any developers because he does not want any harm to come to the tortoises or this beautiful land either. Runde Island, Norway —- Mostly inhabited by puffins. These beautiful brightly colored birds are unfortunately threatened because of people that have hunted them and also by things such as over building - imagine that, us humans over building! There are around 100,000 puffins that live here on this island. They are both protected and studied here by the Runde Environmental Center. Ramree Island, Burma —- Mostly inhabited by saltwater crocodiles. There’s a legend that during World War II a group of 1,000 Japanese soldiers came to the marshes of the island to hide out while they were waiting for more troops to arrive. Little did they know that the largest population on the island was saltwater crocodiles. Very happy with the opportunity that presented itself, the crocodiles didn’t wait long to begin their feast. It’s said that only about twenty soldiers survived the attack. Seal Island, South Africa —- Mostly inhabited by seals. Just in case you couldn’t guess it, the island is largely populated by seals and because of the mass population of them, this is also a great spot to go if you’re looking to see Great White Sharks. It’s the only place in the entire world where great white sharks have ever been seen leaping out from under the water and into the air to capture one of the swimming seals. You can actually take tours here and either just stay above on the boat and check out the view of the many seals and hope to see a shark in action, or you can go down in a shark cage! Okunoshima Island, Japan —- Mostly inhabited by rabbits. The name of this island, to us/me, is actually rabbit island. This used to be the home of a factory that created posion, which is now thankfully closed down. There are a lot of rumors that surround this rabbit infested island. Some say that school children had come here and released eight rabbits and that number rose very quickly considering they were able to roam and mingle with one another. The other rumor, and probably the more likely of the two - as unfortunate as it is to say, is that the poison factory used them for testing and released them upon closing their doors for good. Hilton Head Island, South Carolina —- Mostly inhabited by loggerhead turtles. Every single year hundreds of loggerhead turtles will swim up to the shores of this island and lay their many eggs within the sand. Sixty days later and the eggs will hatch and the adorable little babies will make their way from the shore to the sea to begin their lives. People flock from all over to see this beautiful show provided by nature and Mother Earth. The sea turtles are used to it and pay no attention to the gawking humans. South Georgia Island, Atlantic Ocean —- Mostly inhabited by king penguins. Not inhabited by much else really, king penguins come here and thrive here. It’s extremely cold as all atlantic areas are and so during the coldest parts of the year the penguins will form one large circle. The youngest will be in the very center to keep them warm and give them a much better chance of survival. The others will rotate inward and outward so that each penguin gets a chance to warm up and then a chance to be on the outside, protecting the others. Balls Pyramid Island, Pacific Ocean —- Mostly inhabited by the lord howe island stick insect. Well isn’t that name a mouthful? And what’s up with the name of the island? Things are getting a little bit strange with this one. And it gets even better! The stick bug mentioned with its mouthful of a name has a nickname and is also sometimes called the walking sausages. These interesting creatures were believed to have gone extinct until found here. They were found because scientists wanted to check the island out, thinking there was really no form of life living here. They were very wrong though and discovered the island to be swarming with these stick bugs! Morgan’s Island, South Carolina —- Mostly inhabited by monkeys. This is the second SC one on this list, but this island is inhabited by something completely different.. monkeys! What’s sad about this is that many of the human inhabitants on this small island have no idea there are so many monkeys living here within the trees. The reason being that those who operate the island’s activity are breeding these intelligent and human-like creatures to be used as test subjects!! More people need to be aware that things like this are still going on and worse being that it’s still going on here in the United States. You’d think we’d be passed these barbaric acts but that is so far from the truth; just as it’s so far from the truth that the government and large organizations don’t lie to us and keep secrets - like the one on this island is doing.

A FACT ABOUT EUROPEAN ANIMALS ;  The existence of breed is very old. One school of thought states that these horses have been in existence since pre-historic times. The origins of this breed are not very well known. Many believe that these horses descended from an extinct horse called Soutre that was found in the southeast region of France. Celts, Franks, Romans, Greeks, Moors and many more people settled in this region of France and all the horses they brought along with them has played a part in the development of this breed. Today, however, this breed is well protected and cared for. To preserve the purity of this breed, the French government set up the breed standards in 1976. In the year 1978, the first stud book was released for this breed. The gardians are people who are responsible for branding, annual inspection and gelding of stock that is not suitable. | animal blog
