Mauritius: Wildlife

Mauritius didn't surprise us with its wildlife as much as we probably expected. It's a green and nice island overall but you won't find monkeys on the trees or lots of tropical fruit all over. Here's what we saw there: 

little crabs

a huge spider (but only one!)  Somebody told us there weren't any big spiders in Mauritius.  Maybe they are rare.  It was kind of neat to see, but we were glad this was the only big spider we saw.  We should have put something in for scale -- it's about as big as a person's palm.

Pretty cool things. I wish we had seen bunnies :-)

Nice photos of Mauritius. The spider and the yellow fish are amazing.

There are a lot of bunnies near la mourne beach after dark. Think they like the grass of the golf course at night.
