Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians & Fish of Gibraltar Reserve

 

These lists are incomplete and are periodically updated as new species are recorded for the reserve. The status of many Bats & Skinks remains unknown, with future discoveries likely to identify several further species.

In 2012, Eastern Chestnut Mouse was discovered, identifying a new population of this Threatened Species, which is not yet recorded in the adjacent National Parks. The presence of several mammals not yet recorded is considered likely.
