Granitic Seychelles forests

WWF Abstract

The Granitic Seychelles Forests are home to an amazing array of plants and animals. Palm and pandan trees, tree-ferns, mosses, jellyfish trees, chameleons, and pitcher plants are just some of the treasures you will find here. Early explorers to the Vallee de Mai on Praslin Island, which provides the best example of intact native forest in the Seychelles, found the area to be so beautiful that they believed they had found the Garden of Eden. They also found a giant species of land tortoise, which was hunted for food in such large numbers that it was soon driven to extinction.
