Cuban cactus scrub

WWF Abstract

On the flat, southeastern tip of Cuba lies a dry area filled with cacti and succulent plants, including some endemic species. A visit to this ecoregion would keep a bird lover busy--the region supports a variety of bird life, including the Cuban vireo and the Zapata sparrow. Anoles, iguanas, and other lizards fill specific niches and habitat types here.
