Fauna & Fungi of the Maltese Islands
Introduction Malta Fauna Website:
MaltaFauna.com is an additional section of MaltaWildPlants.com displaying some of the animal and mushroom biodiversity of the wild life of the Maltese Islands. There are about 7,000-8,000 species belonging to the Animals and Funghi Kingdoms in the Maltese Islands, most of them being Insects (5000 c.) Molluscs (1000 c.) and Funghi (400 spp. c.). Only a small proportion are reptiles, mammals or amphibians, although fossils suggest that in the distant past, there were numerous mammals and reptiles on our unspoiled land. In this webpage, you can find a very small selection of the fauna and funghi found on the Maltese islands represented by a couple of photos and basic information such as names, classification and short descriptions

This page was created in 2005 to celebrate the 3rd year of this website (MaltaWildplants.com), which was launched back on 31st October 2002. Nowadays it features few hundreds of species and gradually more are added. MaltaFauna.com is currently authored by Stephen Mifsud and Thomas Cassar who dedicate their time voluntarily to maintain and increase the content of this website.
