Green Grotto Caves - Natural History

Natural History

The caves are home to nine of Jamaica's 21 species of bat including the Big-Eared Bat, the Mustache Bat, and the Jamaican Fruit-Eating Bat. Numbers are quite high with most of the available roosting space used. Guano is present in large amounts but few of the usual guano dwelling inverts have been recorded; the invasive American Roach is found.

The brackish water in the lower levels is full of marine life including small barnacles and various unidentified small swimming creatures.
