|There is a super-abundance of marine invertebrates in the waters off the islands, including many crab species, corals, jellyfish and sponges. This makes the islands a delight for snorkelling and diving.|
There are 70+ species of Spider in the Seychelles.
|Reptiles are represented by:
3 land snakes (harmless)
1 sea-snake (highly venomous, but very rarely seen.)
||There are several species of mudskipper. They can live in the inter-tidal zone for some time, using their pectoral fins as legs. Their high eyes are excellent for spotting danger, when they will quickly skip back to the water.|
