Cuba has a variety of animals that can be seen on the coasts and out in the valleys. Crabs and lizards were most plentiful and could be found in all kinds of locations.

Cuba is a place where many green sea turtles return to lay their eggs. You can tell a turtle has been there by looking for tracks (like above right) in the sand on the beach. You can usually follow the tracks to a nesting hole. Sometimes you'll see tracks all along the beach but no nest because the female couldn't find an appropriate spot. Normally turtles will return to nest within 200 yards of where they were born.
