Selwo Marina is inhabited by the most representative species of marine fauna and tropical forests from all over the world. Don't want to miss out? Visit our photo album with the park's species on Facebook, look at the best pictures on our Instagram profile or be surprised by the curiosities of the species that inhabit Selwo Marina and Selwo Aventura in our hastag #LearnWithSelwo on Twitter. We hope to see you soon!
With an herbivorous or carnivorous diet, this group is characterised by feeding on mother's milk in their childhood and includes cetaceans, which are fully adapted to marine life. You can enjoy these species on your visit to Selwo Marina, our presentation programme or live a unique experience at the Dolphin Encounter.
Birds are characterised by their body covered with feathers that allow them to effectively protect themselves from humidity and cold. Most of them, like the ones you can see in the Exotic Birds Presentation, can fly, while the Ice Island penguins use their wings to move skillfully when they are submerged. Do you dare to live a unique experience in the fascinating Penguin Encounter?
Scattered throughout the planet and having been the most numerous animal group in prehistoric times, reptiles have scaly skin and lack a system for regulating their body temperature, depending on the environment or their own behaviour to control their body temperature. For this reason it is common to find them quiet to reduce their energy consumption, sunbathing or grouped together to warm themselves. Be surprised at the species of The Amazon and the rest of the park!
Trachemys scripta elegans
Amphibians have bare skin, without scales or feathers, and are characterised by a metamorphosis or transformation throughout their lives, breathing through their gills when they are larvae or young and through their lungs as adults. Going into The Amazon of Selwo Marina you can be surprised by some species of the tropical rainforests.
With more than ten million species with different characteristics, arthropods have an exoskeleton or outer shell that protects their organs but does not grow as the animal does, so they must moult throughout their lives, at which time they are especially vulnerable to their predators.
As the first vertebrates of animal evolution, fish are characterised by being adapted to aquatic life and having fins, a body covered with scales and breathing dissolved oxygen in the water through their gills.
