This chapter describes the animals and plants found in the lands inhabited by the Mayos. It explains that the coastal vegetation of Mayo lands is divided into two subgroups, estuarine plants and dune and beach communities, and their lands contain several estuaries dominated by three species of mangroves. It describes the Mayo coastal thornscrub, foothills thornscrub and oak woodland. It also mentions that in Mayo lands snakes are feared and persecuted, with two notable and large exceptions: the boa constrictor and the indigo snake.

Keywords:   animals, plants, Mayos, coastal vegetation, estuarine plants, dune, beach communities, snakes, boa constrictor, indigo snake
