Flora and Fauna in Honduras click on the image to enlarge
Honduras has a rich and varied flora and fauna. Tropical trees, ferns, moss, and orchids grow particularly in the rain forest areas. Originally the rose was the country’s flower, but in 1969 due to the fact that the rose was not native to Honduras the Orchid was chosen to replace it. Mammal life in Honduras includes the anteater, armadillo, coyote, deer, fox, peccary, pocket gopher, porcupine, puma, tapir, and several varieties of monkey. The white-tail deer is declared a national symbol to help protect and raise awareness of Honduras unique and rich fauna. The deer is found through out Honduras in mountainous and forested areas.
