Mammals of Iceland

Before humans and their imports, the Arctic Fox was the only land mammal. Humans of course brought along their farm animals like sheep, horses and cattle, but also mice, minks, and in the 18th century reindeer.

At sea, there are two types of seals, and plenty of whales. We saw humpback whales – very impressive!

And by the way, no amphibians or reptiles live in Iceland!
