Maldives bat 2

After an unforgettable eleven days spent gambolling around with hermit crabs, lizards and other fascinating fauna, I felt prompted to write an article about the unsung heroes of the Maldives: the animals that you find on land. The sealife, as I have written about elsewhere, is undeniably world-class and utterly beguiling, but it is a shame to let it entirely eclipse the compelling denizens who have somehow managed to make the tiny white sand patches in the Indian Ocean their permanent residence. Got Saga published a series I wrote on land and sea life in the Maldives and you can read my account of some of the animals we met at Herathera Island Resort here.
