No Poisonous/Venomous Flora and Fauna
We’ve talked about certain animals that are native or found in abundance in Cuba. But did you know that every creature in Cuba, as well as every type of plant, is non-poisonous? That’s right—they don’t even have poison oak there! Cuba is like the polar opposite of Australia, which probably has grass that would chew on your foot if you gave it a chance.
Cuba is home to several snake and spider species, but none of them contain a single droplet of venom. That’s a huge relief for anyone who wants to trek through the wonderful moist forests in the island country.
