Wildlife In Cuba

Click on the video icon at right to get a glimpse of Cuba's wildlife, from CBS News Sunday Morning.

Located in the northern Caribbean Sea, 145 kilometers south of Key West, Florida, Cuba has a total area of 110,860 square kilometers, making it the largest country in the Caribbean and just slightly smaller than the state of Pennsylvania.

Cuba has mostly flat to rolling plains, with some rugged hills and mountains in the southeast part of the country. As over-hunting and deforestation threaten wildlife populations, the nationÂ's terrestrial fauna no longer contains any animals from which the natives can benefit economically.
