The Big Island's Flora and Fauna. Water, wind and wings carried Hawaii's pioneering plants and animals to their remote, tropical island homes. After traversing thousands of miles of open ocean, locating suitable habitats, and overcoming reproductive challenges, the sturdy survivors began populating the land and waters of Hawaii. Caribbean Flora & Fauna The Caribbean islands were born bare, without any animals or plants. Except for Trinidad, all of the West Indies are classified as oceanic islands, formed from fiery volcanic upheavals and other cataclysmic events. The Caribbean Islands accumulated their plant and animal populations. Endemic island skunks show up on two of the Channel Islands, unique deer mice can be found on all eight. Three islands have their own night lizards, another three have endemic fence lizards, four have endemic salamanders, and Santa Cruz boasts its own gopher snake.
