Hedgehogs can be found almost anywhere in Greece. When it is threatened it will roll into a ball to protect itself with its spines. Hedgehogs build nests of leaves, grass and moss. They hibernate for most of the summer in this nest. They are usually nocturnal. They like to eat worms, snails, beetles, berries and fruit.
Mediterranean Monk Seal
Mediterranean monk seals are diurnal and feed on a variety of fish and mollusks, primarily octopus, squid, and eels, up to 3 kg per day. They are known to forage mostly at depths of 150–230 feet, but some have been observed by the NOAA in a submersible at a known feeding ground at a depth of 500 feet. Monk seals prefer hunting in wide-open spaces, enabling them to use their speed more effectively. They are successful bottom-feeding hunters; some have even been observed lifting slabs of rock in search of prey.
There are two different types of pelicans in Greece.
