Reptiles include the eyed lizard and the Montpellier, viperine and water snakes. The green, parsley and common frogs are the most abundant of the amphibians. Notable amongst the mammals are the hare, rabbit, water rat, fox, badger, etc.
Cattle farming and agriculture (cereal crops and olive groves) are carried out in the area.
