FAUNA
Fossil remains dating from 2000-3000 years ago show that the Giara was home to large mammalians such as deer and fallow deer. Unfortunately these animals are now extinct on the Giara.
Nowadays the animal that most closely associated with the Giara is the wild pony.

Other animals
Giara is also home to wild boars, martens, foxes and wild cats. There are also numerous birds, both year round habitants and migratory, which live on the plateau such as buzzards, kestrels, owls, red pied woodpeckers, bee-eaters and jays who populate woods, ridges and open areas while moorhens, little grebes, mallards, herons and sometimes flamingoes prefer the wet zones of is paulis.

Of particular interest is the endemic species of Lepidurus, an arcaic crustacean that makes its home in is paulis. This species lives on water plants and has not changed in the last 200 million years
