    If you're referring to wild animals...mongoose, all kinds of birds, crocodiles, deer (oddly enough) in the Portland area, a variety of frogs - Jamaica is known for their tree frogs, lizards, farm animals, dogs, cats

    Bnewb is correct, there are whitetail deer in Portland. There were two captive deer a buck and a doe and during a hurricane there escaped their enclosure and into the wild. Twenty years later there are upwards of 180 whitetails in Portland that wreck havoc on the farmers in the hills behind Hope Bay.

    Donkeys, goats, mongoose, treefrogs, hummingbirds, vultures, and I once saw a guy feed a whole chicken on a fishing pole to the Crocodiles in Portmore

    Let's not forget the pigs, both 4 and 2 legged.
    And BikerMike, if by the Zoo you mean Hedo, yes it's still going strong and looks great lately. They have a few pigs there as well, some who can be quite entertaining, or obnoxious, when sautéed in alcohol
