Miscellaneous

  The proud Cretan beast (capra aegagrus cretica) lives only in the Samaria Gorge. There and elsewhere, you can see Cretan eagles (aquila chrysaetos) and partridges (alectoris chukar). Ferrets, skunks, weasels, hares, hawks, etc. can also be seen in open places.
  There is also an endeavour to protect an area on the north shores of the county especially for the turtles (caretta-caretta), that live there.
