Invasive Animals and Its Characteristics
Invasive mammals refer to those species that are alien in nature. They are those mammals that are destructive and sometimes may cause economic or environmental harms. They are also sometimes responsible to cause harm to human beings. These mammals are also called as Alien species. They are the species that spoil the ecosystem to much extent. They can never be the native of the ecosystem and are famous for spoiling it. These mammals can come from any countries and invade the host countries. These mammals are not the native habitats of the country and they come from some other nearby countries.
NISC is the organization that monitors the invasive mammals around the world. This institution has the records of all those mammals of that type. These mammals are called invasive mammals in technical terms because they are uncontrollable and are destructive to the environment. They spread in large numbers. There are many measures implemented by the NISC, in order to control the population of these mammals. There are many precautions that can be taken in order to protect from the harm caused by these mammals. In spite of that there are some invasive mammals that are helpful to the people and the country as well.
Invasive mammals’ management is a difficult job to be undertaken. This is a very expensive thing and they cost a lot to the team or the organization. Apart from the mammals there are many other species like reptiles and amphibians as well that are considered to be invasive animals. For example mongoose and some varieties of Fox in Florida have come from Hawaii Island and has become the resident of Florida. The feral Hog, Feral cat, Gambian rat, Nutria and armadillo are the few other invasive mammals that have invaded in Florida. Not only in Florida but also all over the world there are many invasive mammals that cause harm to the environment.
