  4. 4. Native animals to France• The Raccoon Dog looks very much like a raccoon but is in fact a member of the dog family. It spread to France from its native habitat of south-east Siberia, China and Japan after being introduced to western parts of Russia for its fur and hunting.• The European or Mediterranean black widow spider can pack a very nasty bite. The venom can produce convulsions and a lowering of body temperature. Although the bite is not often fatal to humans it can be dangerous to the very young, elderly or those with weak hearts. The European Black Widow Spider can be found in the south of France, Corsica and elsewhere along the Mediterranean.
  5. 5. Native animals to France• Red squirrels are a little bit smaller than the Grey squirrel with adults weighing about 350g. Their bodies are between 18 - 24 cm long and their bushy tails up to 18 cm long. The Red squirrel generally has a reddish brown fur and a cream to white belly although their fur colour can be different colours locally. In the winter, adults develop a large blackish furry tufts on their ears and their fur colour can darken. Easily mistaken for a lizard, the Marbled Newt is very striking. Females and young adults have an orange stripe running down their backs while the males in the breeding season acquire a large wavy crest along their backs. They are closely related to the Great crested Newt and have been known to breed with each other creating a hybrid of the two.
