Mammals

  • Bats (2)
  • Sea Lion (3)


Yes, that's correct: almost no mammals. The conjecture is that animals only got to the islands via flying, swimming, or riding small rafts of downed forest material. Most mammals can't fly, don't swim that far, and would drop through the forest materials rafts.

Note that the fur seal is actually these days regarded as a sea lion.
