14 wild animals you had no idea you could see in the UK

Here’s where to find them…

MAY 27, 2018

When it comes to wildlife spotting in the UK, you might expect to see common species of native birds, grey squirrels and hares. But did you know there are some rare wild animals in the UK that many Brits didn’t even know inhabit our land?

According to the latest research by last minute UK holiday rental company, Snaptrip, 82% of Brits are unaware of the wildlife roaming our country and didn’t know you could see orcas, humpback whales, coatis, hoopoe birds and sand lizards in the UK.

Even more surprising, a third of people have never even seen a hedgehog!

The survey, which gathered information from 1,000 people across the UK, also showed that many of us are not clued up with what wildlife there is within our seas. More than three quarters (78%) of participants were unaware that you can see a killer whale, 77% didn’t know you can see a humpback whale, and 40% of people didn’t recognise you could observe sharks. There are, in fact, at least 11 different species of sharks swimming in local waters.
