| GENERAL INFO (Jump to Diary)|

Belgium has a temperate maritime climate influenced by the North Sea and Atlantic Ocean. The fauna is not that interesting, but among the larger mammals are the Wildcat (Felis silvestris), Common genet (Genetta genetta), Gray Wolf (Canis lupus) and the European otter (Lutra lutra). The flora is only slightly more interesting - and then again; here are actually nothing I will be looking for.
