Alderney is famous for not containing any large mammals in its terrestrial habitats. Deer, foxes, badgers, stoats and weasels are all absent from the island.

However, Alderney is home to a whole multitude of small mammals with the likes of bats and hedgehogs (including the rare 'blonde' form) resident across the island. The waters around Alderney also host a few species of marine mammals.
