From the short-tailed shrew to the white-tailed deer we estimate that there are 29 species of mammals living at the Arbo, making it one of the most species diverse areas on the Island of Montreal. With a keen eye, you should be able to spot quite a few of them or signs of their presence, depending on the season and the time of day.
