    I've never been to Guam, but would be interested to know how much wildlife is still there? What about the Brown Tree Snake population?

    I used to live there. Honestly not much wildlife is left in terms of birds. The only ones left are drongos, jungle fowl, and sparrows basically. I never really saw brown tree snakes though. I saw two dead ones and a few in traps, but never in the wild alive. The last remaining real wildlife of Guam are the spiders and geckos, and the marine life. If you have anymore questions ask away

    Did you see the feral Java Sparrows there? If so, do you know where they originated from (it is to my understanding that they are a relatively recent introduction in Guam)?

    There is a small Cultural Experience called Valley of the Latte. It has water buffalo, Philippine Deer, and coconut crabs I believe. But no. No other collection. :(

    Quick edit: The zoo is absolutely terrible.

    I did not see any when I lived there. However, if they are a recent introduction they might be there, as I moved in 2018.
