One of the most notable of the introduced animal species in Jamaica is the Indian mongoose. It was introduced in 1872 to help regulate an out-of-control rat population and became an invasive species, but now it is naturalized. Jamaica is home to more than 200 avian species, many of which were introduced. Twenty-seven of the 200 bird species that live in Jamaica are unique to the island. Some of the more popular ones are the Jamaican huita and the yellow-billed and black-billed parrots. This island, however, does not have an abundance of land mammals. The only mammals found on the island are bats, some which are native, and the coney (an endangered rodent). Endangered butterflies, such as the giant swallowtail and blue swallowtail, are also endemic to Jamaica.
