Lyssos, as mentioned earlier, is not only characterized by its flora but also by its fauna, which consists of rare kinds of birds and reptiles. This is the place to see Cyprus Moufflons, a kind of wild goat that only lives in the forest of Paphos, hares and foxes, carrions, peacocks, owls, sparrows and many more visitant birds.
