Archivio Fauna - Riserva Naturale Regionale Cascate del Rio VerdeThe exceptional quality of the waters of the Rio Verde is demonstrated by the wealth of fauna, namely aquatic insects, as tricotteri, plecotteri and efemerotteri, which are a major trophic resource for many other animals. Among these, the blackbird acquaiolo and yellow wagtail, birds are particularly sensitive to water pollution and species typical of mountain rivers, fresh and rich in oxygen. Considerable importance is also the presence of river crab (Potamon fluviatile) and in particular of the crayfish (Austropotamobius pallipes), represents a larger population of the region, recent studies have also shown that the local population of trout fario has characteristics pure genetic strain of the Apennines. Other species are partially related to amphibians such as frogs and the green frog Italian (Rana italica) and quite rare reptile found in areas surrounding the falls as the luscengola and Cervone. Very interesting among birds is the presence of numerous birds of prey as well as the common buzzard and sparv, peregrine falcon, the kite and one of the real night owl common. The rich vegetation along the Rio Verde and the surrounding forests are also the main habitat for rare mammals such as the polecat (Mustela putorius) and the wild cat (Felis silvestris). The great environmental value and its integrity is further enhanced by a historical figure of outstanding interest: the famous zoologist Achille Costa, in 1845, reported that it had received the skin of an individual female lynx "captured in Borrello, District of Lanciano" .
