There are also known records of the swimming abilities of deer [105, 189] ( Fig. 12), and although not aquatic animals, cervids have long been known for their migratory water crossing . 4 The island endemics. The mammals of the Upper Pleistocene 19 Hippopotamuses are commonly believed to be excellent divers and swimmers, but they are poorly streamlined , not buoyant, and their feet are not sufﬁciently modiﬁed for swimming ( and references therein).
Dispersed in Asia Minor, it seems to occur also on Kos and Lesbos (compare with [55, 273]). As observed by Giagia-Athanasopoulou and Markakis , the position of hedgehogs from the island of Lesbos in canonical (discriminant) analysis (CA), and their similarity to the specimens from Asia Minor, support the opinion that it is also probably present on Lesbos. 26.

Evidence from the islands of Milos in the Western Cycladic archipelago [214, 218] and also possibly Kythnos  and Cyprus [217, 220–221], indicate improved seafaring capacities. In fact, from the late Mesolithic period onwards, the Mediterranean Sea can be considered as a preferential route for the exploration and subsequent colonisation of its coastlines and islands (compare with [214, 222–225]. There is also evidence of a pre-Neolithic human occupation of Crete (compare with ). For some islands it would appear that the endemic oligotypic associations and/or single species vanished prior to periods for which there is evidence of permanent human occupation (compare with ).
