It has been observed that the fauna is poorer when compared to more extensive areas of cocoa-cabruca, closer from forest remnants. Although that, it still maintain species of conservationist interest. From the point of view of biological control agents, it has been observed the absence of important predatory ants, normally present in other regions.
