The paper deals with five Mediterranean species from Dobrogea Neo- eneolithic pre – history period. These species are: a sea shell Spondylus gaederopus, a sea fish – Sparus auratus found on the Black Sea coast and three terrestrial species: two of them better known, with a popular name – the lion and the fallow deer, and the third Equus (Asinus) hydruntinus, disappeared a few millenniums ago. All the species are nowadays considered Mediterranean. Their presence in Dobrogea in far away times was due to geographical events: the Bosfor Strait formation as a result of tectonic movements, this causing important changes in Black Sea`s characteristics and the post glacier optimum climate that extended to the north the Mediterranean climate.
