In 1956 Paul Hahn excavated two trenches at the preceramic site of Las Obas near Manzanillo in southeastern Cuba. Our analysis of vertebrate faunal remains from this site shows that while the assemblage from Las Obas is dominated by the remains of hutia, bones of fish, birds and reptiles are also well represented. This paper focuses on the ecological and economic implications of the vertebrate faunal assemblage from Las Obas and also presents two new radiocarbon dates for the site.
