I have looked from information on the web, yes I found something, am I glad I didn't give up :)

To know whether wild animals died in Mount Fuji hundreds of years ago, we need to know if animal life can live around the mountain today. And they do. This does not gives us any certainty by any means that animals were living in the volcano mountain when the volcano erupted. We know the most common would be fish in the water and I understand that a water temperature change alone can get fish to die within minutes. I was thinking that a mountain covered in snow would have penguins, but not here. Anyway this is what I found:

  • "Mammals: 37 living species are recorded, including the rare Japanese serow. Asiatic black bears are also seen on occasion. Japanese squirrels and foxes can be viewed from the mountain base to Shin-gogoume."

Hundreds of species of birds live in the mountain too and other types of animals, but I encourage you to look at this page with the information: [1]
