WILDLIFE IN THE PARK

Fauna: The wildlife in the park is extremely varied, which is also widespread due to the multiple environmental factors such as height and type of vegetation. Amongst the species found here are:


The southern tamandua, the white-lipped peccary, the Guianan squirrel, the puma, the deer, the three-toed sloth, the weasel, the crab-eatting fox, the owl monkey, the black-capped capuchin, rats, the giant anteater, the giant otter, the jaguar and the wildcat.  Reptiles include the chameleon, the iguana, the yellow-footed tortoise, serpents such as the false coral, green vine snake, anaconda, false mapepire, and poisonous snakes like the coral snake, mapepire, bushmaster and rattlesnake. There are also numerous species of frogs and toads.  For bird species we can cite the red and blue macaw, the brown-throated parakeet, the king vulture, the white bellbird, the hummingbird, capuchin bird, Guianan cock-of-the-rock, toucans etc.
 

VEGETATION

Vegetation: The plant life in Canaima Park is very diverse and rich in endemic species, meaning that these species are exclusive to this region. It would be too long a list to name them all here, which is why we only mention the most important ones:

Bonettia Roraimae, Bonetias of the tepuis, Bochinea Reducta, Brochinea Micrantha, Clusias, Droseras, Heliamphoras, Stegolepis Guyanensis, Orectanthes, Euterpes (palms), Thibaudias, and a long etc., since in the park there exist a large amount of plant species that we are collecting and exhibiting shortly.
