Biodiversity at Mount Roraima
Table-topped tepuis are found only in the Guiana Highlands of South America. 70% of the flora and fauna found on top of Mount Roraima is unique to these tepuis and one-third is endemic. The carnivorous pitcher plants and the Roraima bush toad – a tiny black frog with a yellow body found only on Roraima – often lie on top of the list for nature enthusiasts. The elusive brown-nosed coati is also said to live in these parts. Hummingbirds, tiny parrots and nocturnal oilbirds are some of the many species that are found in the region, making this one of the top wildlife destinations in the world for rare and endemic species.
