Unparalleled and remarkable biodiversity
Meet some of the endangered giants of South America, many of which are still thriving in Guyana: jaguar, giant river otter, giant anteater, giant armadillo, capybara, harpy eagle, arapaima, a water lily big enough to support a child, black and spectacled caiman, giant river turtle, false vampire bat, the bushmaster pit viper, green anaconda, and a bird-eating spider.
More than 800 bird species are found here, including the coy Guianan cock-of-the-rock, the elusive rufous-winged ground cuckoo, and the critically endangered red siskin and sun parakeet.
You can also see manatee, bearded saki monkeys, Brazilian tapir, river stingrays, poison dart frogs, brilliantly-coloured beetles and butterflies, and the list goes on.
