Venezuela: Mt Roraima – Roraima Wildlife
There are practically no animals on top of Mount Roraima – the environment is too inhospitable and there is essentially no food. There is a small population of coati that is rarely seen (saw their tracks however). There are several various species of insects and almost all of them are endemic – they are found only here on Roraima and nowhere else on else on the planet. Everything is dark and black here – black butterflies, black beetles, black crickets, and several species of small water/dwelling bugs.
