Pantepuis

WWF Abstract

The Tepuis ecoregion is named for its most famous feature--isolated mountains with dramatic cliffs rising out of the forest, topped with flat summits covered with an amazing array of species. Some species may be found on a single mountaintop here and nowhere else on Earth. Each mountain, called a tepui, is home to a different set of species and features. But the ecoregion as a whole is known for the wild diversity on these spectacular slopes: waterfalls, birds, orchids, insect-eating plants, monkeys, snakes, iguanas, and more.
