Los Llanos or Plains represent 40% of the total surface of Venezuela; they are vast tropical grasslands where agriculture and herding are the main activities. 

Los Llanos flood during the rainy season and become arid during the dry season.  These natural reservoirs are full of diversified animals offering 350 species of birds and over 50 species of mammals.

Waders are particularly easy to observe.  It is a perfect area for bird watching!
