The Amazon region contains a vast number of plant and animal species, many of them endangered,  and some of the world's most unusual wildlife. Jaguars, harpy eagles and pink dolphins, and thousands of birds and butterflies all call the Amazon home. Tree-dwelling species include southern two-toed sloths, pygmy marmosets, saddleback and emperor tamarins, and Goeldi's monkeys. The diversity of the region is extraordinary and there are recorded over 40,000 plant species, 3,000 freshwater fish species and more than 370 types of reptiles.
