Jungle

The tropical forests of Belize provide habitats for a wide range of animals including jaguar, puma, ocelot, armadillo, tapir and crocodile.

The country is also home to 4,000 species of tropical flowers, including 250 kinds of orchids.

It harbors over 500 species of birds that soar through Belize’s vine trailed jungles: fruit-loop keel-billed toucans (Belize’s national bird); jabiru stork, the largest flying bird in the Americas; the rare agami heron; hummingbirds; neon-green-painted parrots; an abundance of macaws, heron and snowy egret that delight sharp-eyed eco-travelers.
