Colombia, a paradise of the exotic

 Colombia is the second country with the highest biodiversity on Earth, among 195 nations, and the number one worldwide in species of plants and animals per square kilometer.

Colombia has many species of plants and animals that can not be seen anywhere else in the world. It is one of the few places where new species can still be found. In the botanical world only, a growth is estimated with more than 5 new species a year.
