The Eastern Plains, locally known as "Los Llanos", is a big area of the country's surface at the East of the Andean mountains and mostly covered by savanna, gallery forest, cattle ranches and plantations. It is an amazingly biodiverse area that shelters several species of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and more animal groups.
