0:03:23 | Clip
South America’s Guiana Shield is home to a chain of tabletop mountains known locally as Tepuis. Completely isolated from the surrounding forest, their plateau has a cool climate and frequent rainfall, while the jungle below is tropical and humid. Tepuis are renowned for their endemic species. Cut off for millions of years, the flora and fauna that lives here has evolved into entirely new species.
