Colombia is the second most biologically diverse country on Earth, being home to about 10 percent of the world's species. This rich biodiversity results from Colombia's varied ecosystems, which range from  tropical rainforest, to coastal cloud forests, to open savannas or high Páramo
More than 1,821 species of birds, 623 species of amphibians, 467 species of mammals, 518 species  of reptiles, and 3,200 species of fish have so far been recorded in Colombia, with new species being often discovered. 
In 2009 fossil hunters working in an open pit coal mine in N.E Colombia discovered the remains of a snake that would have measured at least 13 metres long and weighing around 1.140 kg. It's prey brobably included alligators. It has been aptly named Titanoboa cerrejonensis by its discoverers. With regards to flora, Colombia has a staggering 51,220 species of plants, nearly 30 percent of these being endemic.
