In the "low llanos", in the southern parts as well as all the Apure state, we have two seasons: the "summer" or dry season (December-May) and the "winter" or rainy season (June-November). The dry season is the best time to go there to view wildlife. As the land dries up, animals are found in greater concentration around the receding watering holes.
It is a region teeming with wildlife: freshwater dolphins and porpoises, alligators and crocodiles, anacondas, turtles, deer, armadillos, capybaras, monkeys, and an unbelievable number of
birds: ducks, quails, hawks, herons, white, black and scarlet ibises, Orinoco geese, storks and the strange Hoatzin, who climbs in the trees using claws grown on his wings; jabirus and many more.
