>Well, Colombia is suposed to be the second country in biodiversity next to
Brazil, and the first if you count only birds...but I cannot come with one

"guacamaya"), cayman (crocodile) ("caimán" and "babilla"), bear (Andean

Isn't the cayman a distinct species of crocodile, just as the alligator is a
species, and "proper" crocodiles are crocodiles?
The difference is large enough - considering the distinctions of
reindeer/elk/moose, ... etc.

Just my 2 cents, though.
