While the forested lower regions of the plateaus are wealthy in warm blooded creature fauna, the difficult conditions at the top (and the unavailability) imply that there aren't numerous vertebrates here. Those that are generally tiny.
Some endemic models incorporate Tyler's mouse-opossum, which I don't think has at any point been shot (a nearby relative is appeared):
McConnell's climbing rodent (once more, a firmly related animal types is appeared beneath):
Isabelle's phantom bat (once more, not precisely the same species in the photograph):
Also, the thorny Roraima mouse, which was thought terminated until its rediscovery in 2009. The image is right this time.
What's particularly intriguing about this mouse is that its nearest hereditary family members are not found on the marshes encompassing the tepuis, yet path over on the Brazilian Shield on the opposite side of the Amazon Basin. This is on the grounds that its precursors occupied a huge South American level which has now been generally dissolved. In the excess Guianan and Brazilian safeguards, this ancestry of mice has endure.
There are just two "enormous" creatures which are completely known to live on top of tepuis: the kowtowed coati and the southern tamandua, a types of insect eating animal. We have photographic proof in the two cases.
