The number of Belize endemics is small. As a very small country it does not have many habitats that are unique to the area given its location next to Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras. Most native species are found in the Maya Mountains and in the Lowland Savannahs.
Fish (Salt & Freshwater) 630-640
Vascular Plants 3,750-4,000
Native Trees 700
