How many species of reptiles
A biodiversity hotspot is a region of the world that has at least 1,500 endemic plant species and has lost at least 70% of its natural habitat: it has great biological richness but higher levels of threat. Globally, there are 36 hotspots whose habitats cover only 2.3% of the Earth, but are home to half of all plants and 77% of terrestrial vertebrates.
The Tropical Andes Hotspot, located in South America, is the most biologically rich hotspot on the planet: it is home to more than 34,000 species, including plants and animals, half of which are endemic, which is why it has been recognized as a "biological reserve of humanity".
