In the northern lowland plains, Caño Negro is seasonally flooded, forming lakes and marshes that are home to many different species, especially birds. In the dry season, the area is reduced to little lagoons, river channels and strips of riverbank inhabited by many different birds.
Some bird species likely to be spotted here are cattle egrets, wood storks, and roseate spoonbills, as well as the largest colony of cormorants. The river shelters tortoises, caimans, and about 30 species of fish, including the prehistoric gar, considered to be a living fossil.
