Between the tropical rainforests of Costa Rica to the grasslands of Mexico, there are a slew of interesting animals creeping and crawling all over Latin America. The various ecosystems throughout the region are astonishing and beautiful. Here are just some of the magnificent creatures that have earned the title of National Animal.

They all look so smug because they know they’re honorific, just roll with it.
