Transcript of Ecuador
Ecuadorian clothing varies depending on where they live. If you live in Ecuador the people will know what city you are from by the clothes you wear. For example, in Quito, Ecuador's Capitol, men typically wear blue ponchos and fedoras. They also wear a Shimba, or a long braid that typically goes down to the mans waist, which is a symbol of ethnic identity. In the coastal regions, the women wear light dresses and the men wear Guayaberas, or a loose fitting shirt. If you were to visit Ecuador, foreigners are expected to dress more formally.
There are 317 mammal species in Ecuador, 1,600 bird species (15% of the worlds bird species), as well as 106 reptile species and 136 amphibian species. Needless to say, Ecuador is filled with creatures. One of these creatures is the Ocelot, or a small Amazonian cat, as seen below. Another animal is the Sechuran Fox, which is a nocturnal creature that is nearly threatened due to habitat loss. The last animal is a Cloud Forest Pigmy Owl. It is a small, threatened owl species found in Ecuador and Colombia.
