Zip Facts about Venezuela:

  • Angel Falls (Kerepakupai-Meru), the world’s largest uninterrupted waterfall is located on the Rio Churun in Venezuela.  They were named not by the explorer who found the falls but by an American pilot, Jimmy Angel, who landed his plane at the top
  • Venezuela may have come from the name Veneziela given by Amerigo Vespucci and crew who thought the stilt villages reminded them of Venezia in Italy
  • Caracas, the largest city and the capital, is also considered the witch capital of the world
  • “The Simpsons”, a very popular TV series in the US,  had been removed from stations in Venezuela as being unsuitable for children
  • The largest rodent in the world, Capybara, inhabits the llanos (grassy plains) of Venezuela
