Guppies originally came from Trinidad, a few miles of the coast of northern
Venezuela. A closely related species, Endler's Livebearer, actually comes from
Venezuela. Some people think Endler's fish is only a geographic race of Poecilia
reticulatus. There are livebearers originating in the Amazon, but not guppies.
