At first glance, a surprising name was given to the waterfall because the rocks its structure from a distance resemble paws eat and breed in a green shade stained grass and mosses, which are rinsed with water, grow well in this place. Waterfall has a pretty decent fall height of the water, which is equal to one hundred meters. However, the overthrow of the water can be seen here only in the spring when in the highlands intensive in snowmelt. Spring flood fills waterfall with plenty of water, which is audible from falling for a significant distance. At another time of the year is a unique creation of nature trails off.

According to Sergio Lopez Mendoza, Professor School of Biological Sciences at the University of Chiapas, the unique structure of this waterfall has evolved over 1000 years. This is the result of the natural hydrological cycle, physical and chemical characteristics of rocks. Unfortunately, the unique waterfall Arbol de Navidad is under threat of destruction. The reason was the threat of destruction of human intervention in the environment. As a result of human intervention, dry periods have become more frequent, so the design of the waterfall is becoming weaker. The danger of bursting a unique waterfall was first discovered two years ago. It was the first time it has been observed detachment of rocks. Experts from the Mexican Geological exploration center studied rock formations To diagnose the problem and offer a possible solution more deeply.
