Summary, etc.:
Journey into a jungle of staggering beauty where annual rains transform the forest into a watery world where extraordinary wildlife flourish. Encounter graceful river dolphins navigating through flooded treetops and the usually lethargic three-toed sloth swimming agilely. Watch an arrowhana fish leap through the air and meet two masterful hunters - the electric eel and the piranha. Witness the wonders of nature in what has been called "the greatest evolutionary theatre in the world."
