[edit] Information

National Geographic - Journey into Amazonia Journey into Amazonia features the swollen rivers, flooded forests and dense canopy of the vast rain forest recognized as one of Earth's natural wonders. For three years, producer Harry Marshall and his team braved sweltering heat and insect swarms to capture the changing seasons of a magical world. This three-part wildlife series offers an enchanting look at rarely seen creatures as they contend with the volatile waters of the world's largest river system. The river's rich, turbulent waters sustain a vast cast of characters, including seven-foot otters, fruit-harvesting fish, fresh water dolphins and manatees. On land, stealthy jaguar’s prowl, acrobatic monkeys defy gravity and keen eyed harpy eagles soar. This three-part series is the result of a three-year adventure in the rivers, forests, and canopy of the rainforests of Amazonia.

In Journey into Amazonia, Episode 2: The Land Reborn, Harry Marshall and his intrepid team record the cycles of the mightiest river in the world. The crew fights off the stifling heat and unimaginable numbers of insects to offer a look at the predators of Amazonia. The two-and-a-half-million square miles of rainforest, nourished by flood waters, is home to jaguars, tarantulas, and swarms of army ants, who find no dearth of prey, especially among the thriving rodent population.

Almost half the world's species lives in Amazonia, where conditions are nearly perfect for their continuing survival. Food sources abound for carnivores and herbivores alike. The film crew for this series records harpy eagles big enough to carry monkeys, whose acrobatic skills cannot always save them from being prey. They record the infamous tree sloths, whose extreme inactivity can trigger algae growth on their bodies. Journey into Amazonia, Episode 3: The Big Top examines the life and death drama that occurs daily in the canopy more than 100 feet above the forest floor
