Jeff has finally made it to the most impressive river system in the world — the Amazon. He's been to Brazil several times, but never to this mighty waterway, which dumps about 55 million gallons per second into the Atlantic Ocean. Jeff has come to encounter the exotic, strangely adapted and beautiful creatures of the basin, but he also plans to visit many of his colleagues who have made their life's work studying these unique creatures. Oh, and along the way he'll be partaking in a popular Brazilian cuisine, otherwise known as the banana.
