Episode Summary

Amazon: Land of the Flooded Forest
Journey into a tropical jungle of staggering beauty. Here, torrential rains annually transform the dry forest floor into a watery world where some of the most extraordinary and uncommon wildlife flourish. In waters 50 feet deep, you'll encounter graceful river dolphins navigating through flooded treetops and the usually lethargic three-toed sloth swimming agilely among the branches. Watch an arrowhana fish leap through the air to grab a beetle perched on a tree trunk, and meet two masterful hunters - the electric eel and the notorious piranha. In AMAZON: LAND OF THE FLOODED FOREST you'll witness the wonders of nature in what has been called "the greatest evolutionary theater in the world."moreless
