Cradle Of Life+
Dominating the northern half of South America, the Amazon does nature on a grand scale. Home to some of the most unusual wildlife like the red faced uakari, the Amazon is the world's great refuge for jaguars, harpy eagles, and Amazonian manatees. Thousands of miles of dense forest conceal a hidden world of extraordinary stories of adaptation and survival.
There is no place on Earth quite like it. Turtles strike as fast as snakes and tiny frogs protect huge tarantulas. A beautiful yet brutal realm, the Wild Amazon harbours life that must constantly adapt to survive. Strategies for survival are played out daily from the canopy to the forest floor. Predators like the tarantula live on the ground making it a perilous place.
