Product Description

The tropical rain forests of the world are home to nearly half the animal species on earth - an estimated five million different life forms. More than 100 inches of rainfall each year sustain this lush environment, where some of the most fascinating examples of natural adaptation can be found. Journey to the dense rain forests of Costa Rica and watch as leaf-cutting ants carry sections of leaves many times their weight to underground fungus gardens, a basilisk lizard walks on water, and howler monkeys bask in the sun. Fascinating and thought-provoking, this film is an eloquent warning of the natural wonders we stand to lose on a world scale if human encroachment of the world's rain forests continues.

Rain Forest, the classic National Geographic special, is still a joy to behold. The photography of the Costa Rican jungle is rock-steady, lush, and fascinating; Richard Kiley's narration is absorbing and informative; and the real stars--the animals and plants--are charismatic and entertaining. Watch a deadly coral snake grab a drink, a mother sloth s-l-o-w-l-y take her baby for a walk, and a colony of ants defend its home (an acacia tree) from encroaching vines and grasshoppers. Learn the secrets of the wily anole as it stalks its prey and finds a mate, and witness the basilisk lizard literally walk on water! You're sure to be overwhelmed by the sheer abundance of life filling every niche of the Rain Forest, so be sure to make time for repeat viewings. --Rob Lightner

This video is a great introduction to the ecology of the rainforest. The soundtrack is good (although nap-inspiring in some places). The camera work is top notch (it is National Geographic after all). The narration is engaging, but a little over-dramatic in places. The only gripe I have is the "save the rainforest" bit at the end of the tape. It is as annoying as it is unnecessary. Most people I know could live without more eco-preaching.
