Really Wild Animals: Totally Tropical Rain Forest

Take a totally tropical trip to the rain forest with Spin, National Geographic's animated globe-on-the-go! Explore the life-filled rain forest, where there's a greater variety of plants and animals than anywhere else on the earth. In Central and South America, kids will meet spotted jaguars, colorful poison-arrow frogs, slow-moving sloths, and loud-mouthed howler monkeys all captured by the world's finest filmmakers. Exciting music videos celebrate the wonderfully weird creatures from the shady forest floor to the sunny treetop canopy. Approximately 40 minutes. For ages 4 to 10. © 1994 
Available as both VHS and in a DVD package
