A BBC/Discovery Channel Co-Production. The very heart of Africa, the Congo rain forest, is the most dynamic habitat on the planet and home to more than a quarter of the continent's mammals. Witness as the program profiles the Congo's most unique creatures, including chimpanzees that use tools, forest elephants, leaf folding frogs, and more. The presentation also evaluates such jungle phenomena as bioluminescent fungus, the forest's ability to create storms, and the emptying of the Congo Basin. Living in the Congo forces every form of life to battle for food, space, and light. NOTE: This program contains content that portrays animals in their natural environment and may be disturbing or inappropriate for some viewers. Please preview before showing in class.
