Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka

A bit of animation is added to this standard Disney wildlife documentary, this time the focus is on the jaguar in Brazil's rain forest. Excellent photography captures a wide range of carnivorous beasts just being carnivorous, though the hunt-and-kill approach to jungle life may have little or no appeal to some children or their parents, in fact. Crocodiles and boa constrictors could both give the jaguar a run for its money, but other less-aggressive animals also come in and out of the camera's selective lens, such as iguanas, anteaters, and sloths. The sounds of the rain forest that accompany its active, animal population, as well as its lush foliage and tall trees, add considerable interest to the jaguar and its exploits.
