“This is by far the best Jaguar footage ever filmed, much of it at very close range - I loved watching these majestic cats bathe, play, socialise and hunt, especially the beautiful, elusive, black panther: the spirit of the forest”

Contains 12 episodes on 3 DVDs - total running time more than 10 hours!

Untamed Amazonia is a vibrant and very colourful wildlife documentary series that provides a unique account of the rare animals living in the Pantanal, a huge wetland area on the banks of the Amazon River.

The series was filmed over a number of years by some of the best wildlife filmmakers, mainly on location in Brazil.

By using the best camera techniques available, including static, hidden cameras, underwater cameras and special night equipment, Untamed Amazonia has managed to capture the shy and elusive creatures of the Brazilian rainforest in amazing quality and unparalleled clarity.

It looks at the three main ecosystems along the Amazon and at the influence of the river and its tributaries on flora and fauna. The Amazon is the world's longest river and during the rainy season it grows to over 30km in width. It carries a large amount of sediment, which affects the animals and plants in and around the river. The annual flooding of the Amazon creates unique habitats and creatures found nowhere else on earth.

Each animal is a link in the food chain in the forest and this series shows both beauty and cruelty.

The filmmakers have focused on a small number of key species by following them through their life cycles and key events. Many other rare animals make a brief appearance and are shown in amazing details. The series follows families of jaguars, pink dolphins, tapirs, peccaries, capybara, storks and giant otters over a period of time, showing their development, family structure, feeding habits and survival strategies.

The images are vivid, razor sharp and much of the footage has been shot at very close range. The incredible close-ups of jaguars, tapirs, sloths, amphibians and rare insects are unprecedented.

The documentary is complemented by a grand, specially composed musical score.

Untamed Amazonia provides more than ten hours of amazing footage of some of the rarest and most spectacular animals of South America.

No interviews with scientists, no CGI graphics, no re-enactments or unnecessary background info – just ten hours of animals in their natural habitats, without a single human in sight.
