This video takes to the Amazon Basin to find a very large fresh water fish, the pirarucu. We also look at a Bothrops atrox viper who has recently consumed a meal a monkey frog which is not just a frog that hops, it also walks and the red-faced uakari monkey who has had its habitat reduced and has been hunted to near extinction.
