Book
Follow the rain-forest expert Nalini Nadkarni as she climbs through layers of foliage, from the dark forest floor to the misty cloud canopy that teems with life. Visit the world's most amazing habitat to see its huge variety of flora and fauna, from anteaters to pitcher plants, from piranhas to bromeliads. Readers open the panoramic gatefold to see which spectacular creatures live in each of the rain forest's layers, then turn the acetates to reveal how the ancient Mayans worshipped at the jungle Temple of the Jaguar in 700 B.C. The journey ends in the giddy heights of the uppermost treetops, where few scientists dare to explore.
