Screened on Wednesday 30th July at 8pm, as part of a three-part series on BBC One, the BBC Natural History Unit ventured in to remote parts of Guyana to uncover some of the most extraordinary jungle on earth.
Over 80% of the land in Guyana is pristine rainforest but much of it is under threat from loggers. In order to help protect this pristine environment, the Lost Land of the Jaguar team explored new species of animals in parts of the rainforest that have been earmarked for logging or oil exploration.
The team tracked a variety of animals ranging from those high in the canopy to those deep in the rivers and uncovered some of the giants that this fascinating country is home to. Anacondas, jaguars, giant anteaters, giant turtles, giant otters and harpy eagles are just a few of the beautiful creatures that the team looked for.
With the latest camera technology, some remarkable footage was captured.
