Here we have another of Disney's wonderful True-Life adventures. This one concentrates on the wildlife of the Amazonian rain forest. It concentrates on the jaguar.
Although the cats are beautiful creatures, I found the slow-motion images of birds more engrossing, particularly the flock of flamingos taking off.
Although the Disney series is often called out for its faked footage and trained animals, they were instrumental in nurturing a love of wildlife in the 1950s and 1960s, and certainly no worse than TV shows like WILD Kingdom, in which Marlon Perkins would tell its audience "While Jim wrestles the tiger, he's a message from Mutual of Omaha." Did their life insurance policies cover mauling by jaguars?
