World in the heart of South America, a violent Paradise where searing drought and devastating flood shape the lives of exotic creatures battling to survive. Roughly the size of Florida, Brazil's Pantanal wetland looks idyllic, but life here is harsh. In the first of three programs, as the annual floodwaters drain away, the wars of jaguar and caiman play out on a stage set by the most extreme elements on Earth. The second show reveals caiman, anacondas and giant river otters spreading far and wide in the floods. In the concluding program the filmmakers share their own secrets, including how they captured jaguars as never seen before.
