Episode summary:

In tonight's final episode of Jungle, Charlotte Uhlenbroek explores the watery world of jungle life, Sunday 28 November at 7.30pm. Rainforests are some of the wettest places on the planet and none more so than the Amazon. Standing at the top of Angel Falls, the highest waterfall in the world, Charlotte explains how the biggest river system in the world operates. Millions of tonnes of water pours into 11,000 tributaries of the Amazon Basin each year. Charlotte takes us on a journey through the streams, rivers, swamps and lakes of the Amazon in search of the crocodiles, giant river otters, pink dolphins and other wildlife that make this place unique. As Charlotte wades across streams and swamps there are perils in, as well as on, the water including crocodiles, stingrays, piranhas and giant anacondas. The dangerous candiru fish, if given the chance, will happily find a home in your bladder! The waterways are the main arteries for the animals too, and along the rivers and lakes are some of the best jungle spectacles in the world.
