Only in the jungle do you find lizards that can soar like dragons.
He can travel over 100 feet in a single leap.
It's a very fast and efficient way to move through the jungle.
Maybe this new tree will have food and no resident owner.
Everything in the jungle has to compete for space.
Only 2% of the sun's rays reach the ground...
so even the plants must battle for the light they need if they're to grow.
300 years ago, this Hura tree began its race for light.
And every day since, it has absorbed the water and sunshine it needed to grow into a giant.
It has succeeded in doing what every tree must do to survive... rise above the gloom of the jungle floor.
And, what is more, its success has given life to others.
Its branches now carry 1,000 other plants.
These particular ferns, figs and orchids live only on the branches of other trees.
1,000 plants growing on one single tree.
Throughout the forest, this story is repeated endless times.
As a consequence, jungles are home to more species of plants than anywhere else on Earth.
And they, in turn, support a wealth of animals.
