The Howler Monkey, the subject of the first section of this program, is the largest primate of the ‘New World’ and is shown in the jungles of Costa Rica. The section shows the Howler Monkey’s anatomy, highlighting its prehensile tail and hands, and vocal tract. The second section of this program is about the Iguana. An explanation of why ultraviolet rays are important to the growth and health of the iguana gives students an insight into the importance of the iguana’s parietal or ‘third eye’. The last section in this program is about the Amazon Parrot. Amazon Parrots live in social groups and communicate in a variety of vocalizations. A comparison of the vocal capabilities of humans and parrots is detailed. --from publisher's website
