Journey to the tiny island of Siarau on the northwest coast of Borneo, where a tidal mangrove forest survives. Caught between land and sea, the forest and its creatures have adapted in bizarre ways to the daily flooding of their habitat. Tree roots grow above ground in search of oxygen; mudskipper fish have evolved without lungs and can live out of water; and the highly adaptive proboscis monkey is a skillful swimmer and climber. Experience a saltwater wilderness still untouched by man in Creatures of the Mangrove.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD Exclusives titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
