Brazil's Cerrado

The Cerrado in Brazil is a vast grassland where life is defined by close relationships and synchronized life cycles. An extreme climate has transformed the Cerrado into a theatre of evolution where the inhabitants have acquired remarkable skills, unique shapes and unusual habits -- the predator eats ants, the wolf eats fruit, birds nest in termite mounds and monkeys walk upright like humans.
