Amazon River Forest
Discover an Amazon tributary in three distinct stages of seasonal flooding.
Amazon River Forest portrays an Amazon tributary at the beginning stage of its seasonal flooding into the surrounding forest. During this time, rivers overflow their banks and water rises 10 to 40 vertical feet, creating a unique, seasonal habitat for an incredible diversity of animals. Two smaller exhibits portray identical slices of the river forest: one in the rainy season and the other in the dry season.
