Looking for Jaguar takes you on an expedition through the world's rain forests. In Costa Rica you will trek across a jungle in the clouds. In Brazil you will canoe among treetops. In Belize you will stand in the spattering rain listening to howler monkeys roar. In Borneo you will cling to a rope bridge high in the canopy.
