NATURE: Hotel Armadillo
The battle to save the Giant armadillo is the battle to save biodiversity.""- Arnaud Desbiez, Conservation Biologist
You won't find this hotel on the beaches of Rio. Deep in the heart of the Brazilian wetlands, the mysterious and secretive Giant armadillo digs a new burrow every other night. Once this termite-eater moves on, it leaves behind one of the hottest plots of real estate in the tropical Pantanal for 80 species of diverse and ever-changing animal clientele. We'll get a never-before-seen look as guests walk, squawk, slither, and crawl from far and wide to get the best room available. From families of nursing anteaters to foraging coatis, the ""Hotel Armadillo"" showcases all the grasslands have to offer along with the scientists who ""check in"" these exotic guests.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
