Tribes, Predators and Me

Gordon Buchanan joins a Waorani tribal family in Ecuador's Amazon jungle as they search for giant anacondas. The tribe know this remote rainforest and its spectacular wildlife better than anyone else. They teach Gordon their secrets for surviving here, using blow pipes and sharpened sticks to hunt monkeys and wild pigs. But his greatest challenge is to help them catch and release a massive anaconda, an animal of spiritual importance that could hold the key to their future.
