little baby bird.

Look at that.

Are they fireflies?

Pretty, huh?

Family Lampyridae.

They use their night flashes to

announce that they're ready to mate.

- Who flashes? Males or females?

- Both, actually.

The females with short,

dainty, feminine flashes, -

- and the males with long,

drawn-out, manly flashes.

l like that. No pick-up lines,

no misunderstandings.

Just instinct and nature.

l've missed you.

Bloody racket!

Hey! Don't touch my radio!

l could cheerfully hire someone

to kill you.

- 15 dollars should cover it.

- l could just kill you for free.

- You and whose army?

- Your mama's!

Are we getting close?

- Just around this bend.

- Perfect.

A snake totem pole.

lt's the Shirishama's.

They worship giant snakes.

Anacondas. As gods and protectors.

They have a legend

of a journey to a sacred lake.

First you pass a waterfall

with warrior snakes.

Then you travel through the land

of the Shirishama, -

- until you come to a wall so high,

it blots out the sky ...

Then after five days, you reach

the head of a giant anaconda.

- You know the story.

- A beautiful legend ...

... of the Maku.

- Also the Shirishama.

- Not to my knowledge.

Their village was right here.

They're down this fork.

- l know. l trap snakes.

- And l'm sure you're good at it.

l locate tribes.

l'm very good at that.

The water is high,

so this side is flooded.

So our tribe would seek

higher ground over here.

- Which way?

- This way.

l want a shot of you with the totem.

Gary, roll sound.

Camera rolling.

Our first piece of luck:

a Shirishama idol.

l know what l know.

Leave me at the next village.

With pleasure.

What the hell was that all about?

- We'll go get some wild sound.

- Just be careful.

See you guys.

Gary ...

lt's unbelievable.

- Gary ...
