Emas - High Plains of Brazil Where else in the world does a rodent grow as big as a pig; a snake as long as your living-room; and an anteater have a tongue the length of your arm?
Emas National Park provides sanctuary to these and other rare and bizarre creatures of the cerrados - Brazil's grasslands.
This portrait of the Park unravels some of its mysteries; why ferocious ants tolerate thieving intruders; why termite mounds glow eerily at night, and why anteaters wander incessantly over the plains.

One table hosts a match totalling more than 100 years of experience and guile.
Liverpool's George Scott (55) turned professional four years ago. Ray Reardon must be wishing he had stayed an amateur after his defeat by Scott in the qualifiers. Cliff Wilson (51), himself an old rival of Reardon's, will hope to restore some Welsh prestige in their nine-frame battle.
Two relative youngsters contest the other match at the expense of Willie Thorne and John Virgo , as another
Welshman, Wayne Jones (25), plays Peter Francisco (33), Silvino's nephew.
