Equator - Rivers of the Sun

Rovník - Řeky slunce

The largest rainforest on Earth, expanding on the Equator in Amazon, is the cradle for the most abundant biota in the world that has been evolving for eons. Formed by the upheaval of the Andes Mountains, the monsoon provides the Amazon with a tremendous volume of rain, overflowing the river. Surrounding forests are submerged underwater for as long as six months. This forest is the most abundant paradise for creatures in the Amazon offering the driving force for evolution of the species here.
