In order to discover new things about the jungle biome, this intrepid adventurer took on the task of diving into the thick underbrush in search of exciting new wildlife.
The explorer was able to capture a few stills of a new species of jungle sheep. They appear to nest in ground-level bushes. They are assumed to be herbivores. More research must be done, however.
All contact was lost with the adventurer while he was climbing one of the massive Kapok trees. It is unknown whether the trees are carnivorous, home to thousands of flesh eating mites that attacked him upon contact with the bark, or if he simply fell from one of the limbs and splattered himself on the forest floor. Because it's very boring to be a biologist, we'll assume one of the cooler possibilities is what actually happened. Carnivorous half-plant-half-insect mites that camouflaged into the tree bark. Something like that.
Also, we're short on researchers. Can some of you perhaps go capture some snapshots of the jungle wildlife and make a report?
Ah, yes it appears to be. For now we'll refer to it as "jungle water". Drinking it or swimming in it seems to have hallucinogenic effects. A jungle sheep was observed bathing in the water for a time before getting out and stumbling into a pit, becoming trapped.
It's possible that the water is some sort of bait used to lure woodland animals into carnivorous pits, like the Sarlac in Star Wars.
That's nonsense, you say? Do I even have a degree in biology? I do, in fact. I wrote it this morning on a cocktail napkin. With crayon.
I believe there was a pig. Did you have any footage of that?
Yes, the pig is of the same species as those found in the Tundra. The Tundra Pig is believed to be invasive to the jungle, as it feeds upon the underbrush, destroying the habitat of the Jungle Sheep. In order to preserve the Jungle Sheep, it will be necessary to hunt the Tundra Pigs to extinction.
