Un amanecer en la selva es el inicio de una sinfonía de la vida. Parvadas de aves vuelan sobre las copas de los árboles buscando su alimento. Pero, al anochecer la vida nocturna es una sinfonía aún más compleja con la actividad de numerosos insectos , reptiles y anfibios. En este conjunto de sonidos destacan los sonoros bramidos de los monos aulladores.
