Description: In THE SALAMANDER ROOM, viewers learn that there's more to creating an animal habitat than meets the eye. LeVar guides us through "JungleWorld," a simulated rainforest at the Bronx Zoo, and shows us how this incredible environment was created.

Activity Suggestion: Have students discuss how well they think the salamander coped in Brian's bedroom. What did Brian provide for the salamander? How had his room changed? How would they feel about living in Brian's room?
