Theme: An animal habitat must provide what the animal needs to live. 83 Sam the Sea Cow

A young boy finds a salamander and thinks of the many things he can do to make a perfect home for it.

Viewers learn that there is more to creating an animal habitat than meets the eye as LeVar explores Jungle World, a rain forest environment created at the Bronx Zoo in New York, and they learn about scientists who use a treetop raft as a lab to study the rain forest ecosystem.
