Plot Synopsis

INTO THE WILD: COLOMBIA is a five-part documentary series that tells the stories of five very different groups of animals trying to survive the challenges presented by their homes, their neighbors, and sometimes even their own kind. Home to one in 10 of all species on the planet, Colombia is the second most biologically diverse country on Earth. Its combination of constant tropical temperatures and ample rain produces the perfect conditions for an explosion of life. But however rich the habitat may be, for its inhabitants, life is never easy. Watch as young tamarins face deadly boa constrictors, capuchins dodge hungry jaguars, capybaras share streams with caimans, and dazzling hummingbirds engage in an endless quest for nectar. In these unforgiving landscapes, stunning creatures and hidden dangers are waiting to be discovered around every corner. The series opener, "Romeo and Julieta," follows the journey of Julieta, a female golden dart frog in search of her Romeo. She must dodge countless dangers and battle the harsh elements if she hopes to find a mate to fertilize her eggs. The jungle is full of peril, and Julieta is just two inches long and less than an ounce in weight, but don't underestimate her powers: a single drop of the toxin that coats her skin is enough to stop a human heart.
On Wednesday, May 29, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT, Smithsonian Channel premiered "Finding a Family," the finale of INTO THE WILD: COLOMBIA, which ventures into a lush tropical forest on the northern tip of Colombia, the only place where the cotton-top tamarin -- one of the most endangered primates on the planet -- can be found in the wild. Follow the unforgettable journey of Mona, a young tamarin who has left the comfort of her family in search of a new troop and a future mate. Along the way, she must avoid forest dangers in the form of hawks, snakes, and even rival monkeys. With predators all around and no one to watch her back, it's a dangerous world for a tiny tamarin.
