PBS Nature - Cuba: Wild Island of the Caribbean

Outside the world of politics, Cuba is perhaps best known for its culture, cigars and classic cars. But it is also a tropical paradise, the largest and most unspoiled island in the Caribbean, and home to an array of uniquely Cuban wildlife. Through a special arrangement with the Cuban government, unprecedented access was granted to film the astonishing diversity of life on the island, ranging from the incredibly small to the unimaginably large - including pea-size frogs, butterfly bats, leaping crocodiles, millions of land crabs, tiny bee hummingbirds, a colony of 100,000 flamingos, and 450-pound fish.
