    Really Wild Animals: Adventures in Asia - Travel Video.  National Geographic.
     The Asian continent abounds in exotic animals from the large--giant pandas, elephants, and tigers--to the lower-profile-- macaques, sea snakes, and mudskippers.  Balancing the real with the fantastical (dragons and unicorns), this 38-minute tape from National Geographic explores the rich tapestry of Asian wildlife.     Narrator Spin--the animated planet Earth voiced by Dudley Moore--hops aboard a magic carpet and visits a variety of locations such as the South China Sea island of Tiga, where snakes gather to mate; Japan, where macaques (snow monkeys) lounge in hot springs during snowfall; and Borneo to fly through the trees with orangutans.    While adults might get dizzy with the leaps and quick cuts, the spurts of information are designed to keep young minds attentive.  And remember, the kids will watch these tapes repeatedly until they know each habit and habitat of these (really) wild animals.  60 minutes.
