Discovering The Sagittaria In Pandora: The World of Avatar

Guests of Disney's Animal Kingdom have the opportunity to explore a unique place that is truly out of this world. Pandora: The World of Avatar is an exciting place designed to be a foreign ecosystem of floating mountains, bioluminescent rainforests and breathtaking new experiences.

The land doesn't just glow and pulse with its alien atmosphere, but it is a truly interactive experience. Native plants and animals in the strange world interact as guest travel the paths throughout the Pandora's Valley of Mo'ara. Winding rainforest paths meander across the valley floor with spectacular vistas calling for you to look up and see the splendor, you also need to look forward, look down, and just try to take it all in.

On of my favorite little spots amongst the winding paths is an area that offers guests a glimpse into one of many waterfall fed ponds. Swimming through the clear water guests may come into contact with the Sagittaria. This creature is a cephalopod-like fellow with a hard shell and long tentacles. Despite being an aquatic creature, its prey is small flying creatures. They take down their prey by spurting out jets of water.

Obviously it's important to be on the lookout for the strange animals of Pandora, after all many of them are predators and you wouldn't want to fall pray to their hunt. Even walking too close to the edge of the water may trigger the hunting instinct of native creatures. Luckily Alpha Centari Expeditions posts warnings in the most "dangerous" areas.

This pond contains animals that shoot powerful jets of water into the air to hunt small flying creatures. Sudden arm movements close to the pond may trigger this hunting response. You may get wet!
