Few real animals for something about animals

"Having been impressed with a VHS video we were given, I bought two more juana DVDs. They were all good.
Finally, I thought to get the only one we didn't have, Conociendo A los Animales. It takes about 15 minutes before the kids even see a real live day-old chick, then later (briefly) two real goats.
One of the extra tipitipi scenes shows some puppies.
Caracas has quite a good zoo and Venezuela has plenty of wildlife, I was disappointed that this didn't show some more real animals. Maybe even a real iguana? A chiguire (capybara) or an anaconda?
My son has seen two real jaguars in Melbourne Australia, Juana just shows him the same man dressed up in a costume as in other episodes. Even the adult hen is a puppet, also a cow and burro feature as people in costume.
A gringo or Australian children's DVD about animals would certainly show a lot more real animals, I am sure.
My least favourite juana DVD/video.
