trying to do.

the hand on the barrels or equipment and hide behind them. Gonzales
must not be facing you when you sneak from one to the other. Hide
behind a barrel when you first enter the room. Go to the screen to the
east if Gonzales is reading his cookbook. If he takes too long on this
screen, it sometimes helps to get caught. Paquita will free you again
and Gonzales may be reading when you reenter. If Gonzales isn't
reading and not facing you, you can go east the following way: Enter
the screen by the rope ladder. Go as far into the distance as the game
allows, then go east. When you enter the next screen, click the hand
icon on the crates to hide if Gonzales is chopping vegetables. To

sack near Gonzale's cookbook to quiet them.
How do I get the grain?
If you just try to touch the grain, Gonzales will catch you. You
must suck up the grain with the hand vacuum that is on top of the
satellite platform. Climb up on the tower when Gonzales is out of

will not work. Talk to the little bat who is writing. He is the
Customs Official. Show him Forest Heart's amulet and he will give you
a job handing out bat visas. The bat visas are a stack of leaves next
to the Customs Official. Once you have passed out the visas to the
bats, you will be allowed to use an extra one to go through the
Which bat gets which visa?
There are many different kinds of bats in the rain forest. You
must match the correct visa to each bat. If you look at the leaf visas
in your inventory, you will find the Latin name of each type of bat.
Talk to all the bats to find out about them. Use the Ecorder on the
bats. Review the data in the Ecorder. The Ecorder information screen
about each bat includes its Latin name. Now you can match the leaves
and the bats. Don't forget to give one to Paquita!

the room at the top of the maze. Solve the jigsaw puzzle on the back
wall by clicking on the blocks. There are two pictures. Each time you
put one together, a hidden panel opens. You can take the crown, the

around in case you forgot anything. Go to the lake shore and click the
