Scintillating Saturday

Since next week is World Rainforest Week, here is a Scintillating Saturday rainforest post.
Yes, the Amazon River is “THE” river on this planet, but there is a second huge river in the Amazon rainforest. The Hamza River is roughly the same length as the Amazon River, which is 6,000 kilometers (3,728 mi) and ranges from about 200–400 kilometers (124–248 mi) wide.
So, why was this river not “found” until 2011? The Hamza River is an underground river.
