The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a dated picture, with images that can be slightly soft and hazy. That said, detail is nicely rendered, especially close ups of those amphibians (and reptiles and creepy crawlies). Though slightly dull and wanting in definition, colors are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Visual information tends to get lost in the darker scenes. For its age, the picture looks quite good. There are few distractions in the way of pixelization or edge enhancement, though source element artifacts are occasionally bothersome.
