|Three years in the making, producer John Downer has used a brand new filming technique to show animal movement in 3-D. Using this incredible visual imagery, the programme juxtaposes man and animals to see which is the weirdest community on the planet. |
Discover dancing scorpions, courting birds that give trinkets as gifts, mice that mate themselves to death and a mantis that eats its partner. This exploration of strange behaviour reveals nature’s bizarre breeding rituals.
Meet frogs that rear their young under their skin, fish that leap from the water to lay eggs on leaves and a bullfrog father that becomes lifeguard to his offspring. There are fish that change sex, others that bubble-wrap their young, male hamsters that act as midwives and even a male that becomes pregnant. And, in this weird world, discover a shrew that creates a living daisy chain of its own young.
Discover skunks that handstand, crabs that dress up and fish that are slime monsters. This exploration of strange animal behaviour reveals the bizarre ways animals defend themselves.
Meet an armadillo that can roll into an impregnable ball, owls and frogs that puff themselves up and a cobra that spits venom. There are fish that can copy a chequered board, octopus that shape-shift and creatures that can turn inside out. There are even birds that use projectile vomit or repulsive missiles and creatures that turn playing dead into a performance to die for.
