Preview

Introducing the extraordinary things animals and plants must do in order to survive and reproduce. Witness amazing sights, captured at 1,000 frames per second: capuchin monkeys smashing open palm nuts with stone ‘hammers’, hippos launching from the water into the air and chameleons stealing prey from a spider’s web. Sprint with cheetahs as they band together to tackle ostriches, watch dolphins form perfect rings of silt to trap fish, and swim with a seal as it struggles to escape attacking killer whales among the Antarctic ice.
