Episode 2 – Reptiles and amphibians

Preview

From icy wastes to arid deserts, reptiles and amphibians have used their ancient, cold-blooded body plan and behavioural innovations to master the harshest environments on the planet. Using their ruthless hunting abilities, extraordinary camouflage, guile and downright physical toughness, they thrive where mammals and birds fear to tread. See Komodo dragons hunting buffalo, sea snakes with one of the most toxic venoms in the world that breed in caves, the seemingly suicidal leaps of a waterfall toad and lizards that can walk on water.
