Strange tales from the natural world

The natural world is full of shocking sights and wonderfully weird creatures and this fascinating programme travels the globe to showcase some of the most mind-blowing.

Nature’s Weirdest Events uses a combination of BBC Natural History Unit archive, amateur footage, eyewitness statements and expert analysis to investigate nature’s most curious and surprising stories.

This series explores the science behind such bizarre sights as a crab with blue blood, a virgin snake giving birth and stones that move across the desert by themselves.

When it comes to nature, this series proves that fact can often be a lot stranger than fiction!
