In series one, Sir David Attenborough uncovered the stories behind some of natureâs most baffling and intriguing creatures. Now in this bigger second series he uncovers more curious tales from the natural world. From the ambitious and ultimately fatal journey to bring Emperor penguin eggs back from the South Pole to the role the electric eel played in our understanding of electricity, series two features creatures that have attracted the attention of great scientists and explorers. The 10-part series follows Sir David as he travels across the UK to explore animal oddities that other TV programmes simply do not cover. Each episode features two different animals with curiously distinctive evolutionary quirks, linked together by a common theme. Sir David looks at the emperor penguin and the wood frog, both of which survive in conditions so cold they seem to defy the laws of nature; the rhino and the hedgehog, two animals that hide behind seemingly impenetrable armoured coats; and gorillas and vampire bats, who both have unfairly gained frightening reputations within the animal kingdom.

As a massive Attenborough fan I've snapped this up to go with the rest of my collection. In these series' of 30 minute episodes he explores two animals that are linked together by an evolutionary adaption, how it has helped them survive and how truly remarkable these creatures are. I love the historical content and cannot believe the amount of information he manages to convey in a shorter amount of time compared to his larger hour long series'.
Brilliant as per usual, truly fascinating and Sir David is a delight, would recommend to anyone.

Very interesting format than enables a lot of new research to be shared with the audience. Each episode concentrates on a different subject (or subjects) and includes giving some historical context on why particular animals have created scientific curiosity at different times. For natural science lovers this will not disappoint.

David is constantly looking for another perspective on our world. Here he takes a closer look at these "curiosities" rather than the brief visits he usually does. Admittedly, I was not as satisfied with the chosen animals, because they are already well-known. I was expecting more unknown animals Ive never seen before. But, still it was very interesting and I enjoyed David unique style of presentation. If you are a collector of Attenborough's works, this is well worth adding to your collection.
