David Attenborough has spent a lifetime documenting the natural world, meeting a great number of extraordinary creatures.

We discover the amazing frog that freezes solid to survive winter, and the female Komodo dragon’s ability to reproduce without ever meeting a male. Other curiosities include some of nature’s great tricksters and two creatures that have attracted an undeserved bad reputation. David takes viewers on a special journey through the weird and wonderful natural world to find out more. More
