Concluding Sir David Attenborough's overview of life on the planet, Life in Cold Blood tells the story of reptiles and amphibians. Using the latest technology, we watch as lizards bask in the rays of the sun to raise their temperature, see astounding action shots of frogs leaping in slow motion, and view beautiful time-lapsed photos of tadpoles growing inside eggs. Educational and entertaining, these 5 episodes on 2 discs will change your perceptions of cold-blooded creatures forever. Also included are behind-the-scene featurettes added to the end of each episode. Gord LaceyBuy [Life in Cold Blod on Amazon.com.
