Plants' solutions to life's challenges are as innovative and manipulative as any animal's. Stunning time-lapse photography reveals a parallel world where plants act like fly-paper, or spring-loaded traps, to catch insects. The dragon's blood tree acts as an upturned umbrella to capture mist and shade its roots. The heliconia plant enslaves a humming bird and turns it into an addict for its nectar.
Marine invertebrates are some of the most bizarre and beautiful animals on the planet, and thrive in the toughest parts of the oceans. Divers swim into a shoal of predatory Humboldt squid as they emerge from the ocean depths to hunt in packs and watch as cuttlefish gather to mate, their bodies flash in stroboscopic colors. A giant octopus commits suicide for her young.
Mammals' ability to learn new tricks is the key to survival in the knife-edge world of hunters and hunted. In a TV first, a killer whale off the Falklands sneaks into a pool where elephant seal pups learn to swim and snatches them, saving itself the trouble of hunting in the open sea. Young ibex soon learn the only way to escape a fox is to run up an almost vertical cliff face.
