Mutant Planet 2

Image 1 / 10

‘Mutant Planet’ reveals why nature allows strange and eccentric animals and their patterns of behaviour to flourish through the miracle of natural selection. Each episode takes audiences on a journey to understand the powerful forces that create the mysteries of evolution. In Africa’s Albertine Rift, immense geological forces have created a huge variety of landscapes and transformed the climate. The unique residents of this evolutionary hotspot have been shaped by the Rift and evolved bizarre and unusual ways to survive. India’s stunning Western Ghats, sustained by the life-giving monsoon, feature an array of beautiful creatures that evolve various ingenious sways of surviving in this hostile environment where predators are abundant and competition for food is fierce. Other locations featured are the incredibly bio-diverse Costa Rica, the world’s oldest desert in Namib, the Tibetan plateau and the evolutionary melting-pot Borneo.
