Animals are capable of doing so many things humans could never imagine possible. Animal Planet will share the fascinating answers to the most curious questions about animal habits in the returning series, HOW DO ANIMALS DO THAT?, which premieres Friday, August 23 at 8 PM ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes each week.

Why do cats meow? Why do scorpions glow in the dark? How do koalas keep cool? How are vultures immune to disease? Why do turtles cry? Why do roosters crow just before dawn? The unique habits of all these animals will be on full display in HOW DO ANIMALS DO THAT? as mysteries are explored and the natural world is seen up close, with rare footage of animals captured in new and surprising ways.

HOW DO ANIMALS DO THAT? is produced for Animal Planet by WAG TV where Jon Stephens and Steven Green serve as executive producers. Lisa Lucas is the executive producer for Animal Planet, with Patrick Keegan as supervising producer.
