Summary
Naturalist, writer, and filmmaker David Attenborough hosts a study of mammal species found throughout the world, describing their lifestyles, habitats, physical characteristics, and distribution. Introduces us to the most diverse group of animals ever to live on this planet. From the smallest to the largest, from the slowest to the fastest, from the least attractive to the most irresistible. Looks at 4,000 species, including ones that have outlived the dinosaurs and conquered the farthest places on Earth. Examine how their adaptations for finding food have had an effect on the way they socialize, mate and live
Additional physical form
Also issued on VHS.
