Episode 4: Deserts
In this episode, we visit the world’s deserts, a land of extremes. Animals here have developed ingenious ways of dealing with hostile conditions – giving rise to the most incredible survival stories. A pride of desert lions is so hungry they risk hunting a giraffe several times their size. Male sand grouse fly nearly 200 kilometers each day from their nests to the nearest waterhole, simply to collect water for their chicks – and when they arrive there are predators waiting for them. And, never filmed before, a tiny bat takes on the deadliest scorpions just to get a meal.
