Croc Caves of Ankarana

We traveled over 2 KM, in absolute dark, through an underground river full of bats, eels and blind fish to find one of the rarest Crocs in the world.

Monarch Butterfly

Weighing no more than a paperclip, this unbelievable insect makes a 4500 km journey that absolutely boggles the mind.

Red Roughed Lemur

They are one of the rarest lemurs in the world. And to see one, you have to go to a small Island off the coast of Madagascar. Then maybe... just maybe - you'll see one!

Adélie

The cutest penguin of them all! Imagine standing amongst a hundred thousand birds in one of the most remote places on the planet. This is bucket list stuff.

The Hippo Whisperer

Jane Goodall and her son, Grub, are trying to save a hippo sanctuary in Southern Tanzania. We went to tell their incredible story and meet the man they call “The Hippo Whisperer!”

Imagine going for a swim in the ocean and looking up to see this guy staring at you? Good thing you wont, since Telescopefish are usually found in cold, deep tropical waters. And those eyes that look more like pearls, actually have a super power. They have the ability to see electric charges of its prey from great distances. And that comes in real handy when you live in the dark!

He looks sad kind of. Like he needs a friend. (I'm not volunteering, just pointing it out lol)

That would keep me up at night! There’s a reason I don’t watch horror films. I think they may get some of their inspirations from creatures such as this!

Puffer fish are, of course, most famous for their ability to “puff” themselves up and look like a giant baloon when attacked. Yet they also have a lesser known, downright artsy side. There are 120 species of puffer fish. The Japanese puffer fish uses his fins to dig furrows in the seabed, eventually creating large, intricate sand sculptures. And the reason for these artisitc masterpieces is for one reason - to catch the eye of a female! Basically they are saying to possible mates... "Hey look here, see what I can do?" Incidentally, when first found, these creations were often called “underwater crop circles,” as researchers struggled to make sense of how they so mysteriously appeared and then vanished. Now we know!

A Mandrill bearing its extraordinarily long, sharp canines!
One look at this picture and you can see why Mandrill's were once classified as baboons - but they now have their own genus (Mandrillus), and are the world's largest monkey.
