The subtle nuances and hidden majesty of the natural world will now be revealed by using all of modern technology to manipulate time, light, and size in order to analyze the speed of life.

Some neat photography but I was totally put off by the sound track: non-stop threatening sounds drowning out the commentary that itself tried to make everything sound threatening. Juvenile.

Great wildlife film. Defiantly shud watch. Gives u a good understanding about the lives of some animals out there and wats its like to survive for them.

Full of camera tricks, this set of videos is all about the beasts eating the beast, or being themselves then eaten. It's all about the big scary world of predators and catching them on film. One of the neatest sequences is the centipede who eats the brain of the gecko (maybe that's where the zombie virus comes from?) and then gets munched himself by a frog. Oh well, that's life. In this video you won't learn much about animal life cycles or their ecosystems... another cool thing was seeing the tadpoles jump out of their eggs to evade the snake.
