From Strange Birds To The Mystery Of Easter Island
The vast Pacific, with over 25,000 islands according to narrator Mike Rowe, has more than enough amazing sights to entertain us with another great HD nature series. This episode focuses on some strange creatures who have changed and adapted according to their climates and terrains.
In New Guinea, we see the Dingiso, which is a tree kangaroo In New Caldedonia, we witness birds, big and small, who don't fly. Without predators, they haven't needed to so apparently they've forgotten how to fly. They just bounce along on the ground! I think they were called Kagoos (spelling?).
Anyway, New Caledonia is just beautiful, as are the Solomon Islands, the next place visited on this show. There, we see "skinks."
Later, the show visits New Zealand and Hawaii, where you see fantastic scenery and some unique birds and animals (i.e., the world's fattest owl.) The final stop is the famous Easter Island, "the most remote Pacific Island" of them all and home to those amazing huge stone statues. The story of Easter Island is given here, but a new theory on what might have been the inhabitants demise. I won't say what it is;just watch the show, which is pretty interesting.
Unlike the other nature shows (Planet Earth,Wild Russia and now "Life,"), this one also shows some humans. In this case, we see primitive tribes doing a form of bungee jumping but with a purpose in mind other than thrills. It's kinda strange, but that's why it is featured on this TV show, titled "Wild Pacific" here in the States.
