Truly, Only The Strong Survive Here
22 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brrrr......you know it's really cold in this region.

In this remote part of the world where brutally cold temps and wind, along with darkness for over half the year, "only the strong survive" is more than just a cliché. In fact, the northern most wildness of this Russian region is least-visited area on the plant, we are told by the show's narrator.

It's a vast area, too: two million square miles, covering over twice the size of the United States. In it, though, are some amazing creatures like the Musk Ox, whose "hair" is eight times warmer than sheep. We see wolves and wolverines, seals and polar bears, snow geese, the arctic fox and even reindeer. In fact, one-fifth of the world's reindeer lives here. Perhaps the most interesting site was viewing all the walruses and their battle for space.

There are a few other animals and birds I'll leave for you to discover in this great-as-usual episode of "Wild Russia." Along with "Planet Earth," I believe "Wild Russia" is the best wildlife series I've ever seen. This was my last viewing of the six that were completed and I'm sorry to see them end. They are magnificent.
