On European Russia southwestern border with Transcaucasia and Asia, the Caucasus stretches from the Caspian Sea to the Black Sea. Its mountains and hills are quiet varied and rich in wildlife, some plant - and animal species like neighboring regions, some unique.

This amazing regions offers everything from the 15th lowest spot on the planet to majestic mountains that rival the Rockies. In fact, the latter - the Caucasus Mountains - have to be seen to be believed: an awesome sight considered to be the dividing line between Europe and Asia. Except for some unique Ibex, nothing else resides on these mountains.
In this large region, which is abundant with wildlife, there are some animals which can only been seen in this area, nowhere else in the world. The area resides in the southern part of Russia, near the Caspian Sea.
The photography in this episode of "Wild Russia" - the scenery and the closeups of some incredible animals and birds - is even better than shots I've seen in the great BBC series, "Planet Earth." I lost count how many times my jaw dropped admiring what they were showing.
Don't miss this one. I'm waiting for this series to come out on Blu-Ray, and hope that it does someday. If you like the above-mention "Planet Earth" series, you'll love this.
