The Amazing Sights On Planet Earth
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
23 March 2010
Another high definition nature series? Fine, bring 'em all on.....they
First it was "Planet Earth," then "Wild Pacific" and "Wild Russia," and
now this....more spectacular, unbelievable pictures of the creatures
who roam our earth, from the tiniest to the biggest.
In this opening episode, about the challenges of staying alive on this
planet, were see three hungry cheetahs taking down a big ostrich; a
chameleon with long, long, accurate tongue; a baby Ibex in Israel,
escaping a wolf thanks to the Ibex's incredible climbing ability on
cliffs; fish with wings that fly away from predators; an amazing tiny
mother red frog and the lengths she goes to in protecting her babies;
An "octo mom" - the real thing - an octopus who only gives birth once,
but to 100,000 eggs; a fly who stretches his eyeballs out to great
length to impress females (and it works!); Two hundred hippos in one
spot: 199 females and one dominant (ya think?) male!; examples of the
intelligence of one group of dolphins and tiny monkeys.....and more.
This was an excellent opening episode and it looks like this series
will be the equal of the other outstanding ones mentioned above. See it
in HD, if you can - it's really beautiful.
