These Guys Have Been Around A L-o-n-g Time
3 April 2010 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Mammals are warm-blooded, get milk from their mamas, were around 225 million years ago and are still here! So starts this interesting episode of "Life," the successor to the famous BBC series "Planet Earth."

This episodes takes us to places like Madagascar, Africa, Antarctica, the Arctic and a few places. We see amazing mammals like something called the "eye-eye" (no idea of the correct spelling), the Elephant Shrew, a migration of eight million reindeer, a nighttime fight between lions and hyenas; polar bears trying to survive, Meerkats, Wetar seals, hippos in clear water getting cleaned by small fish, and the largest mammals of them all: elephants and humpback whales.

As usual, the episode is beautifully filmed.
