By 8 million years ago, the cat family had conquered Asia and Africa, but next, it would venture in a new world: the Americas.

The North Atlantic is driven by the mighty Gulf Stream, a colossal course of warm water more powerful than all the world's rivers combined.
Explore the longest mountain range on Earth, the undersea Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which drives life throughout the ocean.
Life in paradise comes at a cost. As the tropical Atlantic's weather changes, everything and everyone must find ways to survive one of the most powerful forces on the planet — the hurricane.
With sunshine, sandy beaches and palm trees, South Africa's East Coast is a true paradise. Reptiles thrive in the hot weather of the mangroves and the bayous.
From the savanna to the desert, the heart of South Africa is home to everything from successful hunters and extremely odd animals. Due to the short, intense rainy season the vast semi deserts and dry savannas of South Africa's interior become a perfect setting for one of the most colorful natural spectacles on the planet.
The Amur is the longest border river in human history: Over a stretch of two thousand kilometres, it separates two superpowers, Russia and China. In China, the meandering Amur is called the Black Dragon. Ferries cross between the only two cities along the Amur's middle course, Blagoveshensk and Heihe, but not a single bridge links the countries. The border land along the Amur and some of its tributaries offer sanctuary to wildlife, and it's also the border situation that has, so far, kept the Amur free of hydro-electric dams.
The Amur is not just a river -- it's a sprawling network of thousands of tributaries, wetlands and lakes, a river system of continental scale, all funneled into a single gigantic channel spilling one million olympic pools of water, sediment and nutrients into the Pacific Ocean, day after day. The Amur thus nurtures one of the earth's richest seas. It's the massive clouds drifting back inland from the Pacific that have kept the Amur River's myriad tributaries flowing for millions of years. And it is from here, the Amur's estuary on the wild and rugged coast of Russia's Far East, that we set out on an epic upstream journey.
The lines and shapes of the natural world may seem chaotic, but there is order and reason behind everything in nature. Discover the surprising truths behind our planet's secrets in its design.
Some of the most important scientific discoveries have come from evolutionary adaptations that already existed in nature. While we still have much to learn, a new kind of science is coming to life, one which is adopting nature's most ingenious designs.
Brazil has a river that is bigger than the Amazon. However, this river isn't where you would normally expect. To find it, you'll need to look up to the water-laden clouds that flow into the heart of Brazil. There is so much water in the clouds that they act like a river flowing overhead.
Untamed wilderness around distinctive rocks touched by the golden glimmer of sunset: this gorgeous view could only be of the Dolomites. Pale, glowing perpendicular walls reflect a sense of mystery, of fantasy, even of fear. It's a place for myths and fairy tales, and there's no shortage of them here.
After reaching adulthood, a young male baboon, Wahou, searches for a new troop after being forced from his clan.
