Dylan Dreyer takes us to Southeast Asia where the diverse country of Malaysia calls home. We start in the trees where we meet some of the most interesting, and interesting looking, monkeys in the animal kingdom. These proboscis monkeys will show us how they gather food while escaping predators. Speaking of predators, we will then go into the rivers for a closer look at crocodiles who are hunting for their next meal. We then head up to the highest peak of Malaysian mountains where we find all types of wildlife, including the pitcher plant. We then head to the home of the Malaysian orangutan and try to escape the grip of their biggest predators.
Dylan Dryer takes us on an adventure to Thailand where we meet an array of exotic creatures. We begin with exploring the vast fields where local hog deer graze. But it's not always a safe meal for these deer, as they become the target for Indochinese tigers. We then head to the forest and see some of the world's most fascinating and oldest trees, which are home to all different types of monkeys. Gibbons and macaques live side by side in the canopy but have some unfriendly neighbors to deal with. We then head to the Kra Isthmus where we'll run into some incredible creatures who call the cave home.
Dylan Dreyer takes us on a journey to South America to the dense and crowded Amazon Rainforest. On this adventure, we will follow the sound of red howler monkeys that leads us high up in the canopy. Then we march down to the forest floor to get a closer look at a colony of army ants. These aren't the only small insects that we will see down below. We will also examine the relationship between wasps and tadpoles, as well as check out the daily activities of flies and stick ticks. After we are finished with the forest floor, we head back up to the trees where a harpy eagle is on the prowl for its next meal. This time, monkeys are on the menu, but are the monkeys quick enough to get away from this hungry harpy eagle? Plus, we head across the canopy to catch a glimpse of a slow-moving sloth.
We head to South America where the region of Patagonia hosts a variety of different animals. We start on the colder side of the region where penguins rule the land. There are millions of penguins here that almost outnumber the humans that live in Patagonia. We then visit another animal who hangs out in the water, the beaver. Its dams are spread across the region and will often affect the lives and homes of the local birds. The woodpecker is among the birds affected by the amount of beaver dams. We'll explore a day in the life of these woodpeckers to get a better understanding of their habits. We then head to the glaciers and ice fields that host a wide range of creatures. From flamingos to guanacos to pumas, these ice fields have some of the most diverse wildlife in Patagonia. We will then meet the people who live there, and explore their relationship with wild, as well as tamed horses.
We head to the Pantanal region of South America. The Pantanal is the biggest wetland on earth, but we begin with the animal that has more species than any other creature in the region: birds. Parakeets and parrots make their nests in the cliffs and trees, away from predators. But that doesn't mean that they are totally safe. Predators hunt for prey all over the Pantanal, and predators even hunt for each other. We'll see an epic showdown of power between a jaguar and a crocodile. We will then explore the circle of life that happens between the animals and locals in the beautiful South American region. From crocodiles to parrots, many different animals benefit from the relationship between the ranchers and their cattle. We then head back to the wetlands where crocs lay out in the sun next to storks, parakeets and a variety of different birds.
