The blue planet is full of secrets. Why do whale sharks prefer to gather off the Mexican coast? What does that have to do with the impact of a meteorite? And how could one of the most amazing tropical rainforests be completely forgotten? From the bizarre wildlife of the island of Sulawesi to the fearsome creatures of the Maya to the cloud-covered peaks of Africa - "Our Earth, the mysterious planet" takes viewers on a journey through the continents and their history.
David Schwimmer meets some of the strangest creatures on Earth: Dragons and zombie chicks, punk monkeys and hobbits -- the pig with tusks that pierce its forehead and a bird that rode on an island boat. These things really exist, but why only here?
David Schwimmer discovers why 400 whale sharks gather off the coast of Mexico, kind of like Woodstock but for sharks. From a meteorite hurtling through space, to a world of monsters and alien life forms, uncover the mysteries of these Caribbean giants.

Join David Schwimmer, pretend naturalist, in the Ethiopian Highlands, home to animals found nowhere else on Earth. In this high-altitude realm, geological forces create and destroy, and survival depends on sticking together and dominating your rivals.
