The Wonder of Animals celebrates the most successful animal groups on Earth - from apes to elephants, ants to bears. Host Chris Packham uses groundbreaking science and brand new animal behaviour research to delve deep beneath the skin and discover the unique features that have made certain animal groups survive and flourish, revealing how their unique characteristics have contributed to the species’ success.


Discover why, despite appearing clumsy and comical, penguins actually have an anatomy that is perfect for their environment, how the dominance of big cats is down to more than just their brawn and much more. Double episodes air weekly.
