[edit] Information

Mutant Planet: Series 1 It has been estimated that there are between 3 and 30 million different species on Earth and this is before we take into account microorganisms and creatures in the deep sea. The biodiversity of our planet is of great interest in our modern day world, as we try to make sense of climate change and the impact we have on fragile ecosystems. All over the planet there are diverse of eco-regions, each with their own set of inhabitants uniquely suited to thrive in their special surroundings; tailor-made to survive against all odds. Mutant Planet transports you to these worlds within worlds where nature and evolution have combined to shape astounding animals with ingenious lifestyles and unorthodox patterns of behaviour. Follow us as we take you on a journey through some of the most astounding locations to experience the lives of nature’s most extreme creatures. Back in October of this year Discovery Channel renamed The Hub to Discovery Family and started airing Discovery content on it. One of the shows they air on Discovery Family is called "Survival of the Weirdest". As it turns out, it is Mutant Planet for since the show has been called Mutant Planet for four years since its season 1, and to stop any confusion I am still releasing the HDTV series has Mutant Planet.

[edit] New Zealand

New Zealand is a fairytale archipelago with a turbulent geological past. A land with astonishing creatures: flightless birds, night dwellers and even living fossils. Evolution has run wild on this isolated land, producing some of the world's most unusual animals.

[edit] Australia

Australia is a floating laboratory whose ancient geological past and changing climate have triggered mutations in the animals here, culminating in over 200 species of bizarre pouched marsupials, which are all equipped with astounding survival features.

[edit] Brazils Cerrado

On Brazil's ancient Cerrado grassland a community of eccentric creatures are all inter-dependent, and all life revolves around the landscape of mysterious mud-caked monoliths.

[edit] Africas Rift Valley Lakes

Africa's freshwater Great Lakes are the birthplace of the biggest, fastest, and perhaps the strangest mutation of any vertebrate on Earth. Could these fish actually be as intelligent as chimps?

[edit] Madagascar

In this episode we travel to Madagascar the land of lemurs, an ancient primate family that evolved from only one small group which arrived on the island more than 60 million years ago. For them Madagascar became the land of evolutionary opportunity and today there are almost 100 living species.

[edit] Japan

Isolated from the Asian mainland, Japan's animals have been forced to endure the most violently active islands on earth in a climate of extremes. Animals cast away on these outcrops must find innovative ways to overcome periods of starvation.
