Abstract:

From the parched deserts of the southwestern U.S. to the lush forests of the Costa Rican mountains, this episode covers some of the most diverse ecosystems on the planet. The creatures here have adapted to survive in an extraordinary variety of habitats, and that means a diverse array of weapons. Witness animals equipped with poisonous toxins, a feline with the strongest jaws out of all the world's wildcats, and fish with stinging tentacles. You'll be dazzled by such creatures-both predators and prey-as the terraseal pillow viper, jaguar, poison dart frog, jumping viper, rattlesnake, yellow-bellied sea snake, hammerhead shark, Portuguese man-of-war, Humboldt squid, eyelash palm pit viper, harpy eagle, and American crocodile.
