Spy in the Wild
Premieres 16th October, Mon - Fri @ 9PM, on Wild Wild Earth. For the first time, robotic spy-creatures take us on an entertaining journey into the lives of animals and reveal just how similar they are to us. How different are we to our animal cousins? Do they experience the same kind of emotion and intellect that we do? Meet the elephant aunts who act as midwives, the bowerbirds gathering trinkets to impress the ladies, the hippos having pedicures, the monkeys getting drunk and disorderly and chimpanzee policemen laying down the law. These moments, captured by a new generation of spy cameras, not only reveal a lot about animal behaviour, they also hint at how similar each beautiful form of life truly is.
