Attenborough and the Giant Egg
Fifty years after collecting a giant fossilised egg in Madagascar,
David Attenborough returns to discover the fate of the largest birds to ever live on the planet.
An astonishing series revealing the extraordinary wildlife and dramatic landscapes of one of the world??s most bizarre islands. Lying just off the coast of Africa, Madagascar is a land of misty mountains, tropical rainforests and weird spiny desert scrub. Here the wildlife has evolved in splendid isolation to become strange and totally unique.
The series captures, sometimes for the first time, the diverse and rare wildlife that inhabits this incredible land. It features amazing footage of the lemur ?? a monkey-like group of creatures made up of 100 different species unique to the island ?? but also reveals frogs that turn from brown to bright yellow; wasps that pluck tadpoles from tree-nests and fish that swim upside down, as well as following the romantic life of the world??s tiniest chameleon. Madagascar is an ambitious and intimate portrait of a fascinating but perilously fragile island ?? one of the few places left on Earth where there are still wildlife mysteries waiting to be discovered.
