Animal Planet to showcase lives of most enigmatic creatures in 13-part series

Animal Planet, which is a joint venture between Discovery Communications and BBC Worldwide, will present a new 13-part weekly series ‘Planet Wild’ starting from December 31, to be aired every Friday at 8 pm. Each episode of the series will try to showcase the planet’s most enigmatic creatures, revealing their struggle to survive, their diverse habitats and their interaction with their neighbours.

The first episode will focus on giant ground squirrels from the northern plains of Central Kazakhstan, who live in a close-knit family and survive through foxes, eagles and the discomfort of fleas and mosquitoes. An episode on koalas will feature the breeding season of the mammal, where a koala mother waits for a suitor to arrive, and her son thereby moving out due to the new love interest.

The third episode ‘Lynx: Predator Nursery’ shows northern lynx as the largest predator in the forest. Baby lynxes will be shown venturing out learn the tricks of the trade in the harsh forest. An episode on city sparrows will delve into the relationship between the bird and humans, and will highlight one lucky chick that lands onto a keeper, who becomes a round-the-clock surrogate mother.

Other episodes will showcase the strong family bonds of dolphins, the competition among hummingbirds for nectar, the hierarchal battles among wild boars, the exceptional sole survival of flamingoes in the hostile volcanic soda lakes of East Africa, and the hardships of penguins in the Antarctic, among others.
