‘NATURE’ is an informative and eye opening TV series about the weird and wonderful animals inhabiting our planet.

The 35 season, 304 episode show gives a new insight on creatures from all over the world including snakes, pandas and even bird eating spiders.

The series has been running since 1982 – back then it was called ‘Animal Misfits’ – and is showing no signs of stopping soon. Season 35 launched this year and there are a few seasons available on the popular streaming service Netflix.

Patricia Clarkson narrates the documentary, consistently giving brand new facts, explanatory commentary and even adding some humour to the more weird animals captured on film.

Episode One – which has a run time of 1 hour – of the most recent season is titled ‘Super Hummingbirds’ and perfectly encapsulates the extraordinary traits of the hummingbird as a species.

The episode includes some glorious fast paced camera work and spectacular slow motion footage of the hummingbird in flight.

We can see what makes this creature truly weird and wonderful. The only bird known for the ability to fly backwards, upside down and even float in mid air is displaying on our screen and we are mesmerised by it’s natural born super powers.

This series is definitely worth watching – you will be consistently fascinated and maybe even shocked at finding out what animals are really capable of.

Even if you only watch to find out some bizarre facts about your favourite animal or to increase your wildlife knowledge for a future pub quiz,  this show has everything you could possibly want to discover about animals and then some.
