Weird NatureThis BBC/DISCOVERY series reveals some of the strangest behaviour in the animal world. In a series of action-packed sequences, tyres fall from a truck and disturb salamanders, which turn into living wheels. Mexican jumping beans spring to life and take over a toy store. Fulmars use projectile vomit to attack a climber. Hagfish slime their way out of a fishing boat by turning water into mucus soup.

A skunk teaches the hardest street gang a lesson in break-dancing. Animal junkies get high on some strange drugs and we even discover nature's alcoholics. Using new filming techniques and some extraordinary special FX - this is nature as never seen before.

    Fantastic documentary. Super interesting with solid narrating and fantastic cinematography! Highly recommend to anyone looking for an animal doco. I love how they created mini scenarios to compare and show off each set of animal's unique traits. Can't believe this is only rated at 6.5 stars, 9/10 in my opinion.

    I found this to be an excellent documentary, but why does it only have 6.9 stars?!?

    This video hosting site is so slow as to be completely useless. The documentary is unwatchable on this hosting site.

    Ppl's expectations some times. I don't even think they know how the internet works, procedures, etc.

    Do they even teach kids how to use a dictionary, history of the dui decimal system, life before the internet or does this generation think information has come easily.

    My point being, this site is FREE. Vlatko does this for a hobby and probably enjoys informing and enlightening people from all over the world. Have some appreciation, friggin humans.
