Informative and funny (rhinos with small man syndrome commandeering some discarded antlers to woo a potential mate ...), David Attenborough continues his exploration of the continent in East Africa, which is a haven for life and supports a higher density of large mammals than anywhere else on Earth. From dense forests to snow-capped peaks, steamy swamps to endless savannah, it is also a land of unpredictable extremes, where creatures must adapt to survive. In Tanzania, a tiny lizard risks its life to eat flies from the face of a sleepy lion.
