Anyone else enjoying this more than Galapagos on SKY? True, it's visually stunning, particularly if you have 3D, but it's just not nearly as funny or - at times - heart wrenching. Tonight, Attenborough witnesses the varied creatures of the Congo rainforest, one of the most competitive habitats on Earth. A sweet-toothed chimpanzee uses a complex array of tools to access honey from a beehive, the elusive picathartes bird feeds unsuspecting frogs to its dinosaur-like chicks and a massive female python reveals her maternal side as she sunbathes to incubate her eggs. Tiny leaf-folding frogs battle it out kung fu-style, and as darkness falls the forest elephants gather to face their rivals.
