The Christmas Island red crab is a land bound crab that still has strong ties to the ocean, the only place where they can give birth to their young.
5 ep. - Fatal Attractions
Ain't love grand? Well, to many animals in the wild, attracting a mate and getting the chance to breed is more like a blood sport. The mating urge drives animals to make long journeys, to let down their guard in the presence of predators, and even to fight each other to the death.
6 ep. - Army of The ants
A deadly predator is stalking the forests of Costa Rica. No, it's not a jaguar, it's a super organism made up of half a million tiny individuals -- an army ant colony.
7 ep. - Elephants On The Edge
On the edge of the Sahara Desert in Mali, a society struggles to thrive. This isn't a society of humans but of rare desert elephants. More than just a herd of animals, they are a tribe of extended families and comrades with their own unique culture.
8 ep. - Kings of The Canopy
Who says everything happens on the ground? And who says you need wings to fly? Welcome to the canopy of the Borneo rainforest, where the best action is high in the air, swinging from branches and leaping through the treetops. Animals here do everything without ever touching the ground.

Life is risky, and no stage of life is riskier than the very beginning. Most animals are born frail, vulnerable, and with a lot of learning to do. But life doesn't go easy on the newcomers.
10 ep. - Deadly Gamblers
When you've got it all, why would you give it all up? We expect animals to take the path of least resistance -- choosing the easiest and surest ways to get food, safety and comfort. But animals aren't always so predictable.
