Imagine if you could ‘see’ with sound, smell food buried deep underground, or see the world in slow motion. This series takes you beyond the limits of human perception to explore the extraordinary world of animal senses.
Our human senses are pretty incredible – but we only experience the tip of the iceberg. There is a hidden world that animals across the globe can access. In this series, biologist Patrick Aryee and physicist Helen Czerski explore the hidden world of animal senses.
Stories covered include how elephants can hear thunderstorms hundreds of miles away, how bees distinguish between complex pheromones and the bizarre deep-sea arms race that has forced an ocean giant to evolve the largest eye on our planet – the size of a human head!
Shot in a spectacular and contemporary way, the series showcases some of the wildest habitats on earth and gets up close to enchanting wildlife. Experiments revealing the science combine with the legendary filming techniques of the Natural History Unit.
BBC Earth is on Starhub Channel 407.
