Summary
The story of 4,000 species from the smallest to the largest and how they have survived and populated every part of the globe. See how their adaptations for finding food have affected the way they move, socialize, mate, and breed.
In ten parts, the award-winning David Attenborough (2002 Emmy winner for The Blue Planet: Seas of Life; The Life of Birds) introduces us to the most diverse group of animals ever to live on Earth, from the smallest--the two-inch pygmy shrew--to the largest--the blue whale; from the slowest--the sloth, to the swiftest--the cheetah; from the least attractive--the naked mole rat, to the most irresistible--a human baby. The Life of Mammals is the story of 4,000 species that have outlived the dinosaurs and conquered the farthest places on earth. With bodies kept warm by thick coats of fur and their developing young protected and nourished within their bodies, they have managed to colonize every part of the globe, dry or wet, hot or cold. Their adaptations for finding food have also had a profound effect on the way they move, socialize, mate and breed.
