Tails of the unexpected

Our experts reveal the fascinating features and adaptations that enabled certain creatures to survive through treacherous periods.


It has been estimated that 99% of all species that ever existed are now extinct. Of the creatures that are still with us today, there are a number that are dangerously close to extinction, but new species are being discovered at a surprisingly high rate. As we continue to explore the plethora of life on earth in more detail, our panel of experts reveal the fascinating features of those rare animals that we are in danger of losing and discuss the special features and adaptations that enabled certain creatures to survive through treacherous periods.
