EVOLVE is an
informative series that takes a closer look at anatomy in the animal
It’s a tough,
violent, and lethal world out there, and it’s been that way since
the dawn of time. Roughly 99 percent of all species have become
extinct. What enabled that other one percent to survive the
cutthroat competition? Their ability to.... EVOLVE.
Through a stunning combination of dramatizations, computer
animations, live action nature footage and lab work, discover the
biological and behavioral innovations that have kept us all on this
there are 11 episodes, which are available to buy in this
compilation box set.
EYES: Seeing is believing … not to mention
evading, eating and surviving! Learn how the eyeball evolved
from ancestors of jellyfish who developed light-sensitive
cells to the unique adaptations that allowed primates to
better exploit their new habitat, while the ability to see
colors helped them find food.
• SEX: Sex is a necessity for most species
to survive. As evolution continues, are we approaching a time
when sex will no longer be a necessity? How is this possible?
• SIZE: How do we measure up? Understand
the amazing processes that gave us vertebrates smaller than a
thumbnail (a Cuban frog) and longer than a diesel locomotive
(a blue whale). But what are the mechanisms of these
adaptations, the evolutionary pressures that effect size, and
the physical limits life can attain?
• SKIN: Skin is absolutely amazing, far
more complex and versatile than we ever give it credit for. It
makes up 16% of your body weight, is the largest organ in the
human body, allows birds to fly, mammals to nurse their young,
and provides a lifelong defense against predators and
• FLIGHT: In this high-flying episode,
unearth the secrets, and the continuing mysteries, of the very
first vertebrate flyer, the pterosaur, which escaped its
earthly bounds 220 million years ago. This creature eventually
evolved into flying Goliaths the size of small planes!
• COMMUNICATION: Communication isn’t just
the key to a good relationship; it also goes a long way toward
ensuring the success of a species. While humans, comfortable
at the top of the food chain, have made the most out of this
particular evolutionary achievement, organisms everywhere -
from dolphins to amoebae - can be found speaking to one
• GUTS: It doesn’t just take willpower to
survive. It takes guts. Life needs energy to exist and almost
all animals get their energy in the same way – with a built in
power plant, a digestive system that turns food into fuel.
Take a close look at the role guts have played in shaping some
of Earth’s most successful animals: dinosaurs, snakes, cows,
• VENOM: The deadliest natural weapon
employed in the animal kingdom has independently evolved in
creatures as diverse as jellyfish, insects, snakes, and even
mammals. Scientists from around the globe show how evolution
adapted venom to fit the needs of the animals who wield it.
• SPEED: The ability to react and move can
often mean the difference between life and death in the animal
kingdom. Some animals have evolved into championship fliers,
swimmers, and runners. What are the forces that create this
need for speed, and how do animal bodies adapt to go into
• JAWS: Get ready to pry open some of the
deadliest jaws on the planet as we expose this fierce and
ferocious anatomical weapon. Sharp, menacing and more than an
eating apparatus, the jaws of many animals are key to their
survival. Go back along the evolutionary line to discover how
various jaws developed in the first place.
