This week, an exciting Science Night starts with part two of Nature’s three-part series, Natural Born Hustlers. This episode explores how animals adapt themselves to trap their next meal. Then, NOVA heads to Antarctica to search for a killer under the ice. Wrap up the night with an episode of Earth’s Natural Wonders about the wonder of water.
Animals the world over have adapted their bodies or behavior in extreme ways to create a tantalizing trap. It’s all the result of millions of years of artful adaptation — all in the name of luring in the next meal.
Dive under the ice to explore Antarctica’s under-ice landscape with a team of scientists as they search for the mystery killer that’s decimating the population of delicate shrimp-like creatures at the foundation of the Antarctic food chain.
Earth’s Natural Wonders Wonders Of Water at 9 p.m.
See wonders created by the grand and unpredictable power of water, including Victoria Falls, where men risk death to reach fishing pools; the Camargue, where man vs. bull; and ocean reefs, where a guardian seeks a manta ray to help save the species.
