About this product

Monkey Planet is a stunning visual experience that explores the amazing world of primates and reveals just what makes our animal family so special.

Zoologist Dr George McGavin presents a three-hour exploration of the whole primate family, including strange lemurs, acrobatic monkeys, and the enigmatic apes.

From the snowy mountains of Japan to the windswept savannah of South Africa, this series uncovers the secrets of the primate family success: ingenious survival tactics and extraordinary physical adaptations; fascinating family lives that mirror ours in so many ways; and highly intelligent, flexible minds that show that the smartest primates are more like us than you’d ever think possible.

Dr McGavin discover the ninja tarsier, a spring-loaded ambush predator the size of a tennis ball, the magnificent herds of geladas in the mountains of Ethiopia. Then there are baboons with a hunger for flamingo flesh; macaques with criminal minds; fluorescent mandrills who wear war-paint to do battle; and Ardry, a real life gremlin who 'sees' the unseeable with her 'extra-terrestrial' fingers.
