A BBC/Discovery Channel Co-Production. The African savannah is constantly changing and often unpredictable. To survive here, creatures must be able to adapt as the region transforms from lush grasslands to dry, cracked earth. From dense forests to snow-capped peaks, it's feast or famine in the eastern part of the African continent, producing some of nature's ultimate daredevils and survivors. Brazen agama lizards hunt for flies on the backs of sleeping lions. At more than four feet tall and with a massive bill, the shoebill is not only one of the most bizarre-looking birds on the planet, but also one of the most secluded. In the skies, birds of prey stalk the largest mammal migration in the world, all while bull elephants engage in tusk-shattering battles on the plains below.
