A BBC/Discovery Channel Co-Production. Although water in Africa's ancient southwest corner is in short supply, the deserts remain full of life. The program takes a special look at how creatures living in the Kalahari have become masters at adapting. The extreme danger of the Kalahari manifests itself as the presentation witnesses the most violent giraffe fight ever filmed. Clever meerkats are outsmarted by an even more clever bird, which mimics the meerkats' calls and robs their food. Black rhinos, ordinarily a very stubborn and solitary animal, gather at the last great watering hole for a surprisingly social gathering, shedding new light on one of the world's most endangered creatures. Animals living in the world's oldest desert have gone to the extremes to defend scarce resources and survive. NOTE: This program contains content that portrays animals in their natural environment and may be disturbing or inappropriate for some viewers. Please preview before showing in class.
