sky

Get ready to brush feathers with the freakiest members of the winged world. Take a whirlwind tour of the planet's wackiest and most fearsome fliers. Check out dancing manikins that bust out the moonwalk to impress the ladies; shrikes that impale their prey before ripping it apart; and lyrebirds with enough snazzy solos for a whole glee club. Plus discover that the sky isn't just for the birds. Venture into treetops ruled by gliding snakes and rivers teeming with jumping carp staging an airborne invasion.

Two hundred million years ago there was an extraordinary development in the history of life: an ancient group of reptiles made a giant evolutionary leap into the skies.
