Be The Creature
(discovery Kids, HyppTV Ch 561, 6pm) Lemurs – In this episode, documentary filmmaking brothers Chris and Martin Kratt continue their exploration of animals’ unique biology, physiology, natural behaviour and adaptations – this time taking them to exotic Madagascar. They traverse the cloud forest in the north down to the desert in the south in search of the endangered lemur descendants of the proto-lemur. They are believed to be the first lemur species to have inhabited the island over 70 million years ago. In the depths of the forest, the Kratts find lemurs that were thought to have died out 20 years ago, while gaining insights into the habitats of this primate, whose distinctive features are its long tail and human-like hands.
