World’s Sneaki­est An­i­mals

BBC2, 6.30PM

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Front Page -

Chris Pack­ham fea­tures a host of an­i­mals that use de­cep­tive tac­tics to find food. Some trick their prey, like the ma­nip­u­la­tive man­tis which looks like a flower and killer whales which set traps us­ing sound. Oth­ers cheat each other – sea ot­ters de­mand ran­soms af­ter kid­nap­ping each other’s pups – and some, like African bird the drongo and mon­keys, fool other species. In parks, mean­while, grey squir­rels are at war in steal­ing raids and it seems th­ese an­i­mal liars, cheats and hus­tlers re­ally will stop at noth­ing to get a meal.
