Episode InformationWe love to measure aspects of life at its extremes. The biggest, the tallest, heaviest, fastest, slowest – even the rarest. The creatures that hold the records for these categories are some of the most interesting in the natural world. Some are familiar and iconic, but it’s also important to recognise some of the more surprising record breakers. These quirky and unusual animals that often go ignored are inventive, ingenious and awe-inspiring. We all know about the peregrine’s dives and the cheetah’s speed, but the animal record books hold so much more. From the great albatross that can cover 800 kilometers in a day, to the humble aphid, that left to its own devices could produce eight billion tons of offspring! Forget what you thought you knew about the natural world and get ready for the wild and wacky animal record breakers.
