Episode InformationDriven by surging hormones, every creature on the planet, big or small, will do whatever it takes to find and secure a mate. For some this will take the fight of their lives, while others must preen, prance and party their way to success. From one night stands and group sex to lifelong love and unbreakable bonds, when it comes to finding a mate the animal kingdom has it all. The need to breed manifests itself in all sorts of wonderful antics, displays and behaviours. Camels drool at eli-gible mates, rifle birds hold a dance off, and in bonobo society pretty much anything goes! But whether conflict, love or a mixture of the two is the route to a mate, passing on DNA is a vital part of nature's journey – and there’s always a remarkable story to tell. So keep an eye out for those sexy beasts, they're full of weird and wonderful surprises!
