Episode Information

Not all of nature’s greatest spectacles are the largest, but there’s no doubt that we’re still drawn to the biggest and bulkiest animal displays. When these titans get together their impact can be huge – even shaking the ground. But when smaller species get together their combined forces can be even greater. The tiny creatures can be so numerous that combined, they outweigh the giants, and play just as big a role in shaping our world. Amazingly, it’s not the biggest beasts that have the greatest impact – take a moment to consider us humans. We make up less than 0.01% of all life, and yet we shape the world more than any other. Whether as part of their place in the food chain or their impact on their habitat, most mega fauna lives in harmony with natural systems. Watch out for the swarm – mega nature is on the move.
