Episode Summary

Nature's Habitats
Discover a miniature universe within our world teaming with life. Using remarkable micro and macro photography learn how some of the smallest and perhaps most bizarre members of the animal kingdom construct different styles of shelter around the world. See miniscule architectural designers use their sophisticated skills and materials around them to build incredible structures. In this episode, female potter wasps use a ceramics technique to build mud pots to house their eggs, blind termites build complex skyscrapers with their own system of air-conditioning, and black fly larvae withstand the force of water to protect their homes by producing silk lifelines. Follow these tiny builders as they survive in the most extreme conditions.moreless
