Narrated by David Schwimmer, Mysterious Planet is a five-part documentary series that explores five extraordinary hotspots and five unique mysteries, featuring a new cast of charismatic creatures in each location. From the lush forests of Indonesia to the arid Andean deserts, from the Caribbean to the highlands of Ethiopia, each episode takes us on an adventure through time and space to reveal how these animals came to be, and why they exist only in these exceptional places on our planet. They are nature's greatest wild locations and their secrets reveal a planet more beautiful and more bizarre than we could ever imagine.
David Schwimmer meets some of the strangest creatures on Earth. Komodo Dragons are excellent swimmers who have migrated far from the Komodo Islands in the past. Without the need for any males to reproduce, and one single female could potentially populate an entire island on her own.
