Africa: Congo

The Congo rainforest's residents have fine remarkable ways to adapt to their crowded living space. A sweet-toothed female chimpanzee is filmed for the first time using a complex array of tools to access honey from a bees’ nest in the jungle. The mysterious Picathartes bird, feeds its nest of dinosaur-like chicks with some unsuspecting frogs. A huge female python reveals her maternal side as she sunbathes to incubate her eggs before tending to her new babies. The forest elephants gather as darkness falls to socialise and to go into battle against rivals.
