The BAFTA award-winning series that gets under the skin of the largest animals on the planet returns for a third series to reveal the anatomy of some of nature’s most enigmatic creatures.

Most wildlife documentaries show how animals behave, but by exploring their anatomy, veterinary scientist Mark Evans, comparative anatomist Joy Reidenberg and a team of experts show how these creatures really work.
