The 10-part series follows Sir David as he travels across the UK to explore animal... oddities that other TV programmes simply do not cover. Each episode features two different animals with curiously distinctive evolutionary quirks linked together by a common theme. Sir David looks at the emperor penguin and the wood frog both of which survive in conditions so cold they seem to defy the laws of nature; the rhino and the hedgehog two animals that hide behind seemingly impenetrable armoured coats; and gorillas and vampire bats who both have unfairly gained frightening reputations within the animal kingdom.

The first two series of the documentary presented by esteemed British wildlife commentator David Attenborough exploring some of the natural world's greatest curiosities. Among the issues examined by Attenborough are the role electric eels played in human research into electricity and other quirks in animals that have proved interesting to scientists and researchers. The broadcaster also looks at pairs of animals that share certain traits such as the emperor penguin and wood frog, both of which can live in exceptionally cold conditions; the rhino and the hedgehog, which possess formidable defences to deter predators; and gorillas and vampire bats, which have a reputation for aggression that is largely unwarranted by their behaviour.
