Each week, we’ll bring you a new episode featuring some of Australia’s lesser-known, but no-less-fascinating wildlife – like superpowered sea slugs, a butterfly that has groupies, and a marsupial mouse with a bizarre sex life.

Season 2 Episodes:

Season 2 | Episode 1

The ants keeping an endangered butterfly alive

Season 2 | Episode 4

The tenacious bird abandoning its young in a giant thermal mound

In some of the most harsh habitat in Australia, you’ll find what looks like giant piles of dirt.

Season 2 | Episode 5

The scientist who dedicated her life to the mysterious springtail

In the 1950s Dr Penelope Greenslade became one of the few women to study at Cambridge University. She then travelled to Solomon Islands where her love affair with the springtail began, a tiny acrobatic animal that you’ll find almost everywhere in Australia but have probably never recognised…
