Antarctica is the wildest, coldest, most isolated continent on Earth. Encrusted in 90% of the world's ice, its 5.4 million square miles are doubled each winter by the freezing of the seas. The average temperature at the South Pole is -56 degrees, dropping to -90 degrees and below in mid-winter. Yet this inhospitable landscape is home to a surprisingly rich variety of wildlife, much of it unique to the region. David Attenborough and his camera team spent three years braving mountainous seas, blizzards with 100 mph winds, plummeting temperatures, and glaciers the size of cathedrals to capture the majesty of Antarctica both on land and underwater. In this starkly beautiful landscape, they discover penguins by the millions, whales by the thousands, half the world's seal population and seabirds galore

"Tidal seas--The sun and moon move billions of tons of water with every turn of the tide. The strongest tides empty entire bays, smash trees on riverbanks, and strand sea creatures on suddenly dry land. Weaker tides controlthe movements of huge numbers of fish, coaxing schools of giant stingrays through astounding underwater arches. And as the water recedes, the tide can create unbelievable landscapes--like a sparkling world of salt crystals inhabited only by tiny shrimp and bright pink flamingos."--Container

With over 240 breathtaking photographs and footage from the landmark BBC series, The Hunt captures the dramatic encounters of predator and prey in an entirely new light. Featuring the extraordinary strategies of a huge range of predators, from cheetahs and African wild dogs to killer whales and polar bears, these images and stories will revolutionise what you thought you knew about life in the wild. Featured are the strategies of a huge range of predators, each fine-tuned to its environment, whether the frozen Arctic, the baking desert, the ever-changing extremes of a tidal zone or the pressurised depths of the ocean. Some are built to outrun their prey, with sheer speed or with stamina. Some stalk with a sophistication of planning and game-play that reveals great intelligence. Others opt for subterfuge, investing in complex traps or irresistible lures. The final chapter of the book goes behind the scenes to recount the adventures of the production teams as they themselves stalk their quarry u and are sometimes stalked u revealing how the key sequences were filmed. Illustrations include stills from the latest 4K, high-speed and time-lapse video, depicting never-before-photographed behaviour. From the producers of Frozen Planet and Planet Earth, The Hunt is a dramatic look at the strategy and ingenuity of the animal kingdom in its most crucial moments
