AFRICA - “Congo” (airs Tues. Jan. 22 at 10 PM ET/PT)
The Congo rainforest, home to more species of plants and animals than any other place on this continent, covers the very heart of Africa and is the most dynamic habitat on the planet. In the crowded center of the forest, creatures must carve out their own space in this competitive world, using some surprising methods. A teenage chimp with a sweet tooth uses as many as four different tools to hunt for honey, complicated skills – even for a chimp – taught to her by her adopted mother and never before filmed. Tiny leaf-folding frogs fight for prime real estate by kick-boxing their way to the top and great herds of elephants gather under the cover of darkness at a mystery meeting place that results in combat so fierce the ground shakes.
