ATTENBOROUGH'S NATURAL CURIOSITIES 3: CURIOUS CURES

Human are not alone in using medicines against injuries and infection. Some animals protect themselves with natural remedies in the most extraordinary ways.

Hippos produce a blood-red "sweat" that acts as a sunblock and helps fight infections, while capuchin monkeys rub themselves with insect-repellent leaves to protect themselves from insect bites.

ATTENBOROUGH'S NATURAL CURIOSITIES 3: CURIOUS MINDS

Orangutans are clever tool users but strangely such skills remained undiscovered for centuries. They were considered as just clever mimics until discovery in remote Sumatran swamps revealed their true potential.

Crows are clever birds that can solve problems and they too make surprisingly sophisticated tools. How have the curious minds of these two animals helped them become so inventive?

ATTENBOROUGH'S NATURAL CURIOSITIES 3: REMARKABLE REGENERATION

Some animals can do the seemingly impossible. Salamanders can regenerate entire legs and tails to replace ones they've lost, while deer shed their massive antlers and re-grow them from a few remaining cells each year.

How do these animals regenerate entire body parts and why is it not possible for all animals to do the same?

SHOW ME SCIENCE - BIOLOGY: UNDERSTANDING ANIMAL BEHAVIOR

Are animals intelligent? Bees communicate with each other and monkeys use rocks and sticks to help them get food. Is this instinctual or is it evidence of thought? Some scientists believe that one measure of intelligence is self-awareness and that an animal's reaction to its own image in a mirror can tell us whether or not it is self-aware. This program looks at fish, birds, monkeys and primates and their reactions to themselves in a mirror. Researchers look for signs of self-recognition as they observe, record and interpret the reactions of these animals. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.
