Meet the most successful of all the planet's life forms. Sir David Attenborough introduces viewers to the most diverse group of animals ever to live on earth: from the tiny two-inch pygmy shrew to the enormous blue whale; from the sloth to the swift cheetah; from the unattractive naked mole-rat to the human baby. The Life of Mammals is the story of 4,000 species that have outlived the dinosaurs and conquered the farthest places on earth.With bodies kept warm by thick coats of fur and their developing young protected and nourished within their bodies, they have managed to colonise every part of the globe, dry or wet, hot or cold. Adapting their bodies for finding food has had a profound effect on the way they move, socialise, mate and breed.
