Animal Superpowers: Extreme Hunters
Patrick Stewart unravels the mysteries behind the hammerhead shark, the python and the sperm whale. In the Florida Keys see firsthand how the hammerhead shark can sense tiny electric fields given off by living creatures, and uses this ability to hunt its prey. In the Florida wetlands, an experiment illustrates how the python uses its unique heat-seeking ability to hunt at night. Near the islands of the Azores, we'll find out how the elusive sperm whale uses sound — not sight — to find food.
