Secrets of the Mangroves
A spectacular ecosystem in South Africa thrives with a myriad of wildlife found nowhere else on earth, including the snake with the world's longest fangs and fish that climb trees! Known for their voluminous roots, these trees seem to spring out of the water in a shoreline estuary that lies between the Indian Ocean and a vast network of inland lakes. NGC delves into the strange and fascinating behaviors of the rich assortment of creatures that live here, in Secrets of the Mangroves.
