Explore the hidden world that animals across the globe can experience.
Our human senses are pretty incredible – but we only see, hear and smell a tiny fraction of what's out there. Explore how animals sense their world in ways far beyond our human capabilities.
Presented by physicist Helen Czerski and biologist Patrick Aryee, each episode of Animal Super Senses focuses on a central theme: sight, sound and scent.
Taking science out of the lab, Helen and Patrick travel five continents, getting up close to some amazing creatures and conducting an array of demonstrations and experiments out in the wild that reveal the amazing super senses of the animal world.
See how a cheetah views the world very differently from us, why the blind golden mole doesn't need eyes to find and capture its prey, and be amazed at the astounding power of a wolverine's nose.
Travel beyond the limits of human perception and prepare to be astounded by the surprising, weird and complex ways that our planet's animals sense the world around them.
