Seven Worlds, One Planet: Australia  Season 1, Ep 4

A land cast adrift at the time of the dinosaurs. Isolated for millions of years, the weird and wonderful animals marooned here are like nowhere else on Earth. In its jungles a cassowary - one of the most dangerous birds in the world – stands six feet tall. Inland, kangaroos and wombats brave snowstorms and gum tree forests are filled with never-before-seen predators.

On secret islands Tasmanian devils roam and offshore, thousands of sharks gather for a rare event.

Animals here have adapted to the extreme environments in almost unbelievable ways. [more inside]
