Planet Earth.

Im watching the second disc to Planet Earth right now and im so intrigued by it! I just can't seem to stop watching it! The first disc, "From Pole to Pole," serves as a primer for things to come, placing the entire series in proper context and giving a general overview of what to expect from each individual episode. It shows the polar regions; from penguins to polar bears, great plains; to elephants, zebras, wilds dogs, many different birds, & antelope, deep seas; to seals & great white sharks, the jungle in New Guinea; which have some various birds, and it shows the seasonal forest; which show the amur leopards that are nearly becoming extinct. The second disc is about caves. It shows people actually free-falling into them, then people finding the "Chandelier Ballroom," a crystal-encrusted cavern found over a mile deep in New Mexico's treacherous Lechuguilla, it shows different animals that are found living in the cave, such as bats, roaches, salamanders, crabs, many different species of fish, glow worms, etc. The deepest cave is found in the continental United States! It's just so amazing what are found in caves and how far people are willing to go to find out (for us) to see. I can't wait to watch the next disc. :)
