- MegaNature takes a riveting trip through the biggest and the best in nature, unraveling the stunning and often breathtaking stories behind some of the greatest animal happenings on Earth. Whether it is the magical mass emergence of mayflies, the sudden appearance of the huge fish shoals, or flocks of budgerigars turning the desert green, there are always important biological reasons for animals to become part of a crowd. Discover why butterflies, in one tiny grove in Mexico, festoon winter trees like leaves; why, in spring, snakes choose to gather together like a scene from an Indiana Jones movie; why thousands of fish strand themselves on the sand; and what makes penguins swirl together in huge rotating huddles. Journey straight to the heart of the world's greatest animal gatherings for the answers as MegaNature explores the reasons behind these unique occurrences and why some animals prefer not to go it alone.
