Natural World: Australia: Taking the Heat
Australia: Taking the Heat
Animal Planet  |  October 3, 2010

High on the list of the most inhospitable places on Earth should be Australia's central desert. Ravaged by countless droughts, it is a cruel and unforgiving place where temperatures soar and trees produce poisonous leaves. Yet, in the midst of this desolate environment, many species of wildlife thrive - in fact more than can be found in the more temperate climes of Europe and North America. From kookaburras and koalas to kangaroos and emus, viewers discover how these tenacious animals have learnt to survive in such harsh conditions.
