Flightless parrots, burrowing bats, giant skinks and kangaroos in trees. On the isolated islands of the South Pacific, the wildlife has evolved in extraordinary ways. But island living can carry a high price, for, when new species arrive, all hell breaks loose. And there lies a puzzle; why do animals perfectly adapted to island life simply give up the ghost?
