We’re jumping head first into the fast and feisty world of Australia’s most iconic marsupial! The all new 3 part special, Secret Life of the Kangaroo, premieres on Monday at 3 April 7:30pm AEST / 8:30pm NZ.
The smallest species of seal is the Galapagos Fur Seal, averaging between about 1.2m to 1.5m in length. The largest is the Southern Elephant Seal, with males growing up to almost 6m, and weighing up to 4,000kg!
Found around the coast of Antarctica, the Crabeater Seal has by far the largest population of all the seal species. While population estimates are uncertain, there are at least 7 million and possibly as many as 75 million individuals! And this one seems particularly smug about it...
Did you know that mother and baby seals recognise each other through a familiar call? Scientists have found that from a distance, pups listen out and identify their mother's vocal pitch. They then use other components of her vocal signature to find her at closer range.
Starting in April, tune in each and every Monday night to enjoy some of Australia’s most iconic creatures! We’re talking Kangaroos, Koalas, Tasmanian Devils, Wombats, Wild Australian Birds, and many more!
Animal Planet Down Under starts Monday 3 April at 7:30pm AEST / 8:30pm NZ.
