The Nature Of Things: Mini Monsters of Amazonia

October 18

THE NATURE OF THINGS with David Suzuki takes Canadian audiences to the Amazon headwaters in Mini Monsters of Amazonia, where viewers are introduced to Membracids.  These tiny masters of disguise, strategy and survival avoid predators by mimicking leaves, branches or even deadly fungus. No bigger than 6 mm, Membracids can be seen living in groups along with their protectors, the ants. In Mini Monsters of Amazonia, a team of insect scientists reveals the mating sounds of these minute creatures and the many unique evolutionary traits of the Membracids. Mini Monsters of Amazonia airs Sunday, Oct. 18, at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT), on CBC Television.
