Produced through the BBC - Life In Cold Blood has got to be one of the most informative, well-photographed, and professionally presented wild-life documentaries that you are ever likely to see.

I had never realized how totally fascinating reptiles and amphibians were until I watched this first-rate program that was intelligently hosted and narrated by David Attenborough.

Travelling to various exotic locations around the world - Life In Cold Blood tells the curious viewer all about the hunting, the fighting, the feeding, the communicating and the mating that takes place amongst some of the most bizarre-looking creatures who inhabit this planet.

Believe me - Life In Cold Blood (which was expertly filmed from various locations around the world) is a first-rate nature-documentary that gives the inquisitive viewer a close-up look at some of the strangest and most unique creatures of all, reptiles and amphibians.

From hunting, to communicating, to feeding, to mating, and beyond - Life In Cold Blood certainly proved to me that these diverse, cold-blooded animals are not the simple & primitive creatures that they are so often mistaken to be.

Superbly photographed in vivid, living colour - Life In Cold Blood is a 2-disc set of five informative programs which, altogether, have a total running time of 4 hours.

Featuring some really superb visuals, along with plenty of informative narration - Life In Cold Blood takes the viewer on an amazing journey around the world in order to give one a much better understanding of the often-hostile domain that exists for reptiles and amphibians.

From some of the biggest and most ferocious monsters in the world (lizards and crocodiles), to some of the tiniest, most timid creatures imaginable (frogs and salamanders) - Life In Cold Blood is an entertaining, 4-hour, nature-excursion that is sure to educate one and all when it comes to gaining a full understanding of these often-misunderstood creatures.

If you are definitely interested in learning some really amazing facts about some of the most bizarre creatures on the face of this planet, then, this first-rate nature-documentary should hold your rapt attention from start to finish.

From hunting, to feeding, to communicating, to surviving and mating - The reptiles (lizards, crocodiles) and the amphibians (frogs, salamanders) featured here in this documentary are truly a diverse lot who must quickly adapt to their untamed environment where they sometimes find themselves being the predator, as well as the prey, both, at the same time.

Narrated and hosted by David Attenborough, Life In Cold Blood offers the curious viewer an excellent, close-up look at a world that they would, otherwise, not have a chance to see.

Welcome to the astonishing world of the "Cold Blooded".

If you seriously think that reptiles and amphibians are just simple, primitive creatures, well, then, you had better think again.

This remarkable nature-documentary from the BBC will certainly bring to light some truly amazing facts about these often-misunderstood critters.

From snakes, to frogs, to salamanders, to lizards, and beyond - Join host Richard Attenborough as he travels to various locations in the world in order to enlighten, educate and demonstrate to the viewer what astounding and diverse lifeforms inhabit this fantastic planet of ours.

Life In Cold Blood is a 2-disc set of 5 programs with a total running time of over 4 hours. And, believe me, this documentary is certainly well-worth a 4-star rating.

(*Be sure to watch the jaw-dropping video!... And, I do mean "jaw-dropping"!!!*)

As always, the BBC & Sir David Attenborough have made an absolutely amazing documentary series. I can't praise them enough!

Amazing, Beautiful, and Colorful. I love learning about reptiles and this book doesn't disappoint at all. You get to see how reptiles found their food, and how they adopt to different environments. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves reptiles.

A really neat look at the reptile / snack families. It was impressive to see the variety, and how they have adapted to different environments. The coolest ones were the legless skinks, and others that were similar - half between reptiles, half snake transformation.
