Camel (#106H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TV14 (Secondary audio: DVI)

Mark Evans and Joy Reidenberg brave the baking desert to dissect a camel. They uncover the secret of the camel's hump and investigate how its elastic legs, stretchy lips and pedestal (a strange bump on its chest) are among the many surprising adaptations that enable the camel to thrive in such a dry and hostile environment.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Great White Shark (#103H) Duration: 54:47 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: DVI)

The experts travel to South Africa to dissect a 15-foot-long great white shark. Comparative anatomist Joy Reidenberg uncovers the amazing array of senses the shark possesses, including the ability to detect the electro-magnetic field given off by other creatures. Veterinary scientist Mark Evans investigates the origins of the shark's infamous killing bite, and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins explains how sharks' teeth and jaws evolved from their outer skin and gill arches. Finally, the experts ask whether the shark deserves its reputation as a man killer.
