The Trials Of Life
Sir David Attenborough continues his study of animal behaviour in the third instalment of his award-winning Life series. Beginning with the ways in which animals arrive in the world and ending with the extraordinary techniques they employ to reproduce, the Trials of Life is one of the most comprehensive wildlife documentaries ever made. Taking some three and a half years to make, Attenborough travelled almost a quarter of a million miles to complete this fascinating and insightful documentary.

    I'm starting to think brain size is irrelevant. This was a preplanned caper…and adjustment on the fly. so to speak.

    Could it be the bigger spider invaded the smaller spider's web first? Maybe it was the smaller spider's nest at first place. Nice play BBC earth.

    This was my favorite spider that I have ever caught as a kid. It was practically twice the size of my hand back then. I was deathly afraid of it at the same time I was fascinated by it; I was shivering while holding the bottle trying to look at it. It was quite docile but very intimidating. The one I caught was black all over and had the same colors as the one on the video except the abdomen was black with stripes running its back.

    Spiders steal and are ruthless, just like other creatures in life, just like humans!

    Na natureza animal …O tamanho por vezes não é relevante …a destreza e a sagacidade neste caso são a palavra certa para este roubo!! O roubo fez-se e não houve tempo de apanhar o/a ladra(ao) e a sua presa… é pequenina mas uma estratega nata em linhas de seda cheias entrelaçadas. Para esta aranha foi o roubo do século? !? É aspirante a um David?!!
