What Females Want And Males Will Do - Part 2: What

Season 25, Episode 10 of 13

A two-part miniseries about sexual selection - unique behaviors, elaborate displays and special adaptations that determine who picks whom, who mates with whom, and who produces the offspring that carry genes into the next generation. Scientists around the world are making amazing new discoveries about the complex nature of courtship throughout the animal kingdom, employing cutting-edge technology, robotics, chemical analysis, special cameras, even computer animation. It's a sexual education that takes us all way beyond the birds and the bees. Part Two: What Males Will Do - Apparently, there is nothing a male will not do for the right to mate with a female - dance, sing, make music, fight, overdress, change body colors, develop astonishing anatomy, illuminate, even agree to be eaten alive. You're nobody until somebody loves you.
