The epic new BBC One series Africa introduces a cast of unfamilar wildlife species and surprising behaviour.
In episode five, David Attenborough explores the lives of the toughest species and shows how they manage to exist in the scorching wilderness of the Sahara desert, from an ant in a 'spacesuit' to a Critically Endangered addax.
Plus see barbary macaques surviving in the freezing Atlas mountains, crocodiles hunting in the dark, migrating swallows and the awe-inspiring story of the resurrection plant.
