Weasel, Super Small Animals

Biologist Patrick Aryee has moved away from the dog pack and has delved into the miniature animal world, uncovering the survival secrets of those not much larger than your fingertip.

From little lemurs and tiny hummingbirds to the world smallest snakes, Patrick also meets a secretive hippo that lives in the dense jungle and chats to a scientist that studies how really tiny spiders have a surprising trick that enables them to travel 40 miles per day.

Tonight Aryee also puts some astonishing invertebrates to the test to see how they work together to become much bigger and take on some of the most dangerous creatures on the planet.
