It's the best opportunity

they will get to eat all year.

[dramatic music playing]

On flat ground a baby iguana

can outrun a racer snake.

But, others are waiting in ambush.

Another hatchling has his first glimpse

of a dangerous world.

[music fades]

-[rocks shifting]

-[dramatic music playing]

[dramatic music intensifies]

The snake's eyes aren't very good,

but they can detect movement.

So, if the hatchling keeps its nerve,

it may just be okay.

An amazing escape.

The biggest achievement

of any young animal's life.

Powered by our local star.

[animals calling]


As the Sun climbs higher,

its rays reach further.

Bringing magic wherever they touch.

[light twinkling]

Plants turn the light into life.

They take thin air and the Sun's energy

and with photosynthesis make new growth.

Conjuring up tangled forest worlds,

leaf by leaf.

[plants crackling and rustling]

It's the alchemy upon which

everything else on Earth depends.

A matter of life,

and death.

[insect squeaking]

[loud crush]

One plant can weave

its particular spell in a single clay.

This is bamboo.

It can grow almost a millimetre a minute.

The fastest growing plant in the world.

It's still only mid-morning.

Most of this has grown since dawn.

[loud crunching]

And since dawn,

this giant panda has been eating it.

The trouble with bamboo,

is that it's not very nutritious.

The trouble with pandas,

is that they're very fussy.

Bamboo is almost

the only thing they'll eat.

To get enough energy to feed herself,

this panda will need

to eat up to 14 hours today.

Longer probably, because she's nursing.

But for her cub, it's different.

She lives mostly on her mother's milk,

so chewing is only really her hobby.

Not yet a full-time job.

This morning, she has something
