Life in Color with David Attenborough It is an impressive and thought-provoking series, which sees Sir David in places from the rainforests of Costa Rica to the snowy highlands of Scotland to reveal the unusual ways in which animals use color.

From ultraviolet signals on a butterfly’s wings and girl’s facial markings, to the strange polarization patterns of mantis shrimp, or how the magnificent peacock tail evolved to dazzle female turkeys, the vivid colors of the poison arrow frog warns of its deadly poison.
