Greece – Highlands and Islands

Greece is a land of unique contrasts, with wild animals that have disappeared from the rest of Europe! Archaic relationships, as befits one of Civilization’s sources, and seemingly special powers like Greek Gods!

Highlands takes us to isolated places like the Vikos Gorge, Europe’s Grand Canyon and wild mountain streams. Scorpions perform their mating dance, gripping each other’s pincers for hours. At the foot of Meteora monasteries lives the Scheltopusik, a bizarre legless lizard.

Islands is dedicated to Greece’s milder side: on Rhodes, crabs hunt butterflies as they hang from the branches of the pine. A caterpillar defends itself by turning into an Alien. And offshore, a cuttlefish flashes its message of fear, stress or courtship.
