Life on the Edge (Episode 2)
The Tatra Mountains loom far above the clouds – the smallest high mountain range on earth. Some species have thrived here since the ice age: chamois are well equipped for the harsh climate, in spite of snowstorms that can even break out in the middle of summer. The marmots, meanwhile, spend more than half the year asleep. Other animals, like red deer and bears, repopulated the region after the end of the ice age. Since then, they’ve tried to master the various challenges of this mountainous world.
