Join Dr Simon Pollard for this fun and intriguing two part look at some of nature’s most curious creatures. Animals have evolved a dazzling array of ways to attract mates. And often it is not so different from how people behave in the mating game.
For example, some insects give a possible mate the equivalent of a box of chocolates, while some male seals show off their prime real estate, hoping females will move in.
Dr Simon Pollard has a PHD in Zoology and is Adjunct Professor of Science Communication at the University of Canterbury.
