The species Kunawalu Tree Frog and Metronome Frog live and reproduce in the branches of trees and feed their tadpoles by laying a second generation of eggs. Join Philippe as he has fitted many trees with ropes to climb and brings out the most interesting part of their explosive ovulation during which thousands of frogs copulate simultaneously.

Fighting styles

Some of the oldest fighting styles in martial arts are based on the animal kingdom's most effective fighters. The movements of the snake, the crane, the praying mantis, the monkey, and the tiger have inspired kung fu masters for hundreds of years - but how do humans really stack up to their animal counterparts? Fight Science will bring a menagerie of nature's best athletes into the lab, to determine if a martial arts master can really fight like an animal. Catch the show on National Geographic, tonight at 8 pm.
