Is It Any Good?

The educational series is a fun, quirky way for viewers to learn about animal species that most people know little about. It shows how animals have changed over the centuries to adapt to harsh environments and planetary changes and debunks some of the cultural myths that surround some of the more exotic specimens.

You don’t have to be an animal lover to enjoy the wide range of interesting creatures showcased here. But sensitive viewers who aren't used to frank nature shows may find the frequent images of animal specimens a little disturbing. Ultimately, though, Baker’s passion for nature comes through clearly, here, making Weird Creatures a worthwhile pick for tweens and up.
