Alien Animal Planet

Flying whales, walking trees, three-eyed killer birds - NASA and SETI imagine life on other worlds.

On Aurelia, an Earth-sized planet half shrouded in perpetual darkness, vast floodplains give way to groves of treelike stinger fans that use ambulatory roots to creep across the muddy surface. On Blue Moon, a lunar orb in an adjacent solar system light-years from Aurelia, winged skywhales gulp aerial plankton suspended in the dense atmosphere, while balloon plants float beneath the canopies of massive pagoda tree forests, buoyed by hydrogen gas-filled membranes like miniature Hindenburgs.

Comments:
I saw this program-very interesting.

If you don't have National Geographic, & it's cost effective, it's well worth having.
