    or working 16 hour nightshifts like i did last weekend

    I wonder if they planted the baby iguana. All seemed a little too set up to me with the cameras all being in perfect positions.

    The cameras are always in perfect positions though. Like when the sloth started to swim, they had him covered from all angles under water. It's quite incredible to be honest and I have no idea how it's done.

    I'd never heard of Racer snakes but you can see why they're called that. Had to feel for the young Iguanas though.

    I believe they spend days, possibly longer filming at a lot of these locations, and you get around 5-10mins per location on screen.

    stunning it was ....looked almost unreal

    Like a scaly Lionel Messi

    Loved it. It reminded me of someone new to Misc posting their first thread and being pursued by a series of long-term residents. Character-forming. X)

    durrrrrrrrrrrr...obvs they pay the animals. Some people!

    Yup great video, but because its always setup, bet the iguana was planted there, so takes a bit of wow from it.

    Planet Earth 2 is fantastic work by the BBC, well done Beeb

    You are just speculating though, your comment has no substance to it. I imagine thousands of hours of research goes into every location and they know roughly when the best times to film are and just happened to catch this piece of magic.

    Even so, the escape was the best bit about the entire scene!

    Yeh it was great still, and cant wait to buy on bluray, got most of the BBC doc's on disc.

    I watched it today and the hairs on the back of my neck where on end

    Recorded but not watched yet.
    Thanks for the preview.
