The Wonder of Dogs
No other land mammal displays such dazzling diversity as the dog. It?s hard to believe that a Great Dane and a Chihuahua belong to the same species, yet they do. In this series, we celebrate and study the dog in all its spectacularly different and unlikely forms. From ancient predator to household pet, the evolution of dogs is one of the most interesting stories in the animal kingdom. Presenters Kate Humble and Steve Leonard chart the remarkable journey of the domestic dog from one common ancestor to over 200 other breeds we see today, and discover that hidden in their DNA are reflections of our own human history.
