Against a dramatic backdrop of super-heated geysers, arid grasslands and snow-capped volcanos, the fortunes of a newborn vicuna foal, and that of a flamingo colony, unfold. This is the breath-taking story of how animals on the high, central Andean plains have adapted to a world fired by volcanic heat and pinched by thirst and thin air. But even here life has found surprising ways to survive. A marsupial called ‘the elegant fat-tailed mouse opossum’ stores fat in its tail and draws on it as needed. It can even shrink its internal organs to save energy when food is scarce.
