THE POWER OF WINGS
To live and survive in the wild
An episode from the series ANIMAL STRATEGIES
More than 9,000 types of birds have been identified on earth. They are often very different in size, shape and colour, but all have developed the same evolutionary strategy: 160 million years ago the front limbs of these descendants of reptiles morphed into wings.
Wings gave birds the power to fly and enabled them to colonize every environment.
