In this episode Chris Packham unravels some of nature's oddest creatures: a deep-sea blob spotted in the Gulf of Mexico that mystified oil rig workers and sent the Internet in to frenzy, the washed-up remains of a gargantuan creature that baffled scientists for decades, and a stow-away spider with a set of unfathomable feet. Chris also investigates an octopus who's behavior was so extraordinary that nobody believed it was real, the curious case of bright blue frogs appearing in pools in Germany and an Australian lake the color of bubble-gum that had an evolutionary secret hidden within its lurid depths.
