Monitor Lizard Decomposition Time Lapse - Earth Unplugged

Earth Unplugged
12 Oct 2013

What happens when an animal dies? This week Sam and Si speed things up using time lapse for a change - as they watch what happens to a deceased Savannah monitor lizard over the course of a month. The circle of life springs into action as we highlight some of the stages of decomposition, and showcase the little beasties that get involved along the way. *The lizard used in this film was donated to us by a licensed and reputable source, and wasn't harmed in any way to make this episode.
