Summary

The naturalist explores the extremes of birth in the animal kingdom, explaining why the giant panda gives birth to the smallest babies of any existing mammal. He also looks at the kiwi, asking why the bird produces a single egg that is a quarter of its body mass - one of the largest in the world - and almost too big to lay.
