How many of Earth’s creatures are at home in THREE habitats? This along with many other fascinating facts makes the duck a very rare species. Find out all about these wonderful animals that we're lucky to have in our Washington, DC backyard on Nature: An Original DUCKumentary.
Confuting a long-standing reputation of being clumsy or awkward at times, the duck is born with innate skills and abilities to survive any conditions and surroundings his feathers and webbed feet encounter; he is just as adept in air as he is in the water. With more than 120 species of ducks, each boasts a special quality distinguishing him from the rest. However, all ducks are ambidextrous athletes, surreptitiously beating out the “seemingly” stronger opponents in the animal kingdom. Nature: An Original DUCKumentary explores the fascinating creature from how they survive to the vast variety of breeds.
So get your ducks in a row, duck out of any other obligations (last duck joke), and watch Nature: An Original DUCKumentary Wednesday November 14 at 8:00pm on WETA TV or WETA HD.
