Body Parts

Find out size really does matter when you take Body Parts to The Most Extreme.

Produced by NHNZ

You can pump as much iron as you like, but you’ll never build a body like the unique physiques of the natural world.

The Most Extreme: Body Parts counts down the top ten most extreme appendages in the animal kingdom, and examines how our own extremities measure up in comparison.

The countdown is jam-packed with odd bods with odd bits. How would you like to be able to clean your ears with your tongue? Or have eyes the size of a beach ball? Or even have a nose made up of more than 100,000 muscles?

But it isn’t just the animal world that’s full of surprises. Did you know that if your left ear is slightly longer than your right, scientists have suggested that you might be better suited to a career in the sciences? And meet a woman with finger nails longer than her feet. Every time she paints them she needs three bottles of nail polish!

Find out size really does matter when you take Body Parts to The Most Extreme.
