Living creatures occupy every comer and crevice of the planet. And yet in the hot deserts of Arizona, the cold waters of Greenland and deep down in the rocks of New Mexico and France, survival needs special kit and skill.
On these frontiers there are fish without eyes, big beef dressed in duffle coats and deadly snakes that keep their heads cool.
