Great things come in small packages. This film tells the epic survival stories of the world’s smallest animals, from a tiny sengi, the “cheetah” of the shrew world, to a small shark that walks on land. For these animals, size does not matter.
The epaulette shark’s small size allows it to thrive in shallow coral reefs. But when the tide rolls out it can be left high and dry. To avoid baking in the hot sun, the epaulette has evolved an extraordinary strategy–it walks to water.

The new mom has just over a year to teach them how to survive in the wilderness without her. Follow this cheetah family through the eyes of conservationist and cameraman Kim Wolhuter.
