If you’re desperately missing your regular TV line-up, here is a new program for you to checkout about the environment and its stunning creatures.

The National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild present a four-hour HD miniseries called “Untamed Americas.” You can see amazing landscapes like deserts, coasts, forests and mountains, in addition to some of the most remarkable creatures that have never been caught on film.

The docuseries reveals a bat that was only recently discovered. The two-lipped bat has the largest tongue to body ratio of any mammal in the world and is the sole pollinator of a particular plant. A camouflaged lizard, filmed for the first time ever, can be seen squirting foul tasting blood at its predator. Watch the never before seen birth of a lemon shark during Hurricane Alley, then check out a new kind of penguin living in an arid desert.

Just from watching the preview, which you can see for yourself below, the footage is breathtaking.

“I want to make people aware of it, to care about it and experience it for themselves,” Producer Karen Bass said. “Let’s not kid ourselves that we understand our planet, because we don’t. It’s inspiration. It’s revelation.”

Furthermore, the series is narrated by none other than actor Josh Brolin.

The two day event airs Sunday, June 10 and Monday, June 11 at 9 p.m. EST.
