Over the next six weeks we will be documenting our favourite parts and fun facts from each episode, onesie style! 

Before we get into what we saw on the first episode, here are some interesting details about the show...

Planet Earth II was shot in 40 different countries, with crews making 117 filming trips. Shooting days totted up to 2,089, or just over 5.7 years non-stop!

Who composed the show you ask? Hans Zimmer best known for writing the music to The Lion King, Gladiator, The Dark Knight (to name a few).

Sloth

Who knew that's sloths could swim? Well we sure didn't anyways, we have always been lazy sloths here <3 This little dude is swimming to his girlfriend in this shot. Did you know that the pygmy sloth is only found on the island of Escudo de veraguas in Panama?

Aww, right? The pygmy sloth is only found on the tiny island of Escudo de Veraguas in Panama.&nbsp;This one's not just going for a dip, but on the search for a mate.

Monkey - Lemur

Lemurs are only found on the island of Madagascar and there are 100 different types! Start chilling out in your monkey onesie while watching planet earth!


The show takes us to&nbsp;Madagascar to hang out with lemurs – there are about 100 different types, and&nbsp;they're not found anywhere else on Earth.

Snake

We really were clinging to our sofa and shouting at the TV at these chaser snakes in our snake onesie! Check out this video!

Remember those cute newly hatched marine&nbsp;iguanas? They have to make a break for the sea... but these racer snakes are waiting for a tasty meal. Get ready to cling to your sofa.

Dragon

Female dragons only come into season once a year! We have numerous fire breathing lounge wear for you guys, onesies for the kids,for him or for her, and  slippers!

Get ready to realise how fierce Komodo dragons are – females only come into season once a year, and only the biggest, bossest males will get to mate with her. Cue fighting.

Bird

The Southern Buller's albatrosses return to the same nests every year in new Zealand. The male arrives first and have to wait for their mates to show up. They can date for years and even have special courtship dances and hand shakes! Your little one will be looking just like the albatross in this childrens bird onesie!

This picture is so beautiful we almost can't believe&nbsp;it's not CGI. Anyway,&nbsp;Southern Buller's albatrosses return to the same nests near New Zealand every year. The males arrive first and have to wait for their mates to show up. They can date for years and even have special courtship dances.

Reptile - Iguana

The marine iguanas are the only lizards to forage algae from the seas. males can dive 30 metres and hold their breath for up to half an hour!

The marine iguanas are the only lizards to forage algae from the sea (males can dive to 30 metres and hold their breath for half an hour) – but they obviously also enjoy a bit of a sunbathe.&nbsp;

Penguin

The planet earth crew spent a year planning their trip to Zavodovzki Island - an active volcano in the Antarctica - to film the largest penguin colony on Earth! It is a home to 1.5 million penguins! Get all snuggly in your penguin onesie for next weeks show! 

Just a gorgeous photograph of chinstrap penguins courting at sunset. What more do you need?

 We hope you enjoyed catching up on Planet Earth, onesie style!

Until next week <3

Much love from everyone at Primark Onesies xxx
