Witches live in ponds. Everybody knows that. There they trade with the devil. The animals that live in the pond are part of many legends. But the life of these grass snakes, bats or toads has nothing to do with the image they were given by popular belief. This teeming pond-life is fascinating, let's discover it!
One could argue that these beliefs are outdated because they are linked to Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Yet, quite the opposite is true! Centuries of legends and superstitions have written these fears into our genes. Animals become the victims of our fears, as they are being dug up, hunted or called pests.
Why not challenge those beliefs? Why not change the way we see these species we so unfairly gave a bad name to? Let's leave legend behind to take a look at reality.
Mixing animation (drawings by John Howe, Artistic Director of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit) and wildlife images, this series will give these badmouthed species a new image, discovering their part in nature and seducing the viewers with extraordinary beauty.
