Why God put different species in different climate? Then Darwin said that these animals have adapted. They change from generation to generation to fit in the climate where they live, so that they could survive. Then, Darwin drew a tree of life.

It shows the first ancestor parent animals from the root of the tree to the animals have evolved on the branch of the tree.

Continue on the movie, it's the part of the scientists did a research on the humming birds. They wrote down all information on the humming birds they'd caught on different places including took some of their DNA. All These humming birds have different beaks to adapt on the individual climate even if they have similar DNA. The environments where they live force them to adapt to survive. Humming birds which live near...
