Once again, David Attenborough's Seven Worlds, One Planet left viewers astounded

This week's episode took a closer look at South America, and it did not disappoint.

Sunday nights for many people mean just one thing - watching David Attenborough's docuseries Seven Worlds, One Planet.

Each episode of the show focuses on a different continent, and this week's was South America.

It was a typically brilliant episode, that gave the audience a great look at the most species rich continent on Earth.

And in case you missed it, these GIFs should satisfy your cute animal cravings at least until next week:

Class.

And there was this tense encounter...

But sadly, as is often the case with Attenborough's recent projects, there was an overwhelming sense of dejection attached to his commentary.

The documentary stated that throughout South America as a whole, an area of forest the size of a football pitch is being lost every five seconds.

The World Wildlife Fund took to Twitter to comment on the findings from the episode, saying: "There’s no way we can fight the nature and #ClimateCrisis without stopping the destruction of our forests. It's that simple."

Next week's episode is looking at Australia, and we're excited already.
