    A sailfish zeros in on a fish baitball. For the five million species that exist on Earth, the daily struggle to exist requires ingenuity, creativity and resourcefulness. Using stunning footage, culled from over 10,000 hours of material, Nat Geo WILD's series, "One Life," offers a new look at the animal kingdom.

    Animals use more than instinct to survive. Like humans, they make choices and learn from trial-and-error moments. These grass-cutter ants in Argentina can't actually eat the grass, so they chop it up and carry it home, where they feed it to a fungus, which then the ants eat.

    Like something out of a horror movie, two stag beetles use their massive jaws to fight each other. Tune in to watch "One Life" on Dec. 26 at 8 p.m. ET on the National Geographic Channel.
