I'm not making this up. I think they probably are, though.

Remember I mentioned the unintentional hilarity of The Future Is Wild a couple of weeks ago? This morning's featured Flish - fish that fly, obviously - being caught and eaten by a shapeshifting bright orange slime mould, which gets around the thick forests of 200,000,000 years' time by being eaten by five-metre-high Land Squid, taking control of their brains, and then being sneezed out through the Land Squid's noise-making pouch, where it may hang in the trees along with, yes, Squibbons - much smaller squid that swing from tree to tree and may, so the programme tells us, be intelligent enough to form the basis of an entirely new civilisation.

"I don't know" is a much quicker answer to the question "What will life be like 200,000,000 years in the future?" and it also requires far less CGI. But, on the other hand, it doesn't include Squibbons.
