This is an amazing documentary about truly astounding animals. I could watch this once a month and never grow tired of it.

Wow! Watched this with my 12yo and 6yo. All three of us had the same comment. Wow!

The information was presented well with just enough detail to hold all our attentions. Great discussions happened afterward. I am sure we will check this one out again and again.
