Summary
From the Serengeti Desert to the Kalahari Plain, experience the amazing ways that animals like cheetahs, crocodiles, rhinos and elephants survive. It's the wild spirit of African animals captured by the world's finest filmmakers - plus exciting music videos too. Narrated by Dudley Moore. Intended for children ages 4-10. Bushbabies (Galago) are shown capturing a moth for food, eating tree gum, leaping between trees, carrying baby in mouth, and climbing. Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) are shown vocalizing, grooming, sleeping in nest, termite fishing (tool use), and cracking nuts with stone hammers. Their social behavior is examined, showing aggressive and positive social behavior. The black and white colobus (C. abyssinicus) is seen feeding, leaping through trees, and calling alarm vocalizations. Aunting is shown as one female takes an infant from another. Seen briefly are the gorilla and baboon (Papio). Other animals shown are the lion, zebra, meerkat, rhino and elephant
