'Wilbur' Gives Us Facts About Pigs & Spiders And The Training Of Animals
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
15 November 2007
"Flacka" is one of the real pigs who played "Wilbur" in the film
"Charlotte's Web." The young boy who voiced "Wilbur," Dominic Scott Kay
(who gets no film credit on the back of the DVD even though he has the
most lines, and gets 11th listing on the cast page here on IMDb) gives
us some facts and figures and takes us behind the scenes with the
training of the animals. We talks as if he is explaining things to
other kids but there are many interesting facts are animals that adults
can learn a lot, too.
What's "amazing," Dominic's favorite word, is to see a sheep shaking
hands, like a dog would be trained, or a pig walking backwards on
command, and a few other things. Animal trainers are pretty special,
patient people as we see here.
Dominic also shares some very interesting facts about pigs and spiders
that most people probably don't know, such as why pigs love the mud and
that spiders eat their webs to help make new ones. The answer to the
pigs and mud is: 1 - to protect their pale skin from sunburn; 2 - to
cool off, because they don't have sweat glands, and 3 - to protect
against biting flies.
