Worth seeing for those wanting cute animals and those interested in animal behaviorism., 14 August 2013
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

There are many unusual cross-species 'friendships' that are examined here--such as a dog and fawn, a goose and tortoise, a lion and a coyote and several others. You hear from various experts about these situations where animals behave uncharacteristically--forming bonds with animals of other species.

This episode of "Nature" ("Animal Odd Couples") is one I honestly decided to watch because I like seeing cute animals. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see that although the film abounded with cute, it also looked at these odd relationships from a scientific/inquiring point of view as well. So, you not only get to hear and see a lot of cute but also learn something at the same time--what more could you want?! Well worth your time.

By the way, one of the animal behavior experts you hear from quite a bit in the show is Temple Grandin--a woman whose life story was wonderfully portrayed by Claire Danes in a film named for the animal expert. Well worth seeing as well.
