I'm loving this series which will teach you something new.

In summary this is good education film about mammals, each its part is well separated.

Comments are well and not too scientific, so this film may be good for all age groups especially the youngest ones.

For me personally may be the film little more scientific. I'm see his main purpose to teach kids in elementary school. But its good for older too...
