Decent Nature Series That Educates
5 September 2018 | by jasonreno-26367See all my reviews

I've learned a lot about wildlife in other areas of the world. I don't always agree with their rankings, but the rankings aren't the point. The point is just seeing the different wildlife in the area and getting a snippet of that specific animal or insect in under an hour (seems most episodes are in the upper 40 minute range).

Looking at other reviews on this I'd have to say that maybe animal activists shouldn't watch this type of program, or basically any nature documentary on Discovery, Animal Planet, etc., as none of them are really designed to your agenda. I applaud the program for simply telling why people should stay away from dangerous animals. But I would like to point out that there have been several examples in the series where they play advocate to animal rights causes and discuss abuse or endangered aspects of animals. I'd also point out that no one on the series advocates harming any of the animals, even those who have been attacked.
