PBS has done it again very well done documentary series. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

kids age 7 and 9 loved it. Its made by Disney. It tells the story of 3 animals from the time they are babies. Adorable and educational.

Another great Imax film, the amazing story of two women who raise orphan elephants and oranatangs. Love the scene of the elephants playing soccer. A must see for any animal lover.
