Animal Babies season 1
Animal Babies season 1 episodes list:
The great plains of Africa are home to some of the most iconic animals on the planet. Growing up here means safari babies face immense challenges that will really test them. With the largest herds on the planet all competing for the same food, and dangerous predators round every corner, the African savannah is a hugely competitive place. This film follows animals including the newly born elephant calf who, with her mum, has become separated from the safety of the herd. She must battle against scorching heat to search for the rest of the family. Even predators are having a hard time; six adorable cheetah cubs are chased from a kill by vultures, and now they need to start to learn to hunt for themselves. Elsewhere, a young zebra foal has to cross the treacherous waters of a crocodile-infested river - despite her still-wobbly legs. They are all setting out on their own adventures, and must learn fast if they're going to make it to adulthood.
Seventy per cent of Earth is covered in water. Many animals that live in water come on land to have their babies, and being born this way presents some major challenges for water babies to overcome. For some, simply getting to water in the first place can be the biggest trial of their young lives, whilst others have to face up to their first swimming lesson or get to grips with vital adult skills. Meet the adorable baby fur seal pup who has lost his mother amongst three million other fur seals that crowd the beaches of South Georgia. Watch how the daredevil ducklings take an amazing leap of faith whilst barely a day old. Meet the three boisterous giant otter pups that need to get to grips with toilet training and learning to hunt for themselves. All the water babies must learn fast if they're going to make through the most dangerous days of their lives.
