Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this stunning high-def series narrated by Oprah Winfrey is an excellent educational choice for families. The breathtaking tour of the world's diverse animal populations is a fascinating journey for all ages, and it inspires a deep respect for the beauty and fragility of environmental balance (and might provoke conversations about humans' role in maintaining this balance). That said, the series does include a number of graphic scenes of animals hunting and eating prey and might raise questions from youngsters about, well, the birds and the bees, since it often refers to (and in some cases shows in detail) mating practices of a number of different species. If your kids aren't quite ready for "the talk," you might need to be selective about the segments you share with them.

Sexual Content

Content often includes references to animals' mating habits, using terms like "foreplay," "consummate," and "in heat." Some reproductive encounters are shown in detail, including those of snakes, bullfrogs, and lizards, as are some births.


Predators kill and eat their prey, and territorial fights among males often turn violent and bloody.
