Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this stunning natural history series from the producers of Planet Earth offers an inspiring glimpse into the global wildlife population's mostly unseen struggles for survival. Young and/or sensitive viewers may have a tough time with hunting scenes and shots of animals eating their prey; there's also some discussion (with imagery) of various animals' mating/breeding behavior. The series touches on the dangers of environmental concerns like global warming, offering plenty for families to talk about. Ultimately, it instills a respect for nature.

Sexual Content

Some content includes mating and breeding rituals for various species, some of which is shown. Dragonflies mate in mid-air, for instance, and an animal is shown emerging from the placenta, covered in afterbirth.

Violence

Predators of all sizes kill and eat their prey, and itâ¿¿s often a fairly gruesome/upsetting sight. In one segment, a polar bear strips the skin from a young seal and eats it; in another, a mother fox kills young birds learning to fly and feeds them to her hungry pups.
