      Comments about Wild Detectives DVD Set:

      A multigenerational dvd. Grand daughters ages 5 and 9 and grandson age 7. A gift for the 9 yr. old that has been watched repeatedly by all 3 as well as their mom and dad. The 2 eldest even brought it to school for "show and tell" and now have made a game of who has the closest or correct answers. The name Detective is so appropriate. Hoping NG will make a series of these!!!!

Using new science and technology, the series reveals how animals make death-defying journeys to survive.
