This adult and “mini-me” banded mongoose pair has a very special relationship. The adult essentially serves as a nanny and role model for the pup. For the first two to three months of a pup’s life, it “shadows” an unrelated adult from its social group. The adult, called an “escort,” carries and feeds the pup until the pup can find its own food.

Researchers at Exeter University recently found that not only do the mentors teach the pups to forage, but the specific behaviors last a lifetime. Even at middle age, a mongoose still copies the foraging style and food preferences learned from its pup-hood escort. The study highlights the importance of culturally learned behaviors in shaping diversity in animal populations.

The Rare and Exotic Animals – National Geographic Documentary

The Rare and Exotic Animals – National Geographic Documentary. The white lion is a rare color mutation of the Timbavati area. White lions are the same as the tawny African Lion (Panthera leo krugeri) found in some wildlife reserves in South Africa and in zoos around the world. White lions are not a separate subspecies and are thought to be indigenous to the Timbavati region of South Africa for centuries, although the earliest recorded sighting in this region was in 1938. Regarded as divine by locals, white lions first came to public attention in the 1970s in Chris McBride’s book The White Lions of Timbavati. Up until 2009, when the first pride of white lions was reintroduced to the wild, it was widely believed that the white lion could not survive in the wild. It is for this reason that a large part of the population of white lions now reside in zoos.

Wild Alaska – National Geographic Documentary HD
DESCRIPTION
It might seem hard to believe in the depths of December but, compared to Alaska, winter in Britain is a breeze.

For months at a time this vast land is plunged into darkness. Then, come summer, this state of extremes is bathed in 24-hour sunshine. Yet life isn’t affected in these northern lands.

Featuring footage of bears catching leaping salmon, and a herd of caribou migrating from Canada to where the grass is greener, Wild Alaska gives you a fascinating insight into the wildlife that calls this place home.

From baby polar bears fighting for food to the plight of thousands of walruses stranded on a beach, the cameras catch the daily struggle of creatures great and small.
EPISODE GUIDE Wild Alaska The rugged coast of the USA’s biggest state harbours some incredible wildlife. When winter breaks, animals make the most of the nightless summer.
