Animal devotees and baby lovers can unite over this Animal Planet production documenting youngsters of varied species as they come of age. Watch, learn, and say "aww" at the quirks and awkward similarities of zebras, rhinos, hyenas, and giraffes as they gain footing in a world new to them.
For the first time on DVD, you can enter the world of Elephants, Zebras, Giraffes and Hyenas, as baby animals find their way through their young lives with the help of some professional human caregivers.
GROWING UP ELEPHANT
His keepers describe Maximus as cocky and quick to learn. Witness the miraculous birth and a year of baby elephant's firsts, as Maximus goes from a 300-pound baby to an 11,000-pound giant.
GROWING UP ZEBRA
SanWild Animal Sanctuary founder Louise Joubert raises three baby zebras. Cassidy, a badly injured foal, grows into a mischievous rascal. He and his two cohorts, Shadow and Sky, experience joys, adventures, and adversity in their journey back to the wild.
GROWING UP GIRAFFE
An orphaned giraffe is placed in the care of two keepers at a northern California wildlife sanctuary. Keepers Kim and Sheri fill Kulula the giraffe's tragic life with hope and devotion as they prepare her to join the sanctuary's herd.
GROWING UP HYENA
The hyena is often relegated to the role of skulking scavenger - always the villain and never the hero. But one man is committed to showing the world that hyenas are intelligent, strong and fearless predators - to be respected and not maligned.
