NATURE | Love in the Animal Kingdom

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Watch Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 8pm on WMHT TV

Animals dance, sing, flirt and compete with everything they’ve got to find and secure a mate. For many, the all-important bonds they share as a couple are what enable the next generation to survive. Can we call these bonds love? In this delightful, provocative look at the love life of animals, watch the feminine wiles of a young gorilla, the search for Mr. Right among a thousand flamingos, the open “marriages” of blue-footed boobies, the soap opera arrangements of gibbons and all the subtle, outrageous, romantic antics that go into finding a partner.

Phylogenetic trees can tell us where medical problems come from, and how to fight them.
