Episode Summary

Wild Animals: Neighbors
More animals than could be imagined have come in from the wild - into our towns and even our homes. The Asian Elephant and man have developed a system of symbiotic cooperation. In this episode, an elephant, able to learn and respond to up to forty different commands, works for the Mahout or elephant-driver, who in turn looks after the elephant. In Thailand, we see macaques labouring to harvest coconuts. A trained monkey will do this up to 800 times a day for its master. Also sharing our world, are snakes whose skins and venoms have been used for medicinal purposes for years, and while only some snakes are killers, they are certainly the stuff of many nightmares. Animals have always worked hard for us; can we not find more room for them?moreless
