S29 Ep2: The Animal House

Video duration: 50:54Expires: 03/13/14Video has closed captioning.

NATURE investigates what goes into making a home when you're wild and cost is not a factor. They may be single-use, multi-generational, or multi-purpose; they may be anything from a small depression in the sand to a many-chambered tunnel, a nest, a burrow, or a mound, but for animals big and small, these dwellings are always impressive home sweet homes.
