There are millions of different types of animals on Earth, ranging from simple animals, such as sponges and worms, to more complex animals. Students focus on complex animals, specifically the major vertebrate groups: fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Specific examples of vertebrates are shown to illustrate the different characteristics of complex animals. Important terminology includes: vertebrae, backbone, gills, ectoderm, fins, metamorphosis, eggs, scales, feathers, and endotherm.
The garden gets many visitors from insects and animals. Gardeners work hard to keep destructive pests out of the garden, but they also welcome animals that are helpful to the plants in the garden. Part of the "Four Seasons in the Garden" series.
What do chimpanzees, Kodiak bears, and elephants eat? How do they get their food? Three children explore the similarities and differences between themselves and animals and the foods they eat. Shows closeups of animals eating and drinking, but focuses on chimps, bears, and elephants. Covers other characteristics of these three animals in addition to what they eat.
Scientists and conservationists use the latest technologies as they work to preserve and protect over 5,000 endangered animals. Some techniques include communication with animals, raising orphans, moving animals to new areas, and mating programs in zoos. Uses a Q and A format.
In each episode, viewers are given clues about a hidden animal inside a magic box. This episode is all about four-legged animals. Animals highlighted include: a deer, a camel, a dog, a horse, a pig, an elephant, a llama, a sheep, a rhinoceros, and a zebra. Part of the "Zoobabu" series.

Highlighted animals include: a whale, a crocodile, a dolphin, a frog, a sea horse, a jelly fish, a penguin, a gold fish, a shark, and a turtle. Part of the "Zoobabu" series.
Explores the fascinating features of the animal kingdom. The taxonomy of the different invertebrate and vertebrate phyla are the focus of the program, with special emphasis placed on the evolutionary relationships of the various phyla. Each of the major phyla are discussed, going from simple to more complex organisms. Other terminology includes: sponges, cnidarians, flatworms, roundworms, segmented worms, mollusks, arthropods, echinoderms, fishes, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals.
Live-action footage conveys basic features of the major invertebrate groups. Special attention is paid to the body structure and physical features of simple animals. Other terminology includes backbone, sponge, sea anemone, radial symmetry, planaria, earthworm, bilateral symmetry, exoskeleton, segmented body, and jointed appendages.
Presents the following songs about animals using American Sign Language: Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?; Itsy Bitsy Spider; Bat, Bat; Bear Went Over the Mountain; Croak!!! Said the Toad; Animal Parade; Froggy Went A-Courtin'; Animal Alphabet.
Observes the animals that make the Nile River their home, such as the baboon, spoonbill, crocodile, hippopotamus, African buffalo, elephant, cheetah, giraffe, lion, vulture, and ibis. Explores what they eat, where they find shelter, and how they live and play. Explains that they can only be found in remote places that are safe, where there is little contact with people, and where they can find food.
Lorena Gómez visits the Museum of La Salle University and takes a tour with Cristian, an expert on biodiversity. The tour highlights the fastest animals and insects in the world. Students learn about the fastest insect, the Australian tiger beetle, and the cheetah, the fastest animal on the planet.
A teddy bear and toy bunny serve as guides on a trip to a farm. They see and comment on a variety of baby farm animals: piglets, kittens, rabbits, calves, puppies, colts, ducklings, chicks, lambs, fawns, and kids. They also see a beekeeper fumigating a beehive with smoke in order to harvest the honey.
How do biologists answer questions and solve problems? Within the context of answering this question, data collection, recording, and analysis are overviewed. Examines two animal behaviors: feeding and communication. Illustrates the different behaviors of lions, alligators, and chimpanzees, and then highlights the "waggle dance" used by bees. Supports the learning of these concepts in tandem with the textbooks also offered by the publisher.
Explore the vastly different ecosystems of the rainforest and the jungle. This video discusses the diversity of their vegetation, animals, and insects. From the Kool Books series narrated by Hector Bonilla.
Explores the open savannahs of Africa, particularly the mammals that inhabit them and the trees that border the grasslands. Shows how the different animals interact with each other and the non-living elements of their habitat to maintain a healthy balance. Also investigates the threat from an increasing human population for homes, food, other resources, and the resultant threat to the survival of many animal groups. Looks at international breeding programs around the world, which were established to protect these animals and enable them to reproduce in captivity, so their gene pool is preserved.
The manta ray is the largest ray in the ocean. They have have cephalic lobes, or flaps, which help the manta funnel food into its mouth. These animals can even leap out of the water. Now that's one weird animal. Part of the "Weird Animal" series.
Animals have contributed to scientific advancements, but how ethical is it to use them in research? Viewers explore the legal and ethical issues concerning the use of animals in research. Part of the "Core Concepts in Psychology" series.
Most pet owners talk to their animals at one time or another, and some do every day. But, how much do pets actually understand? Is their perception anything like our own? These are the questions that fascinate Irene Pepperberg and she’s looking for answers from the animals themselves, specifically – African Grey Parrots. The Harvard psychology professor is a bit like the character Dr. Doolittle because she’s been talking to parrots for decades. With help from the National Science Foundation, she’s researching how much the birds understand about shapes, numbers, and colors. Her next phase of research involves how the parrots detect optical illusions, and whether they perceive them the way humans do. Her research will also reveal more about how a bird’s vision works.
This video outlines the complementary nature between structure and function. Students will observe specific animals that have structures geared towards a particular function. Topics covered include the structures and processes animals use involved in breathing, eating, passing waste, and moving. Part of the "Biology" series.
The answers to the age-old question 'What do women want?" just might be found in the animal kingdom. Scientists using unorthodox techniques and the latest technology are probing the mysteries of attraction. Discover how females are shaping the future of their species by choosing the best mates.
