Enchanting Stories of an Elephant Family.
|Echo and her elephant family stampede onto DVD in this spectacular two-disc set! Echo is extremely wise, an experienced mother and commanding matriarch of her family. Shes also an African elephant, and arguably one of the most famous elephants in the world through all the programs that documented her and her family for decades in Kenya's Amboseli National Park. Now all of the programs featuring these beloved elephants are available together on DVD for the first time! While it may seem that Echo and her clan live quiet lives, their days are filled with mating battles, difficult births, health problems, kidnappings, emotional reunions, mischievous children, and, occasionally, death at the hand of a hunter. But with all her experience and knowledge, the 60-year old matriarch has been able to successfully lead her family through difficult times. It was also no small feat for researcher Cynthia Moss, who has followed the charismatic Echo and her herd for over 30 years. Containing eight programs packed with stunning footage, this collection is definitely not to be missed!|
