I haven't tried yet because they showed the series three times on Animal Planet here over the past year. Amazon France has it but I think the DVD they sell is a heavily edited version (though to be honest it probably works better from a normal viewing perspective heavily edited - 30-40 minutes on setting up a display of naked mole rats for a local school isn't rushing it.. but I learned quite a bit "not many people know" about naked mole rats). There is an English soundtrack option on the DVD. The link I gave is for the producers of the program and what I'll do when I get around to buying is to write to them. Did they not have a copy at Elsa's? Would they have anything to show it with if they did?

Lynn, hmmm... that would be a fun job for me. The latest Meru news can be found on Go to news. Sounds like everything is going great except for the Grevy's zebras.

Joeyi, before you go, I recommend that you check out any of the Joy Adamson's books ("The Spotted Sphinx" comes to mind -- about her cheetah Pippa). It will give you a historical perspective about Meru. I think it will enhance your experience greatly. In the northern part of the park, there is Pippa's gravesite -- very cool if you have read the book.

thanks for the reading recommendation, that sounds like a good choice. i have been thinking about getting the Born Free movie and watching that, i haven't seen it in years.
