Nature: Great Zebra Exodus - 6 stars out of 10

Nature: Great Zebra Exodus - 6 stars out of 10

PBS’s Nature series explores the nomadic life of zebras in this surprising documentary.  There are moments that will make zebras your new favorite animal as they play and run, but other moments that will make it hard to look at a zebra in the same way, like when the stallion realizes that one of the new foals is not his.  The documentary also gives some attention to the meerkats that live alongside the zebras in the saltpans of Botswana.  This installment in the Nature series is definitely not as good as “Raccoon Nation” or “My Life As A Turkey,” but it is still educational and contains some amazing shots of African wildlife.  I recommend “Great Zebra Exodus” to any fan of these striped creatures, but be prepared for one of the most brutal scenes that I have experienced in any movie.
