Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter

This video is part of a series produced by the BBC, which examines the lives of animals in the wild. The series is hosted by naturalist David Attenborough, who is a knowledgeable guide on this tour of animal habitats and behaviors. In this episode, Attenborough introduces the viewer to some animals who are natural friends or enemies. When two animal foes meet, the result is often a fight. First-rate photography captures some skirmishes. Other animals have developed symbiotic relationships, such as the raven and the wolf or the cowbird and its namesake. The film captures some touching moments among friends.
