Too many topics in too short a time. It would be better to narrow the number of topics so we could perhaps retain more detail in order to follow up at a later time.

This is fantastic! Really great to be able to see little snippets of things going on throughout the world in the animal kingdom. You never hear about this kind of stuff on the news.
