Nature documentaries tend to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time, introducing viewers to many animal societies but rarely going in depth; this one benefits from its tiny focus. David Attenborough's Ant Mountain would be interesting enough if it only showed the life cycle of ants as a whole from a first-hand perspective, but the colonies of Jura Mountains are unique among ants. Viewers will walk away with a new understanding of these tiny creatures in general, as well as insight into how the denizens of Ant Mountain can live together peacefully.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
