Excellent for older kids, but not for younger kids.

I thought this would be a fantastic idea for my 8 year old son to watch (he LOVES elephants) and so I showed this to him. It's a very educational, very good documentary about migrations, though it IS very iffy to show to my eight year old son. Multiple times I had to cover his eyes because it contained footage of elephants mating as well as fighting each other for the right to mate. Don't get me wrong, it's great that they put it in there, but I just don't think they should have aimed it for kids that young. Violence and elephant sex aside, the look at the poachers was very interesting but very disturbing. My eight year old was asking me why the bad people were killing the nice little elephant! He also asked me what it was that they were smoking which I could not give him a straight answer for. It's still a good documentary, just not for my kids
