We are most if not all familiar with wedding serimonies, as shown to us in popular media.
We got the bride, travelling up to the altar by her father's side, wearing that face concealing veil. Meanwhile the groom waits with the best man. Then afterwards the groom will carry the bride over the threshold, and then there is the honeymoon.
Without help from the World Wide Fund for Nature, these Kodiak bears might completely disappear.
They’ve got an unfortunate reputation, but sharks deserve to be saved too.
If you were endangered, wouldn’t you want someone to protect you?
The fate of Indonesia’s tropical rainforests means life or death to hundreds of animal species, like the Komodo dragon.
Saving coral reefs is vital for the survival of many kinds of marine plant and animal life.
The tiger. This beautiful beast might be gone very soon without our help.
Video: We share our planet with so many wonderful creatures. It’s up to us to preserve the Earth in all of its beauty and diversity. World Wide Fund for Nature works to protect the habitats of endangered species around the world. Its members are making a difference every day.
Advice: Do you love wild animals? Then don’t just sit still! Do something to protect them. Join World Wildlife Fund, plant trees, recycle, clean up a stream… These creatures need your help.
And that concludes this final chain. In the program, World Wildlife Fund leads to The Web of Life, which we’ve already covered.
Well, we’ve come to the end of our showcase of all the narration from Microsoft’s Dangerous Creatures. Thank you so much for reading, and special thanks to anyone who pointed out some outdated information. I hope you enjoyed it and found it informative.
I’ve never been good at conclusions, so thanks again. See you round.
These creatures are our friends. We can’t let them disappear.
If they can’t protect themselves, we must help them out.
When we pollute our water, we endanger our environment, our wildlife and ourselves.
What would you do if your neighbour was hurt? Why, you’d help him, of course. The same applies to animals.
Knowledge is the key to finding out how we can help our planet’s wildlife survive.
Zoos may be the only hope for some endangered species.
Every animal deserves to be left to live and thrive in its natural habitat.
Wild animals belong in the wild, not in the laboratory.
Video: The last known thylacine, or Tasmanian wolf, died in captivity in 1936. These animals are gone from the Earth forever.
Advice: Protecting animals means more than just getting people to stop shooting them. We’ve got to make sure they have places to live and raise their young, and the right prey or plants to eat as well.
Next: If we don’t start protecting animals, many will become extinct. World Wide Fund for Nature works to promote biodiversity. That means saving all the plants and animals on this planet.
A female rodent may spend her entire life having and raising babies. As many as seventy per year!
Why do rodents constantly gnaw and chew? They have a very good reason.
Many rodents have similar tracks. But the rat leaves a sweaty trail.
Rats are clean little animals. It’s the fleas they carry with them that transmit disease.
Who controls the rat patrol? Snakes, frogs and owls keep the rat population down.
To make life better for humans, rats have donated more than just time to medical research.
Rats can live almost anywhere, and will do anything to travel to new places.
Video: Rats are as much at home in a city as they are in the wild. Inside the walls of houses or in sewers under the streets. Rats live easily with humans.
Advice: All rodents have vicious teeth. So never try to pick up a wild rat. For that matter, don’t squeeze or tease a tame one. My brother’s pet mouse latched onto my finger once, and I thought I’d never get it off!
Following this in the program is a game called Whose Tracks Are These?: If a rat left its footprints across your floor, would you recognise its tracks? Test your skill at identifying animal tracks.
What’s coming tomorrow follows that: Even when you don’t see wild animals, you can discover where they live from examining their tracks. Finding out where and how they live is the first step in a programme for protecting them.

Eels generally dine on small fish, molluscs and crustaceans. In some places, the eel itself may be on the menu.
Deep in the dark water, these bizarre-looking eels, called gulper eels, use glowing lures and cavernous mouths to catch their prey.
Moray eels come in colours and patterns. The ribbon eel, famed for its beauty, is a favourite of aquarium owners.
The eel only bites if it’s threatened, or mistakes some part of a person for its usual food.
If you’re diving in eels’ habitat, don’t stick your hand down that hole! A waiting eel may think it’s a fish.
Video: Moray eels always have their mouths open – not for biting, but for breathing. Although occasionally one might challenge a diver, it’s usually the people who are disturbing the eels, not the other way around.
Advice: If you’re ever unlucky enough to have a moray bite you, experts say you should grin and bear the pain. The eel will eventually let go and swim away. Then you can do the same.
And that’s the end of this chain. In the program, Moray Eel leads to Stingray, which we’ve already covered.
And now for the very last chain of all. It begins with a game called The Meeting Place, so tomorrow’s article follows on from that: All over the world, many animals share their environments with rats.
