Today, Born to be Wild’s Doc Ferds Recio continues his journey of discovering Japan’s wildlife. This time, he visits Miyagi where 200 foxes live in a “fox village”. The village caretakers say the foxes were saved from slaughter for the fur trade. Doc Ferds meets the foxes and documents their behavior. Although living under the care of people, some foxes still show their wild side and fight each other for territory.
Meanwhile, Doc Nielsen Donato and local DENR officials rescue a reticulated python that has been kept as a pet for 15 years. This snake has grown to 16 feet and is one of the largest snakes ever recorded and rescued on Born to be Wild.
Born to be Wild airs Sundays right after AHA! on GMA.
