Watch a prairie dog bury a snake alive



Don't let the nice weather keep you from tonight's big lineup at the International Wildlife Film Festival.

You can catch Rise of the Black Wolf at the Wilma at 7 p.m., followed by a Q&A with Emmy-winning filmmaker Bob Landis. After the Q&A, watch the 50-minute "American Serengeti," which includes this confrontation between a team of prairie dogs and one hungry rattler:

If you're looking for an earlier screening, catch CBC's "One Ocean: The Changing Sea" at 5 p.m. You'll learn about the Humboldt squid, an animal that looks like a strobe light when it feeds:

Lastly, if tonight doesn't work for you, make note of Saturday's screening of the Best of Festival winner, "Echo: An Unforgettable Elephant." This BBC special not only won IWFF's top prize, but also Best Shot (for Echo's "dying eye"), Best Presenter/Host and an honorable mention for Best Script. You can actually watch the whole episode below, but maybe just check out the dying eye shot in the opening scene and catch the rest on the Wilma's big screen Saturday at 7 p.m.

Watch the full episode. See more Nature.
