Follows the birth and first days of several species, from marmoset to moose to elephant and gorilla. 

Born Wild airs Sunday, May 9 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT 21.1/ cable 1011 and 11). 

The most important moment of an animal’s life is its birth. The newborn emerges from dark safety to find anxious parents clucking or mewing. The first hours are some of the most dangerous. This film follows the birth and first days of several species, from marmoset to moose to elephant and gorilla. It is a film of miniature drama and huge spectacle, and comes to some surprising conclusions about human beings.
