BBC - Life Disc 3: Hunters and Hunted (2010)

The ability to learn from past experiences and develop novel solutions to problems has allowed mammals to find prey and avoid being preyed upon in every environment on Earth. In this episode, a mother orca steals elephant seal pups from a nursery pool, teaching her calf a brand new form of predation. Stoats learn through play how to become deadly killers: When they grow up, unassuming rabbits many times larger than stoats pay a hefty price. Star-nosed moles hunt underwater by using bubbles to smell their prey; greater bulldog bats hunt fish by using echolocation to detect ripples in the water; and squirrels confound rattlesnakes by rubbing themselves in discarded snake skins.
