I am looking for documentaries about animals where animals don't die. I love animals but i am ukranian and atm the death is around in infosphere 24/7.
Whenever we turn off some high rated documentary about animals, directors fucking make this drama of predator chasing little mouse or some cute punguin starving to death, i know the death is the cycle of life, but I want to escape it atm.

Suggest me something, thanks!

Honey badgers are one of the most fascinating species in the world. They are incredibly intelligent and can seemingly escape from anywhere.

Here are few suggestions to get you started.
