Wild Wives of Africa: The Mating Game

The Mating Game
Something other than the smell of fresh hippo dung lingers in the air over the African savannah - could it be love? Nat Geo WILD gets an intimate glimpse at mating season with the Wild Wives of Africa. Watch as Cathy the hippo is wooed by a male, and see the hippos' private mating dance. Josie the baboon doesn't care much for privacy, just so long as she finds a mate.
