      When we lived in Florida I drove a black car that was always shiny. One of our neighbors raised 3 geese that roamed a 2-block area. I loved those geese! Not mutual though: they always ran to my car and tried to attack it! Gave me such a good laugh!!

      That's funny! But geese are very selfish with what they consider their "territory" and are also very bad tempered! Once you accept that, you are okay.

      I've had the chance of being around big/predatory animals before in a captive setting, and I think there's 2 big things that come into play when a large/predatory animal meets you: 1)The actual size and lethality of the predator itself. Most large animals don't feel threatened by humans when you move slow, have neutral body language, soothing voice etc. etc. 2) The propensity for violence that you possess. I feel like animals sense lethality/violence as well in people. I'm a martial artist for life, have competed, sword fought, hunted with bows/guns etc. etc. and 99% of animals immediately are subservient or at least passive with me. It's like the same thing when two bad ass martial artists are in the same room. There's a mutual respect.
      Never been attacked by anything above 10lbs. Been 5 ft from a smaller black bear, been warded off by a mountain lion, surfed with dolphins, had some really cool experiences with wild life.

      That said, you see a hyena with catnip and a lot of that fear will go away. Not the respect, but the fear. They react about the same as your average house cat.

    Reading the comments, it’s very interesting and heartwarming how each of us gets touched by the connection from the different human/animal relationships. To me the dolphins made my eyes sparkle, something about them working to help not only one but the whole fisherman community is just so wholesome, such intelligent and beautiful creatures! I’ve got nothing but respect for the dolphins and the fishermen.

    I especially admire how courageous Liz was through this amazing documentary. I am quite sure my heart would've stopped a few times. The bonds were so touching to watch, there's really so much about nature we are yet to fully understand. As for Kevin Richardson I think his understanding of animal is incredibly fascinating, one that's proven to be rather accurate and sure deserves a close study for future generations

    A random raccoon broke into my shop just over a year ago. I am positive she had a bad experience with a large cyote pack that night because I had heard the largest cyote celebration ever.
    Molly as we named her, immediately fell in love with my girlfriend, my cat and mostly with me.
    We all shared so much love that it felt like a lifetime. At 6 weeks Molly went to a refuge where she still lives with her new family. She is now a momma

      I agree. Society says that it's a psychological problem to deeply bond with an animal but in reality it's people with very narrow thinking who keep saying that. Bonding between humans is an emotional thing that doesn't have to do with sharing blood, similarly why couldn't we emotionally bond with other animal species? We are animals too.

    That hippo is really something. I’m not surprised that a polar bear could bond with a person because I’ve seen many other kinds of bears do so, but all my life I’ve only ever heard that hippos are possibly the most aggressively dangerous animal around. To see one calmly following a human’s lead without any apparent discomfort was pretty surreal to me

    I'd say all animals appreciate a loving scratch and a good belly rub because animals rely extremely by sense. Touching, sniffing, body contact is almost everything to them. Vocabulary isn't a dominant way of communication. It's a way of letting each other where they are, but once they find each other, the touch and smell take over.

      @L G Thanks for doing that research on the hippo. I had the best dog ever (pit bull mix) and there was only one time that he almost bit me while playing. He had been a stray and I'd adopted him and that one time was the only time he ever even made me think he'd messed up and been too aggressive. It happens with animals and it's no reason to fear them, just a reason to be careful, sometimes.

    3:30 Marc is the only person in the world who has this kind of bond with a fully grown Polar bear.
    Marc literally looks like the older brother of the German zoo keeper Thomas Dörflein, who raised an ice bear cub named "Knut" in the Berlin Zoological Garden, and who sadly passed away after a heart attack in 2008, before Knut was fully grown. Likewise sadly, Knut also died relatively young at the age of 4 under tragic circumstances.

      @JahGaming Good points. Just because you can bond with certain creatures doesn't mean that those bonds work out well for the animals.
      For the most part an animal tolerating your presence is a friendly enough gesture. If wildlife lets you approach you're cool. Don't snatch wildlife so you can bond with it. Most animals are way smarter than we give them credit for.

    The guy with the hyenas blows my mind. He plays with them like domesticated dogs but if they sense for a second they can climb up the dominance hierarchy, hes gonna get seriously hurt or killed, and he still spends time with them. Talk about dedication to your craft.

    I'm really glad to see this and films of this type working to change peoples perception of animals and their intellegence levels. It is a shame that one of our weaknesses in our nature is to assume that we are the only spieces of animal who have high levels of intellegence and emotion. In my opinion, what needs to change is the perception that this is OUR planet when it is not. We are just one of the species on this planet and if we change the way we think and start living in a harmonious way. This planet may become beautiful again. selah.

    The Questions this woman ask have simple answers. Being around the animals early is probably the most important part of bonding. 1st would be respecting the animals and know that you are all connected. This isn't anything new to the original caretakers of the planet. Glad to see some people are treating the most high Animals with the respect and love they deserve!😎💯

    The guy with the polar bear was so sweet. You can tell when he says he loves her, but his logical minds hedges his emotions when he says "It's just a really special bond. I love her a lot. I can't say she loves me. She really is bonded to me." But then his wife so confidently says "She loves him. She loves him. There's no doubt." You can see it in his eyes right there. The very thought that this beautiful animal could love him as much as he loves her means the world to this man, and that can only happen when you love someone else with all your heart.

    Dolphins are so remarkable, so much so in their symbiotic relationship with the fisherman. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. They appear to have the men well-trained, apart from anything. The singular aspect of animal behaviourists, which is lost on no one, is their dread fear of anthropomorphism.

    I love all creatures, but I have never thought about Hyenas much, the portrayal you see on wildlife programmes is of a fickle animal, nippy and scrappy. But I just fell in love seeing this side to them. They are absolutely Beautiful ! Aww how lucky to get that close to one and be able to sit and scratch a Hyenas ears and stroke it. A lovely interaction and it’s been incredible for me to have been able to see this.

    For those who do not know, that a goose can be very much like a guard dog! Many people who raise chickens will also put a baby goose in with the chickens, and that goose will defend those chickens with its life... A goose will fight off a fox any kind of bird of prey And will probably chase away any human being that comes near the chickens

      I'll never forget my first time face to face with a mad goose. I was fishing with my friends on a very hot day in May at one of our secret fishing spots. We skipped school that day since it was the end of the year and finals were done. There was no trail at the lake since no one else fished there. We just finished smoking a joint and we were trekking through the woods along the shore to find a nice spot when we heard a LOUD hissing sound. We looked to our right and there was a huge goose spreading its wings hissing at us about 2 meters away. We could see a nest behind it. That goose was ready to fight us to the death and it kept walking toward us. We just backed away slowly and it let us go on our way. Don't even get me started on the time I got chased by a rabid raccoon while I was on LSD.

    All of these animals respond to vibration. They can sense your fear and your love. If you're nervous they'll know it. If you come in peace they'll know it. What's just as important if not the most important thing is to respect their territory and their belongings or property with love.

    I had a hummingbird visit me for about 3 years. Not sure why she picked me. She brought her babies to see me once and they all hovered in front of me for 10 seconds and she used to come in my house if I left the back door open. I never fed or tried to tame her but I did talk to her almost everyday. This video makes me miss my little homie.

    My Doberman named Blu weighed more than me. I taught him to be gentle. I also dated someone with a huge GSD who was known to be very protective and scary that her dad said no one can get close to him other than his family -- I proved him wrong in just a few days. There was a lot of barking and growing when I was over though. Gentle and dominance through your eyes is the key.
