WILDLIFE AT THE ZOO, ABC1, 8pm
THIS is the episode where Lucy Melo, who got crushed up against a post by a two-year-old 1200kg elephant, goes back to work at Taronga for the first time. It’s a pretty incredible story about Pathi Harn, the elephant’s birth, how he came to flip out that day, and that Lucy survived (40,000 muscles in an elephant’s trunk, apparently.) The other stories are prettier— especially the sumatran tiger. Also the baby echidna. Very special.
