WILDLIFE AT THE ZOO, ABC1, 8pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Friday -

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.
