Animal Odd Couples Debuts On PBS Nature (Videos)

Most 'birds of a feather' flock together, but some, apparently, go astray - like the goose who befriends a tortoise and even protects the tortoise's nice fresh pile of veggies from the thieving intentions of other geese.  The tortoise and the goose, the dog and the chimp, the lion and the coyote, and many more of nature's odd couples promise to provide hours of entertainment and insights this season in PBS Nature's new series Animal Odd Couples.
