Why do some animals build structures and others don't? And how do animals decide where to build? Animal homes need to be safe and secure, protected from predators and the weather. An eagle's nest can weigh up to one ton, a termite mound can stand eight feet tall, and some falcon nest sites have been around for centuries. Going above ground and under, NATURE investigates just what goes into making a home when you're wild and cost is not a factor.

"Animal House" premieres on PBS Wednesday November 2, 2011 at 8pm and is part of the 30th season of the Peabody and Emmy award-winning series produced by Thirteen in association with WNET.ORG for PBS. Major support provided by Canon U.S.A. Inc.
