Theme: Everyone needs a home–a place to eat, sleep, take shelter, even raise a family.

When Hermit Crab outgrows his old house, he ventures out to find a new one. Finding it becomes particularly humorous when that home is carried on the crab’s back!

LeVar builds a house for the flying friends in his backyard while viewers watch the “Lifestyles of the Wild and Tameless” to see where a variety of animals live. Viewers visit scientists who work in the city to protect and provide roosts for peregrine falcons.
