If you tune into Rocky Mountain PBS on February 1st (tonight) at 7:00 p.m. and Nature's state of the art, animatronic spy cameras will give you access to something that, up until now, only baby crocodiles have had access to.
Nature's five part miniseries, "Spy in the Wild," employs 30 animatronic spy cameras disguised as animals to secretly record the animal's behaviors, revealing strong, complex and very humanlike interactions and emotions.

The final episode, "Meet the Spies," which airs Wednesday, March 1, 2017, explains how the concept of robotic animal spies evolved from the original Bouldercam to the Penguincam and finally to the “spycams” John Downer Productions used to make the series.
While the painstaking work that goes into building the lifelike models may be discouraging, it may also inspire professional private investigators to develop the next generation of surveillance techniques.
