Episode 1: Everybody seems enamored with their tails today, except for Max, who doesn't think his tail is so special.

Mama is curious, and together they discover -- by looking at movies of various animals and their tracks -- that the print they saw wasn't left by any animal walking in the savanna today but, instead, was left by an impressive remnant of the distant past.
