The Most Chill Nature & Animal Shows To Watch High

List RulesVote up the best animal and nature shows to watch while stoned.

For those of us who enjoy leaning back and getting baked while watching some good old-fashioned television, there are rarely any shows better for that activity than nature doumentaries. For whatever reason, watching animals frolic about helps to get us through the smoothest of highs, which is why the more serene and wonderful an animal series, the better it is to watch while partaking... in places where it's legal, of course!

Now, you don't want to put just any nature documentary or series on the boob tube when you're getting your smoke on - some of them can be quite disturbing or a little too intense if you just want to chil out. It's best to find a nature series suitable for the purpose. It should be chill enough to keep you from getting too engrossed, but interesting enough to keep the viewing going. The soothing tones of narrator David Attenborough is a plus. Here are the shows best suited to the task, presented in order from most chill to least, but feel free to vote up your favorites below!
