Animals play strange roles in our lives. Often, critters captivate those of us in the of the so-called dominant species. Our debut show includes four stories and a poem. Students search for salamanders in Stanford's Lake Lagunita. A scientist hatches a plan to "Re-wild" North America with endangered predators from Africa. Cats and Dogs inflict drama on couples who try to co-own them. Elephants may or may not have rescued tourists in Thailand, and Fireflies illuminate the soul in a poem by Troy Jollimore. Will animals captivate you this week?

Stanford’s Lake Lagunita was historically a place for sunbathing, skinny dipping and homecoming bonfires, but now it looks more like a mud flat than a lake. This is a story about a tiny animal who has transformed this Stanford landmark.
