This package includes four episodes from the Wild Secrets series:
Part One - Lions: A Pride of Their Own
There comes a time when every young male lion is forced out of the pride in which he was born. Little was known about the lives of these nomads until a three-year study followed three brothers as they struggled to survive in the no-man's land between the prides.
Part Two - Leopard: Family Trees
This is a touching tale of a female leopard's struggle to raise two cubs in the harsh Savannah. One cub is bold and adventurous and the other is more cautious, preferring to stay close to her mother. Can both cubs survive this unforgiving environment, or will one fall victim to the deadly Savannah?
Part Three - Hyena: Family Matters
Always the bad guys in the movies, hyenas have suffered bad press as the scavengers of the Savannah. But there's another side to this story: hyenas are in fact bold hunters and scavenge less than lions. They are also devoted pack animals with a sophisticated ranking system.
Part Four - Golden Jackal: Home Helper
History portrays them as sly, cunning scavengers, and superstition links them to death and the underworld. But images can be deceiving. Golden jackals are fast and efficient hunters, but they're also devoted parents.
