The cougar, or mountain lion, is secretive and solitary, inhabiting the remote regions of the Rockies Mountains where man rarely ventures. It can leap forward over 40 feet and jump 18 feet straight up in the air. Its stealth and skill as a mountain hunter are legendary but rarely witnessed.
Wildlife filmmaker Jim Dutcher and Dr. Morris Hornocker, the world’s leading mountain lion expert, spent two years in the wilds of Idaho to produce this rare and intimate portrait of a five-year old cougar and her three kittens. Through spectacular photography, the elusive cougar is revealed as both predator and guardian, a mysterious phantom in nature’s hidden world.
Probably no other sea animal has captured our affection and attention like the dolphin. Its intelligence and athleticism has fascinated observers for years. Dolphins seem to exhibit a friendly willingness to co-operate with humans…something very rare in the wild animal kingdom.
We think we know them – racing through aquariums and performing at marine parks. But dolphins are more complex animals, with the capacity for language and affection. In DOLPHINS: Tribes of the Sea we travel the world to see how dolphin groups in different locales interact with humans. And we visit researchers as they discover just how intelligent and clever and intuitive dolphins really are.
The Amiga River Basin is the largest rainforest on earth. Truly, this area is one of the world’s most beautiful and unspoiled places. It is dense, rich, tropical and brimming with life.
Here runs the Rio Negro river – a lifeline, dark and black, but pure as any water in the world. Know as the Golden River it is host to some of the most remarkable and fascinating wildlife on earth.
For the people and creatures which reside here, the river is their life’s blood. Trade of sugar, coffee and other commodities is still the major monetary exchange. And the world’s aquariums glisten with some of the most unusual and spectacular amphibian and aquatic life. Dive in and discover the secrets of The Golden River.
Barely visible to the human eye, a truly fascinating universe lives in the bush and savannas of Africa. Here, creatures small, smaller and nearly invisible share a world with gigantic animals. Usually overlooked, often feared and despised, theirs may be a small world, but it’s an important one.
Remarkable photography reveals some of the hundreds of invertebrates that thrive and support lives far larger than their own. Give this fascinating and tiny world a closer look and you’ll discover the big wonders of small creatures.
No film has ever captured the true nature of the king of beasts like LIONS: Kings of Africa. Wildlife cinematographers spent an entire year living among a lion pride in the Ngorongoro Crater in Northern Tanzania where three generations – cubs, adolescents, and leaders – revealed their fascinating royal lives. The crater is a natural enclosure that supports zebra, wildebeest, buffalo and other lion prey.
In this fantastic setting you’ll witness adolescents learning the art of hunting; the introduction of newborn cubs to the pride; the struggle for survival during the dry season; and many other rare images of birth, life and death in the pride.
The great wildebeest migration from the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya to Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park is a spectacle of life and death witnessed by few humans…until now. Baron Hugo van Lawick who has made the Serengeti his home for over 25 years, has filmed this remarkable epic of survival – the greatest migration of land animals on the planet – in vivid, riveting detail. At the start of the migration the wildebeest herd is one and half a million strong. But, the journey is plagued with predators.
Cheetahs stalk and chase the strays. Hyenas and wild dogs shadow the herd and attack the calves. Leopards drag their kill into the trees. Lions seem to appear from nowhere – springing from the tall grasses. And crocodiles – monsters over 20 feet long – lurk in the shallows of the Grumeti River waiting for the thirsty herd. But just like every year, the wildebeest complete their great African migration while birthing an incredible half a million young along the way.
