The Life of Mammals

Meat Eaters

Series 1 - Episode 5 Meat Eaters



David Attenborough examines the hunting tactics of the world's carnivores. Arctic foxes in the frozen north must collect food during warmer times to survive the winter, while the big cats of the southern hemisphere rely on stealth and surprise to catch each meal. The presenter also reveals how leopards and tigers are solitary hunters, coming together only to mate, whereas lions stay in family groups so they can tackle larger prey and better protect their young.
