Comments: 01 - Trenches • 02 - Open Ground • 03 - Coliseum … Nice picture and camera work. A little slow and repetative but overall enjoyable for the moments that come

Summary: This series studies an array of predatory models in each location, and then looks at why particular animals are able to lift themselves above the rest. Sometimes starvation drives predators to the extreme – as in Savute, where a particular lion pride unlocks the key to hunting elephants. Or vicious competition drives them to hyper-efficiency – as in Ndutu, where cheetahs team up to out-hunt hyena mega-clans… Or sometimes the chance to kill comes so rarely that when it does appear every effort is put into the killing blow – as at the Grumeti river, where massive crocodiles wait an entire year for one feast.

Part 1: Trenches
In two great rivers in East Africa, contrasting neighborhoods demand different hunting strategies: Crocodiles on the Mara River live a life of luxury. Wildebeest are easy to drown in the fast-flowing deep water. While on the Grumeti River, the crocodile gang, lead by “DC”, the Dominant Croc, has to constantly change its game to match unpredictable prey and their volatile river.

Part 2: Open Ground
In the wild predators have an unquestioned instinct to kill, honed by evolution and fuelled by a need to survive. Some killers’ performance is set apart from the rest, their trump card, tactics that fit their terrain. Get a close up look at the killer tactics of two of Africa’s most iconic predators. In a piece of prime territory in the south east corner of the Serengeti, we see the extraordinary lengths that Cheetah and Lion will go to secure a meal.

Part 3: Coliseum
The wild predators have an unquestioned instinct to kill, honed by evolution and fuelled by a need to survive. Some killers’ performance is set apart from the rest, their trump card, tactics that fit their terrain. Get a close up look at the killer tactics of two of Africa’s most iconic predators. In northern Botswana is a piece of prime territory: Savuti. Here we see the extraordinary lengths that a pride of lions and a young leopard will go to, to secure a meal.
