This is the story of one of the most successful family of predators on Earth—cats—and their epic rise to power. In this series, zoologist Patrick Aryee journeys around the world to some of the planet’s wildest places, unearthing the cat family’s wide and diverse family tree. From the majestic Siberian tiger, to the agile, tree-dwelling margay, we will see a rich variety of cat shapes, colours, and sizes. Today, there are some 37 different species of cats spanning jungle, mountains, deserts, and grasslands. They can jump higher, run faster, and climb better most groups of animals on Earth. Big Cats will reveal the amazing stories of how some of the most powerful cat dynasties came to be.
