Secret Life of Predators
What Lies Beneath+
Our rivers and oceans are ruthless battlefields, constantly testing the bravery of even the biggest and deadliest carnivores. Regardless of temperature, depth or terrain, every marine habitat calls for unique body designs, exquisitely evolved senses, and outrageously complex - or bizarre - tactics for success
In Plain Sight+
In stark contrast to the forest there are places on Earth where meadows, tundra or fields of ice stretch in every direction as far as the eye can see. Without trees to buffer wind, temperatures are extreme.
In our planet's liquid space, predators of all shapes and sizes face incredible obstacles to success - and survival, because underwater battlefields test the mettle of even the biggest and deadliest carnivores.
If you're a forest predator, success requires using trees to bridge the gap between life and death. In this realm, danger - or your next meal - could be behind you, below, or above you. Whether you're a Harpy eagle, zeroing in on prey from high in the rainforest canopy, a cunning weasel, scouring for a meal in and out of mossy logs, or a Bengal tiger, trying to stalk in a bare, dry forest, catching prey among the trees is a challenge.
Worldwide, predators that inhabit open spaces must hide in plain sight in order to thrive. On the vast plains of the African savanna, banded mongooses rely on strength in numbers in order to succeed in a land of giants.
The hunters are forced to specialize, develop unexpected strategies and display incredible fortitude. Our perception of some of the most iconic predators will be turned upside down, and we'll be introduced to a few surprising carnivores.
