EXPLORE A LION AND A TIGER FROM THE INSIDE OUT IN
Inside Nature's Giants: Big Cats
Available on DVD from PBS Distribution May 15th
Arlington, Va. - April 16, 2012 - PBS Distribution today announced it is releasing Inside Nature's Giants: Big Cats on DVD. Most wildlife documentaries focus on animal behavior, but "Inside Nature's Giants" goes inside the largest animals on the planet to explore their anatomy, reveal their intricate inner workings and uncover their evolutionary secrets.
Veterinary scientist Mark Evans and comparative anatomist Joy Reidenberg dissect a lion and tiger at the Royal Veterinary College in the UK. On the outside, the lion and the tiger look very different; but once their skins are removed, even the experts find it hard to distinguish the two. One of the first questions they tackle is the anatomy of the roar - a characteristic that separates big cats from small. Then they move on to the big cats' powerful forearms, protractile claws, and powerful killing bite in an attempt to dissect the anatomy of the kill. Finally, the team travels to South Africa's Welgevonden Game Reserve to observe the lion in the wild to try and discover whether something about the cats' social lives can account for their wildly different appearances. "INSIDE NATURE'S GIANTS: BIG CATS" will be available on May 15, 2012. The DVD has a run time of 60 minutes and a suggested retail price of $19.99.
"Inside Nature's Giants" is produced by Windfall Films in association with Channel 4. Additional funding from National Geographic Channels and Wellcome Trust.
