Program Description

NOVA takes an unprecedented look at a dangerous predator. Surviving virtually unchanged since the days of the dinosaur and found throughout the world, these remarkable creatures have the tools for survival. Long known as vicious hunters, new photographic techniques now allow viewers to see them cooperating with each other and protecting their families. From tiny babies hatching from the shell, viewers see them grow into great beasts capable of standing up to a lion and bringing down a zebra.
