Tiger: Spy in the Jungle

This documentary film follows the lives of four growing tiger cubs using footage captured by elephants carrying hidden cameras. For two years elephants helped record the most intimate portrayal of tigers ever filmed. Narrated by David Attenborough, watch as the cubs grow, and move from their mother’s milk onto meat. Fortunately for the cubs, their mother is a skilled hunter, teaching them the required skills as they grow. Charger, their imposing father, keeps his distance but helps to protect his vulnerable offspring from rogue male tigers and leopards.

As the tigers head to a water hole to cool down from the hot sun, the spy-cams reveal that these jungle pools a magnet for a whole array of forest animals, including wild boars and sloth bears. But it doesn’t take long before disaster strikes, both parents are injured during a fight with a rogue male.

But the cub’s biggest challenge is learning to hunt for themselves, but their mother soon loses patience. Many new animal stars make their appearance, including an irresistible jackal family that has to cope when the tiger family invades their backyard, and a flock of peacocks that tease the tigers by playing a game of dare.
