Secret Life of Predators: Exposed

A lion cub waking up in a tree.

In the East African rift, where predators are confined to a narrow strip of land, witness remarkable altruism among lions and see firsthand how ferocious a group of seemingly playful olive baboons can be. Journey north to a high mountain plateau where the world's rarest wolf survives against all odds by hunting unusual prey.
