Secrets of Wild India: Tiger Jungles

A tiger lying along a muddy pool with its reflection in the water.
Tucked away from the densely populated cities of India lies an ancient jungle where wildlife must battle to survive. This is the real story of the jungles of central India made famous by Rudyard Kipling's “Jungle Book.” Bears, boars, monkeys, mongoose and more all coexist in the world of predator and prey. We'll also meet the two most feared animals in the hierarchy of the jungle: the Bengal tiger and India's wild dog. Join us as we witness how the battle of survival is heightened dry season.
