Bengal Tigers are known to mimic Sambar deer calls, while Siberian Tigers can mimic Asian black bears. Sloth bears have been known to run upon hearing actual sambar deer in the belief that they were in the presence of tigers. See more »

Imaginative entertainment ...............
22 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dragons appear in the histories of many distant civilizations, enough to raise the speculation of their existence. This film documents in a very logical way, the finding of a dragon frozen in a Carpathian Mountain ice cave. The wildly imaginative story of how this dragon lived and died is the basis for this wonderful film. The c.g.i. images of dragons in their imagined habitats is simply outstanding. Though based on legend, "Dragon's World" is far more entertaining than most reality shows, which are limited by facts. These are not merely bones in a cave, they tell a story that spans the ages, and lets your imagination take flight with the magnificent flying, fire breathing beasts. Highly recommended. - MERK
