Fascinating.
16 April 2014 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

3 part documentary about a tiger mom raising 4 babies in the wild, more precisely in the Pench Tiger Reserve in central India. They managed to come up close by using elephants for transport, which tigers don't feel disturbed by, and lots of camouflaged cameras. Resulting in rare and pretty much unseen-before footage, also thanks to sheer luck I guess because everything seemed to work out in the best way the filming crew could have hoped for.

Be aware though that they also show those tigers hunting and feeding on their prey, so depending on your sensitivities this documentary might not be suitable for children. Still, what's shown is not too gruesome plus it's how nature works after all.

Highly recommended.
