Storyline

Primorye, a vast 'primordial forest' in the Russian Far East's Usuriya region near the river Amur, the Chinese border, has an extremely rich and varied wildlife. Its greatly varying seasons also attract some migratory species, while great cats like the Siberian tiger cover huge territories. Vast wetlands, marshes and lakes add to its variety.

Located in the far east of Russia, this area is incredible, hosting some unique animals....and I mean unique - they are only found here, nowhere else in the world.

Featured at the beginning, and then shown a few times at the end of the show, is the area's feature attraction (at least on this "Wild Russia" episode): the Amur Tiger. Not far behind him is the almost-never-seen and very rare Amur Leopard. These are spectacularly-beautiful animals. The narrator comments that there are only 30 left in the world - all here.

This program also offers nice shots and interesting information on the Ussuri black bears, who look cute but are deadly, and will attack humans, too. Also, the wild boars, the unique turtles and other sea creatures and maybe the weirdest of them all: a huge Blakistan Fish Owl which wades and water much of the night, grabbing fish. It's an incredible sight.

This entire Wild Russia is exactly like the famed "Planet Earth" series, meaning very interesting segments with incredible photography that took years to film. Great, great stuff!!
