Big cats, birds, and monkeys; ‘Wild Winners’ reveals the features and characteristics of these animal groups in a new light, by comparing and contrasting their unique skill set and focussing on what makes them special.
Imposing and powerful, elegant and swift; every big cat has a special characteristic that makes it a superstar in the cat family. Let the big cats of the world surprise you with their amazing versatility and strength, from the iconic tiger to the shy and rarely seen snow leopard.
Join us on a journey around the world, crossing every continent, habitat and climate zone – to meet the birds. There’s the Eider duck in the Arctic, ‘same sex’ albatross couples in Hawaii, the social Blue magpie of Sri Lanka and the larrikin cockatoos from Down Under. With their crazy calls, iridescent colours and acrobatic flying skills, the birds take centre stage.
Take a close look at our closest relatives and their surprising lives. The snub-nosed monkey is comfortable at 4,000 metres above sea level; the Japanese macaque endures winter in a natural jacuzzi and the Woolly spider monkey reaches hidden water sources by turning leaves into sponges.
