Episode Summary

Planet Carnivore: Lions
Narrated by critically acclaimed actor Alec Baldwin, Planet Carnivore takes viewers on an intimate and powerful high-definition journey into the unique neighborhoods of some of some of most fearsome predators on the planet. The program divulges the dramatic stories of an African lioness and a great white shark and their gripping daily struggle for survival. Planet Carnivore transports you deep inside Ngorongoro, an isolated volcanic crater in East Africa formed over two million years ago. Surrounded on all sides by walls reaching 2,000 feet high, Ngorongoro seems like a stunning paradise for its inhabitants. Thirteen thousand wildebeest, zebra and buffalo graze on the 12-mile crater floor. This land is where one of the crater's oldest lionesses, Malkia, or "Queen" in Swahili, reigns over her kingdom. Planet Carnivore: Lions follows Malkia and her pride's daily struggles as they endure failed attacks on prey, fierce rivals, unexpected invaders and the powerful loss of one of their own.moreless
