Follow the journey of a rebel named Black Wolf who breaks from his pack and survives to be one of the oldest wolves in Yellowstone. He'll travel paved roads most wolves avoid at all costs as he ventures out to mate with a rival pack's females. At nearly twice the age most wolves reach, Black Wolf's unorthodox lifestyle likely means he has more pups than any wolf in Yellowstone.


National Geographic cameras capture the action when he finally achieves alpha male status in his own pack.


Not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.

              At the end of watching this amazing story and footage on TV... there's a disclaimer right at the end of the show saying this was a fake story made up of a bunch of different videos of wolves in Yellowstone. Not sure what it really was I was watching.

                  great insight into the lives of wolves, too bad they still are hunted down because of old misconceptions, so lets educate the younger generation and maybe the killing will stop

Explore where they are found, how they begin, and how it may be possible to harness and use the power they produce. In Monster Black Holes, scientists steadily piece together the complex dynamics of a black hole's birth and also examine the growth of a select few black holes to super massive proportions that dominate the centers of galaxies. As a monster black hole swallows everything in its path, it generates energy that shapes the universe around it in powerful ways.

                  Across the United States, some 95,000 people desperately wait for a new organ, and often a second chance at life. But every year fewer than half of those people will receive an organ, and many will die waiting. The overwhelming desperation and demand have given rise to a global black market in body parts, and National Geographic correspondent Lisa Ling investigates this illegal and growing practice.

                  National Geographic examines the incredible size, speed and strength of some of the world's biggest bears—the polar bear, brown bear and black bear. All native to North America, these formidable creatures can weigh more than 1,000 pounds, outrun an Olympic sprinter and take out its prey with a single bite or swipe of the paw. Watch as National Geographic uses science, including MRI imaging, to deconstruct these bioengineering marvels to reveal the secrets behind the largest land-dwelling carnivores on earth—ultimate bears.

                  The dog is the ultimate human creation. With 400 breeds and counting, the dog is more varied in size and behavior than any other species on the planet. National Geographic looks at man's evolutionary manipulation of dogs' appearance, talents and temperament—and the accelerating efforts to create breeds to suit our needs (more than 80 percent of today's breeds did not exist 150 years ago). From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.

                  For over 500 million years, the jellyfish has survived in our oceans. Today, global warming and pollution may be contributing to a population explosion, as billions of these sometimes venomous creatures increasingly swarm around our beaches and shorelines. And though they have no bones, blood or brain, some jellyfish are armed with a deadly arsenal unlike any other on the planet. National Geographic dissects the fascinating physiology of this living fossil, from its 24 clustered eyes down to the tips of its stinging tentacles, and examines how man's impact on the environment may be creating a growing invasion.

Where did they come from? Dr. Spencer Wells, National Geographic explorer-in-residence and director of the National Geographic Genographic Project, goes on a mission to use advanced technology to decode the genetic identity of these unusually well-preserved mummies and open a unique window into the ancient migrations of mankind.

And, as any parent can testify, a remarkable transformation occurs over their first year. But what's happening behind what you can simply observe? From first breath to first step, National Geographic sheds light on the amazing developments in the first 12 months of life and how new research indicates that these growing abilities are much more flexible than previously known. Follow leading scientists as they study the remarkable plasticity of a very young brain, measure how early experiences influence the course of human development and deconstruct how babies can learn languages and even grasp math!

Examine the remarkable features of the croc—from its finely tuned pressure sensors used to detect prey to its lethal predation techniques; from its remarkable pulverizing stomach to its powerful immune system.
