More than 600 million claim residence in households across six continents, and now they may have dethroned dogs as the most popular pet on earth. An exterminator, fierce hunter, and favorite companion—aloof and affectionate at the same time—the cat leapt out of the woods and adopted us on its own terms thousands of years ago. But how did man and beast form their unconventional relationship? From mummified cats unearthed in Egypt to bizarre genetic mutations discovered around the globe, National Geographic presents the latest scientific evidence to reveal how cats and people set off on a journey along the same road.


This DVD Exclusive is one of the many titles in our National Geographic DVD Exclusives Library and is created in the DVD-R form. This disc does not feature menu pages or special features like standard DVDs, simply the high-quality programming you've come to expect from National Geographic.


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

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ

There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.

    Bones:
    Imagine breaking a rib just by coughing or having an internal organ turning to bone. These are just two of the many life-threatening challenges faced by Jake Grys and Holly Pullano, two people with extraordinary genetic bone disorders. Jake is a spirited 9-year-old boy who has broken practically every bone in his body, and Holly is a 28-year-old whose muscles and tendons can turn to bone after the slightest impact. Using advanced animation, National Geographic travels inside Jake's diminutive frame to discover what make his bones so brittle and explores Holly's inner workings to find out how organs can turn into bone, progressively encasing her in a second skeleton.

    Category: DVDs/Animals and Nature/Animals and Wildlife

    On Christmas Day 2007, a 243-pound Siberian tiger named Tatiana escaped from her open-air enclosure at the San Francisco Zoo and mauled three young men. Before long, one 17-year-old boy and the 4-year-old tigress lay dead. The incident was the first time a visitor was killed by an escaped animal at an accredited zoo in the United States. Zoo Tiger Escape investigates the how and why of what really happened that night—from the possible motivational factors that led the tiger to escape, to the complex evolution of enclosure design. The show provides exclusive documentary access to the San Francisco Zoo's efforts to reconstruct its tiger enclosure, as well as candid interviews with zoo staff members on the tragedy.
