ALONE ON THE PROWL
Most cats prefer the single life. Usually, big cats only tolerate company In order to mate or to raise their cubs. Big cats communicate with scent marks or roars to let their neighbors know, "This is my space. Keep out!"


But there’s one big exception: lions. Lions are the only cats that live in social groups, called prides. Within a pride, nearly every female is related. Moms, sisters, aunts, and cousins all work together to raise cubs and hunt for enough food to support the pride. A dominant male or two will guard the pride’s territory. He also babysits the cubs while their mothers are off hunting.


Young males are forced to leave the pride once they are old enough to hunt for themselves. These lions sometimes form small, all-boy gangs, called bachelor groups. The youngsters stay together until they’re big enough to challenge a dominant male for control of a pride.

To reveal the secrets of the most mysterious of all big cats, a crack team of conservationists hire one of the U.S.'s finest trackers, Boone Smith, to locate, capture and film wild jaguars using all means necessary. Jaguars are notoriously elusive, and consequently the least studied of all big cats. Chance sightings and occasional captures have helped explain some aspects of jaguars' lives, but mostly they operate beyond the reach of scientists. Boone’s mission clashes his experience in the wilderness of the Rockies with the hazards of Belize's jungles and Brazil's swamps. He needs to learn quickly from local experts and draw deeply on his own expertise to achieve their goal: to reveal startling new insights into the hidden lives of these magnificent creatures.
