Whoever said, "there is nothing to fear in the dark" has not seen this wildlife entry from National Geographic. With haunting after hour's cinematography, the documentary follows a pride of lions and the hard-working lioness as they hunt, sleep, eat, and fight under the disguise of a cool African night. Known as a symbol for beauty and power, this voracious cat can consume 75 pounds of meat in one carnivorous meal. The video is narrated by actor Richard Kiley and contains a substantial supporting jungle cast including the night prowling apes, crazed baboons, stampeding gnus, hard-charging warthogs, and the quintessential African animal, the zebra.
