Animal Planet’s ‘India: Wild Encounters,’ April 21 at 7 p.m., unravels the tales of some inimitable animals, besides providing enthralling glimpses of wildlife in general. Nepal’s Chitwan Valley is home to the tiger, peacock, langurs and macaques. The programme delves into the biology and social behaviour of the greater one-horned rhinoceros, (an ancient animal that survived the Pleistocene Ice Age), the gharial and the Ganges River Dolphins; king cobra; tigers of the Sunderbans and elephants.
‘Where Tigers Rule,’ April 25 at 9 p.m., is an opportunity to discover dark, deep woods, trace the big cat’s movements, watch a tigress bring up cubs, and meet Simon King, the popular star of ‘Big Cat Diary.’
Learn about tigers’ behaviour, predatory skills, family life and issues related to illegal poaching. Get interesting glimpses of the man-eating tigers from Sunderbans, motherly love at Bandhavgarh and a tiger family in Ranthambore. Actor John Abraham talks about the magnificent felines and Mike Pandey, a conservationist, lends his voice to the cause.
