Planet Carnivore

There's no denying that we live in a dog-eat-dog world. While we compete to survive, animals are doing what they have to in order to stay alive. On the National Geographic Channel's series Planet Carnivore, see how the top dogs of the animal world remain the big guys.

Malkia has been in charge for 16 years. In that time, she has mastered her skills and is at the top of the food chain. As the oldest lioness inside Ngorongoro in East Africa, she reigns over a mighty kingdom. Yet even for the "Queen," life inside isn't always easy. Since no outside lions have come into the pride for 40 years, deadly illnesses are quickly killing off many of the lions in her area. In Lion, NGC follows the ups and downs of her daily life in Ngorongoro.

In the cold waters of South Africa's False Bay, Haai, a great white shark, makes life difficult for many of her neighbors. NGC follows Haai as she does what she knows how to do best: hunt. However, the competition is heating up as younger, faster great whites are getting in on the food action. Will age and experience win out over speed and youth? See for yourself in Great White Shark only on NGC.

Gaining weight isn't a problem for most of us. Imagine if you had just 10 weeks to eat all of the food you needed for an entire year. This is exactly what Binne, a polar bear, must do. Unfortunately, the changing world has caused her food supply to move further down the coast and she has no choice but to go after it. If she doesn't have the blubber to get through the winter, Binne's days will be numbered.

Planet Carnivore explores the lives of these vicious animals to see what it takes to survive in their rough and ever-changing world.
