World-first as leopards filmed hunting in pitch black

2 weeks ago 26

African leopards have been filmed hunting at night for the first time as part of Sir David Attenborough's latest series - Mammals.

It focuses on how these animals are adapting to a world rapidly changed by the most dominant mammal - us.

The opening episode has been shot completely in the dark revealing, among other things, the African leopard's specially adapted eyesight.

The changes in behaviour were reported by naturalists who spent five years watching how mammals were coping with rapidly changing habitats.

Mammals begins on BBC One at 19:00 BST on Sunday 31 March.
