Tiger: Spy In The Jungle
Premieres on Sunday August 17th, 2008 at 8pm EST on The Animal Planet.
Tiger: Spy in the Jungle shows three different stages of a tiger’s life — from playful cubs, to learning adolescents and ultimately to young hunting adults — and shows how the relationship with the other jungle animals changes as they mature.
Filled with humor and incredible action, the story of this dramatic carnivore growing up in an incredibly rich jungle world is made even more entertaining by the involvement of our oversized camera assistants.

Explorer: Zoo Tiger Escape
Until December 25th 2007, no animal had ever escaped and killed a visitor at an accredited U.S. zoo. The first animal to achieve this dubious distinction was a tiger. A mild Christmas day in San Francisco has turned into a bloody tragedy the likes of which have never been seen before. Two young men were mauled, one 17-year-old boy and one 4-year-old Siberian tigress lay dead. Experts explore what might have happened in hopes of improving how dangerous animals are kept in captivity.
