More About This episode

In northwest India lies the great Thar Desert, where four youngsters are about to be tested by the full force of their harsh habitat. A pair of leopard cubs must fend for themselves when their mother suddenly abandons them. A young lion survives a purge of his pride, but without his mother's milk, he's staring at a death sentence. In the nearby grassy scrublands, a young blackbuck faces a different kind of trial: his first mating season. Can this callow cast of animals prove they have the resourcefulness and resilience to survive?
