Lots of interesting details about lions and tigers.

Quite a surprise that they it is possible to inter-breed them. The main difference between them is simply the skin!

Inside Natures Giants: Big cats...Well the documentary delved into the influence on my brain, which is because "50" (My favorite rapper") just released an album (Last June) titled Animal Ambition Vol.1, and the [album art], in one aspect, depicts a Lion ([Folks] who know him know that his families crest is one that depicts lions). [Tha]t gave intrigue, and the documentary gave a look at the habits of "Big Cats".

I found myself pondering the Larenyx diffrentiation in the Lion and in a human. The British documentarians depicted the size diffrence, and I pondered was that the reason for 50's selection of the lions on his crest. The documentarians experimented with the Larynyx of the lion, and showed that cause for it's ability to roar in such a manner is indeed the larynyx, yet they went into more elementary information; therefore, in tone, it made fundamental information seem like revelation.

I'm speaking of the mention of the "lion [and the tiger]" being the same animal (Giving they are from the same family is reason enough to have that unconscience and understood in adults, [but for children I say]...)...

This is a great documentary of comparative anatomy, with a good combination of dissection and other content (field content, analysis). There is even some comparative human anatomy at the end which was interesting using a live volunteer to demonstrate the larynx in action.
