Lions are the most studied of all big cats and yet most of us are only familiar with their hunting behaviour and know little of the intricate details of lion life. This fascinating series travels beyond the stereotypes usually associated with lions to reveal the real lives of these remarkable cats. For the first time, The Truth About Lions brings together the work of dozens of scientists and decades of research offering a completely new perspective on lion behaviour. Unlike many big cats, lions are incredibly sociable creatures. Researchers believe that this is the key to almost everything about their biology - from how they look, to how they hunt, live and even how and when they die.
