Nature documentary series narrated by Sir David Attenborough. A look at predator and prey strategies in the open arenas of desert and grassland.

The open arenas of grassland and desert make up half of all land on our planet. In these exposed habitats, predators like cheetahs, bald eagles and lions can usually see their prey. But it works both ways: their prey can see them too. With nothing but open vistas, the element of surprise is hard-won, and predators must make their own opportunities. This episode explores the strategies of predator and prey in the open arena.

  1. عادل حل عادل منصف. قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ : ( مَثَلُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ فِي تَوَادِّهِمْ وَتَرَاحُمِهِمْ وَتَعَاطُفِهِمْ مَثَلُ الْجَسَدِ إِذَا اشْتَكَى مِنْهُ عُضْوٌ تَدَاعَى لَهُ سَائِرُ الْجَسَدِ بِالسَّهَرِ وَالْحُمَّى ) رواه البخاري و مسلم . تَدَاعَى📢تَدَاعَى📢تَدَاعَى 📢 . قال الله تعالى(فَاسْتَجَبْنَا لَهُ وَنَجَّيْنَاهُ مِنَ الْغَمِّ ۚ وَكَذَٰلِكَ نُنجِي الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ) الايه . اسْتَجَابْ الله 📢 اسْتَجَبابْ الله 📢 اسْتَجَابْ الله 📢.

  2. The predators always pick those that run alone. If the herd sticks closely together,there would be more chances for every member to be out of danger. The calf here runs alone as if shouting to the predator "catch me, I have the best flesh!"

  3. There was a silence.

    New Coffee stood looking Chicken Counter straight in the eye as she drew a deep breath .

    "Hey," CC said without stopping her attempt at forcing a smile. " Let's just let bygones be bygones."

    "Don't be too cocky," NC said. " And don't you forget to remember who has the final say, and you are still not out of the wood yet.

    A thief is still only a thief."

    " ….."

    "And the only thing I long for now more than anything else is…." NC said.

    " Is ?" CC yelled ; there was no loud music or sound of any sort including the kitty's usual 90- decibel

    noise, but there was a mixture of pent-up emotions fermenting inside her.

    Now he was ready to interrogate her as out of nowhere water started dripping on the carpet from the leaking

    (What might be the problem in the roof?)

    " Hyong," persuaded CC. " I know it would be a bit of a hassle, but why don't you take care of the ceiling leaking first? How long has it been lik that to the day? "

    " And that would faciliate your ability to go away with this new coffee of mine, right ?" NC snarled. " But I am not in
    the mood. Sorry, you are out of luck. "

    " And you would run me down this time, right?" Mixture of Emotions snarled back. " Look! I'm better than that !

    Stop the theft concern! "

    the little wildebeest 😢

  4. I almost always cheer for the prey in these videos, but it's different when the hunter is a cheetah. They are so beautiful and magnificent… Really amazing animals.

  5. This is by far my favorite animal scene, the music, the editing, just the whole thing about it, they did such a good job, gives me the chills on how amazing this scene really is

  6. It has to be wild knowing there is a creature that hunts you that you have absolutely no chance of out running. Your existence is a silent acknowledgment of the "I just need to be faster than my friend" theory.

  7. Unfortunately cheetahs are endagered speeches, even more so than lions .Only 7000 cheetahs live in wild . Wildebeest on the other hand is doing very well , more than 1.5 million wildebeest in the world.

  8. I don’t get the hate on cheetahs. They may not be strong but they make up for it with their speed. They’re in my opinion the coolest animal on Earth
