CBBC: Natural Born Hunters

CBBC Monday 15th February, 8am

A fresh look at some of the most supreme predators in the animal kingdom, looking at how some of the most lethal creatures in the wild survive a typical day - relying on their instincts, speed, and tactics is often not enough, and luck can mean the difference between life and death.

A cheetah, a dragonfly and a peregrine falcon go head-to-head in race to eat. The first to get his or her daily intake of food is the winner. The three contenders have one thing in common - when it comes to hunting they all use speed to help catch their prey. The cheetah is the fastest land mammal reaching speeds of 71mph, the dragonfly is the fastest insect with a top speed of 35mph and the peregrine falcon can fly at over 200mph making it the fastest animal on earth ever.

It's action all the way, with a few surprises thrown in for good measure, in a typical hunting day in the lives of these natural born hunters. Steve Backshall and Barney Harwood commentate on the action as it happens.
