Inside Nature’s Giants
RVC experts feature in Channel 4 science documentary
22 June 2010 - 9pm, Channel 4
The series that takes the Haynes Manual approach to biology concludes by focusing on lions and tigers. At the Royal Veterinary College, this means dissections that reveal how the creatures come to roar so loudly – it's all in the larynx that sits low in the throat, apparently. Meanwhile, in South Africa, vet Mark Evans and comparative anatomist Joy Reidenberg see lions in the wild, and Richard Dawkins explains the evolutionary arms race that gave us oversized moggies. Excellent, although not for the squeamish!
