Desert Lions 沙漠獅群 Can this pride of lions survive the coming dry season? 這群獅子能夠安然度過眼前的旱季嗎？
Northern Botswana is home to Nxai Pan National Park, which is a huge area of flat grasslands▼ that go on for miles. During the wet season, these plains are a rich, green paradise. The park is home to huge herds of elephants, antelope▼, impala▼, and more. However, this land has a dark side as well. When the rains stop, the heat returns. What was once green and growing becomes a dusty desert. The lakes and rivers dry up, the grasses die, and most of the animals move on in search of food.
This month, National Geographic follows one pride of lions that has managed to live in this harsh▼ land on Desert Lions. The pride is led by two male lions that have ruled the area for almost 10 years. However, they are getting older, and the next dry season is just beginning. Will the kings of the Nxai Pan be able to survive another dry season, or will they finally give in to the heat? Tune in to Desert Lions on National Geographic to find out how their story ends.
