BBC is now broadcasting the much-anticipated sequel to its critically acclaimed nature documentary series Planet Earth. Every episode features a global overview of a different biome or habitat on Earth. The second episode is all about mountains and the team managed to film one of the most majestic of all mountain creatures – the snow leopard.
The leopards’ communication rituals, using urine sprayed on to rocks, had never been filmed before and was even unknown to scientists. The unique footage not only captured the leopards fighting but witnessed four of the creatures in the same place, again another first on film.
