Longleat Safari Park welcomes a pair of endangered Amur tigers who are part of a vital global breeding programme. Meanwhile, an osteopath treats a 150kg gorilla.
Kate Humble and Ben Fogle are back for the first episode in their final week of summer specials at Britain's original safari park. We've already welcomed more new animals this series than ever before, but today we witness one of the most exciting arrivals yet as two of the largest wild cats on the planet pounce onto the park. The pair of endangered Amur tigers are part of a vital global breeding programme, so it's essential they produce cubs to help ensure the survival of their species. But this is the mother of all blind dates - this hopeful love match have never met, so the
big question is will it be love or war when two of earth's most ferocious predators meet for the very first time?
It's a world first for an osteopath who treats Alfie the gorilla for an injury endured play fighting with his silverback brother - but how do you get your healing hands on a 150kg gorilla thought to have 10 times your strength?
It's all hands on deck as Jean Johannsson helps move a whole host of sun-worshipping reptiles outside to catch some rays before finding out how far a binturong will climb for a frozen banana. Meanwhile, the Jungle Kingdom keepers step in to save a viciously bullied meerkat, but will their rescue attempt work?
