Dynasties offers an immersive insight into the shifting hierarchies of animal families. Each chapter follows a different group, for instance rival packs of painted wolves and a tiger protecting her newborn cubs. The book charts tender moments when bonds are strengthened, but above all, the rivalries that tip the balance of power.
Many animals are dependent on complex social relationships for their survival. While lions hunt as a pride, penguins huddle together to keep from freezing in the bitter Antarctic winter. Powerful dynasties lay claim to vast swathes of territory, fighting off rivals and securing their hunting grounds for generations to come.
Dynasties reveals in astonishing detail the social lives of our planet’s most fascinating animals. With over 200 photographs and insights from the crew of the BBC series.
Family isn’t just important. It’s everything.
