“One of the world's most adaptable and fearsome predators, living in the most hostile landscape on earth: the Leopard Seal”

Death lurks under the ice in the shape of one of Antarctica's most ferocious killers. Welcome to the icy realm of the leopard seal - Lord of the Ice - vicious predators with huge, reptile-like heads, gaping jaws and bladed teeth.

Who are these ferocious predators of the Antarctic continent that kill thousands of seals and penguins each year and leave some injured birds behind to the scavengers of the ice?
To find out, come and follow Göran Ehlmé, an experienced underwater cinematographer and expert of the cold seas, in his quest to uncover the fascinating behaviour of the secretive Leopard Seals.

Despite the many tales of leopard seals attacking humans and attempting to drag them under the ice, Göran Ehlme, after four years of experience filming in the Antarctic, is ready to enter the water and meet the beast behind the legends.

As he gradually becomes accepted by several leopard seals, Göran learns about their individual personalities, behaviour and hunting techniques. There are some remarkable insights, and in one astonishing sequence, Göran is even gifted a dead penguin that one of the seals has caught especially for him.

These ferocious carnivores have never been documented in detail before, until now. Get a unique insight into the mysterious daily lives of Leopard Seals and discover some never-before-filmed behaviours of these highly intelligent predators.
This documentary will reveal how Leopard Seals hunt penguins underwater or on land, charging unwary trespassers on the ice, be they penguin or human!

This DVD is accompanied by a beautifully illustrated 24-page hardback reference book. Watch the close-up wildlife film and at the same time read the book to learn about habitats, diet, life cycle and more. The book is packed with intriguing facts, illustrations, photography and a 'Test your knowledge' quiz.
