Can lions count? Do low-ranking hyenas purposely deceive dominant pack members? Do dark manes drive lionesses wild with desire, and if so, why? Animal behaviorist Kevin Richardson and some of the world's leading wildlife experts run a series of experiments on these predators of the African plains. They will test their coordination, see how they work in teams to tackle unfamiliar tasks and enemies, and reveal how these two social groups, while similar in many ways, are vastly different creatures.

"Lion Whisperer" Kevin Richardson and a team of wildlife experts are handing out the final exams to their students of the South African plains. How will Welgedacht Game Reserve's lions and hyenas measure up to these tests designed to explore their ability to learn, recognize, and hunt in new and unfamiliar settings? Witness the last of these remarkable experiments as these apex predators use mirrors to their advantage, play a numbers game deciding how and who to attack, and cooperate to survive in their natural environment.
