In this episode of Nature, a mother leopard is shown over the course of two days as she cares for her litter of three cubs. Life in the Kenyan game preserve may be protected from man's hunting, but cubs are always vulnerable, and the leopard has to keep an eye out for animals looking for an easy meal. Nature: Leopard, a Darkness in the Grass follows the leopard as she utilizes her stealth and cunning to secure enough food to sustain her growing family. David Attenborough hosts this study in contrasts between the fierce huntress and the tender mother.
