The hunt

Flying fish picked off from above and below : 
Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water into air, where their long, wing-like fins enable gliding flight for considerable distances.
It appears these flying fish are in a no win situation, picked off above the surface by frigatebird's and devoured underwater by the dorado.

These amazing bottlenose dolphins have adopted a unique way of hunting fish.
Taking advantage of the low tide, these super smart mammals are able to beach themselves on mud banks, and attack in perfect synchrony.

We track a hungry but determined polar bear as it seeks to ambush a plump seal.
With the odds stacked against it, this scrawny looking bear will need to pull off an amazing manoeuvre if it's to get a well earned meal.

Epic footage of one of Earth's most feared predators, the great white shark.
Each dawn, cape fur seals leave their colony to go fishing.
To reach the open sea they must cross a narrow strip of water which is patrolled by the largest predatory fish on the Planet.
