            Lion Army 獅子大軍

            This month, NGC takes us inside a pride of lions. However, the Singita pride that lives in South Africa's Kruger National Park is not ordinary. There are around 40 lions in this big pride, and life in it is not as easy as you might think. In NGC's Lion Army, we will learn how the pride tries to stay together and live peacefully. Also, the program will reveal the reasons why the pride has so much trouble.

            Being a lion in the African wilderness might seem easy. Often, we see images of lions taking naps all afternoon and making a kill whenever they get hungry. Unfortunately, this is not the case in real life. In reality, when lions hunt, they fail more times than they succeed. Although they are strong and powerful, the animals they hunt are not dumb. They have their own tricks to survive. Even so, this is not why the Singita pride is having trouble. Their problem is that there are nine teenage males in the pride who are not cooperative. Instead, they are lazy, greedy, and mean.

            這個月,國家地理頻道帶領我們融入一群獅子當中。不過生活在南非克魯格國家公園的辛格塔獅群可一點也不平凡。這個龐大的獅群約有四十只獅子,而牠們在里頭的生活可沒有您想象的這般容易。在國家地理頻道的《獅子大軍》中,我們將了解這個獅群如何試圖維持團結并和平共處。此外,本節目也將揭露牠們為何面臨著重重麻煩。

            在非洲荒原里當一只獅子看來似乎容易得很。我們?吹姜{子們整個下午都在睡午覺、餓了才去獵食的畫面?上н@并非現實生活中的情形。事實上,當獅子去獵食,牠們失敗的次數往往比成功的還要多。雖然牠們強而有力,但牠們的獵物卻也不笨。這些獵物們自有生存之道。即便如此,這并不是辛格塔獅群陷入麻煩的原因。問題在于獅群當中那九只既年輕又不合群的小公獅。牠們不但好吃懶做,而且還貪婪兇惡。
