The time of sunset is defined in astronomy as the moment when the trailing edge of the Sun’s disk disappears below the horizon in the west. There are few things in nature as photogenic as the sky at sunset, especially animals. The rich bright gold, pink and orange colors make unusually beautiful pictures of animals illuminated by the sun.

Eternal Enemies – Lions Vs Hyenas, National Geographic Documentary (Video)

Eternal Enemies - Lions Vs Hyenas, National Geographic Documentary (Video) | Third Monk

Although we romanticize lions as mighty kings of the jungle, their reign is challenged daily in southern Africa by vicious packs of hyenas that compete for prey. Between the two species exists an ancient feud, and it unfolds in National Geographic’s Eternal Enemies. Watch as lions bring down a zebra, only to be attacked themselves by a pack of hyenas that chases them into the trees. Glowering, the big cats watch as the thieves devour their dinner.

Other scenes in this video are equally impressive, including life inside a hyena den–which captures the sounds of lions growling outside–and a tense encounter between a snake-bitten lioness and a pack of hyenas. With its gripping story line, Eternal Enemies is a standout among animal documentaries.
