BBC Earth's Dynasties is a new series that follows five of the world's most endangered animalsâ€”penguins, chimpanzees, painted wolves, lions, and tigersâ€”as they survive in the wilderness, brushing up against danger and death. Narrated by Planet Earth's David Attenborough, the show has been riveting audiences overseas, and will come to the U.S. on BBC AmericaÂ on January 19. It also has another subset of fans: cats!People have flocked to Twitter to show off their cats' reactions to the lion segment of Dynasties, particularly this breathtaking moment when a male lion is saved from a pack of hyenas by his friend. (Warning: Though no animals are seriously injured in this clip, there is some chomping and tossing.)
That Lion King-esque scenario caught the attention of several kitties, whose owners showed off their curiosity.
