Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom: New Season

Ahoy, animal lubbers! Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, a wildlife documentary that debuted more than 40 years ago, is back for a fifth season. Follow a trio of "ice whales" as they tireless make their way from the northern arctic to the southern hemisphere. Or take a peek at a rare Borneo pygmy elephant that few humans have laid eyes on. Be instantly transported to the Australian Outback, where you can stand alongside a community fighting to save the endangered wombat.

And meet Kezi, one of the South African Phinda Game Reserve's female leopards. This daring darling has made a habit of moseying across Phinda's boundaries to neighboring farms and attacking cattle. Suffice to say, her midnight snacking hasn't endeared her to local farmers. Now, our erstwhile hunter faces the threat of becoming the hunted.

Tune in to Animal Planet every Sunday at 7pm (ET/PT) to get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures. :: Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom
