The Tale Of The Peacock And The Tiger
1996 A BBC Wildlife On One
A tale of two very different creatures, but two whose stories are intimately entwined. The peacock is not just an exotic ornament to grand and stately homes but is a truly wild bird found sharing its natural India home with the tiger. The exotic tail of the peacock may owe its existence to the peahen's eye for beauty… but if it grows too long, its owner may end up inside a tiger.
