Mutual of Omaha's: Wild Kingdom

IT's tense in the wilderness today as we witness the attempt by Nala, fierce huntress of the Natageti, to take down her prey, the elusive gray squirrel. I watch from the lawn chair while my assistant risks life and limb to get in close.


Nala has already made her first stealthy attack on the squirrel by the time we get the cameras rolling. A near miss has left the hunter frustrated, and separated by a gap too large to make another charge. Plus, the squirrel has used its natural climbing advantage to seek the high ground. At this point, the squirrel does not seem to concerned about the near miss.


Our hunter remains in stalking mode for some time, before finally settling down for a longer vigil.


Ever diligent, she knows that sooner or later she will get her squirrel.

Tune in next week as we present the bizarre mating rituals of the Tanzanian Sheep Monkeybat, on Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom!

  1. Frankly, he looks like he's just trying to heat dump into the fence!

    Nala really is gorgeous... as is the yard!
