November sees BBC Earth bring back Dynasties II for more twists and turns in our animal character’s life, yet again showing that truth is stranger and more dramatic than any work of fiction. Following the lives of iconic favourites for as much as two years, this series features surprising, dramatic, and heart-warming stories with iconic favourites, elephant and cheetah, as well as unearthing the stories of some unsung heroes of the animal kingdom, puma and hyena. Catch never-before seen moments like new-born elephant twins – something only recorded a handful of times – witness the surprise of a young cheetah when a tiny mole rat fights back, and see the fearsome spectacle of two puma mothers fighting over vital territory in which to raise their precious cubs.

With exclusive access, the BBC follows an international team of experts on an expedition to a war zone to search for the last “unicorn.”
