Life in the grassland is a constant, dramatic struggle for survival between predator, prey, and scavenger. This delightfully gory narrative follows the life cycle of one carcass as it feeds a whole ecosystem of meat-eaters. 

A hungry lioness attacks a grazing zebra on the plains of East Africa. She bites it in the throat. The zebra is dead. After the kill, the lioness and her pride rip the carcass open and eat. Vultures swoop in and fight over scraps of meat, and cunning jackals compete with bone-crushing hyenas for a piece of the feast.
