The footage of the tigers was featured in the documentary, Lost Land of the Tiger, which was shown in three parts this week on BBC One.
Tigers have recently been filmed in the mountains of Bhutan, giving the first solid evidence that the endangered species can survive at high altitudes. Camera traps set by the BBC, which has been capturing footage for months, has recorded a male tiger and a female tiger at an altitude of approximately 13,450 feet. The male was seen marking territory, indicating that the pair are not just passing through, which was thought to be the case with earlier evidence of tigers in the area.
