Filmed on a remote island in Antarctica, shrouded in fog – we are treated to stunning footage of a Polar Bear in pursuit of a Walrus. Faced with an imposing wall of blubber and hide, it appears that the world’s largest land carnivore may have met his match.

Watch the awesome fight for survival as a grown male polar bear takes on a walrus colony at the edge of the Arctic circle. A truly epic battle, phenomenally captured in high quality, from the BBC natural history masterpiece, Planet Earth.

Once it gets closer, it begins lumbering towards the herd in the hope it can grab an easy lunch by catching them off guard.
