Wild Frank - Adventure In India

MUMBAI: "It took twenty intense days to find a Bengal tiger. That was one of the real fights of the century," said Frank Cuesta. The popular Spanish TV presenter, tennis coach, adventurer and wildlife expert Frank Cuesta traveled to the banks of the Ganges River in India and Nepal to embark "in the wildest and amazing journey of my life."

Myths and legends surround the Bengal tiger. Often the majestic big cat is reputed as a cannibal and a man-eater. But is there any truth in such horror stories? The fact - - the species is endangered and is threatened due to human intervention. It is estimated that less than 2,500 tigers live in the wild in Asia. To learn more about the Asian big cat, adventurer Frank Cuesta embarks himself on the trail of majestic tiger. His journey takes him from the Himalayan foothills in Nepal, through the dry forests of India to the mangroves of the Sundarbans at the Bay of Bengal.

Discovery Channel follows WILD FRANK on his quest for tigers and meets people who have already encountered the tiger up close. Frank also makes traveling acquaintance with numerous other exotic representatives of the animal kingdom like elephants, yaks and snakes. Starting June 10, viewers take a journey with WILD FRANK IN INDIA every Friday at 9 pm, only on Discovery Channel.

Frank begins his adventure in a monastery of Buddhist monks in the mountains of Nepal and runs through the stunning and remote landscape of this country in search of the tiger. His voyage continues across Nepal to reach India. The naturalist walks the streets of Kolkata and moves to the Sundarbans, world's largest mangrove. The natives have assured him find the Bengal tiger. Frank wants to get to the "last Bengal tiger" to show it in its natural wild state.

"It is one of the most endangered species on the planet. Just a few survive in freedom and is almost as difficult to see them in their habitat as close to them and observe them in their natural wild state. The destruction of their home has become the king of the Asian jungle in a nomadic species that hides lurking all living to attack at any time," said Frank Cuesta, who travelled thousands of kilometers and faced many dangers, like the attack of a Russel viper, whose venom can cause death. His grin moment was sharing a bath in the river next to a herd of elephants.

Accompany Frank on his wild adventures in WILD FRANK IN INDIA every Friday at 9 pm on Discovery Channel. Discover native animals of the Himalayan region, experience the spectacular beauty of the tallest mountains and delve into the tradition and ancient culture of the people of India and Nepal, the last refuges of the legendary Bengal Tiger.
