Recording in South Africa, Jason Goldman hears from big cat tracker Boone Smith about climbing inside a plastic box to see how lions feed and about his adventures tracking snow leopards in Afghanistan. Watch Boone in "Man v. Lion" on Nat Geo WILD's #BigCatWeek, Friday Nov 28, at 9pm.

Jason is an animal behaviour researcher, science communicator and wildlife-nerd extraordinaire whose work has been featured in countless science blogs and publications (Scientific AmericanIo9 and Conservation Magazine to name a few). Each episode of The Wild Life is essentially an in-depth conversation with someone whose work or interests revolve around animals or wildlife, on topics ranging from the science of animal behaviour and conservation biology, to animal ethics, the wildlife in your own backyard – and beyond.
