American cable network Animal Planet will next month premiere Wild Arabia, a two-hour special exploring the region’s dramatic landscapes and wildlife.

The special, coproduced with the BBC and made by the BBC’s Natural History Unit, looks at rocky wastelands, deserts, rugged coastline and dense forestry, featuring animals such as the Arabian oryx and the Arabian leopard.

Using night-vision cameras, the special also captures an encounter between a hyena and a pack of wolves. It premieres August 6 at 8 p.m. EST.
