On the Season 2 finale of “Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan,” the “Lost” star and host is traveling deep into the wilds of Thailand,

searching for one of the most unique and endangered

primates on the planet, the Slow Loris.

During his search, Monaghan finds and plays with a rare Indochinese tiger cub. Watch a sneak peek preview above and below.

“The researchers that we’ve been working with said

that the last time they saw a wild tiger was about

six years ago,” says Monaghan. “That just shows you just how rare

tigers are in this part of the world, and in fact all

over the world … One of the sad things about these

gorgeous little animals is that in the next five,

maybe 10 years, these little creatures might go

extinct in the wild. Obviously, that’s a very tragic

thing for the tiger, but what does it say about human

beings as a species?”

“Wild Things With Dominic Monaghan” airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on BBC America.
